True crime

The WI continues its fascination with murder.

The planned meeting for Stanhoe and Barwick WI was cancelled in March due to extreme weather conditions. But our efficient bookings secretary found us an alternative speaker for a meeting on the following Thursday, which members were pleased to attend.

Sue Parry came with one of her clever presentations on “My Night at the Crime Museum”. The Metropolitan Police Crime Society host a talk each year in their Crime Museum (not accessible to the public), and as a thank-you to the speakers invite them for a dinner and tour of the museum at a later date.

Sue showed us gruesome images of some of the displays (a collection of Hanging Ropes was one), and told us the stories of dreadful crimes perpetrated by Denis Nilson, John Haigh, Derek Bentley, John Christie, Ruth Ellis, and later on Fred and Rosemary West. We listened intently.

It was a gruesome afternoon, enhanced by little stories of personal reminiscences of some of the places involved, which lightened the proceedings.

Tea and biscuits and normal WI chatter followed on!
