A good WI year

Stanhoe WI members look back on recent successes.

On a very wet afternoon in November a small group of members, including two new members, met together for the AGM of Stanhoe and Barwick WI.

Excellent reports of our activities were given by the secretary, treasurer, and president. Members had recently participated in an exhibition of craft items at the North Creake Community Action Day, had attended the area Federation Meeting at Rudham, had collected monies in support of the Baby Basics charity and ACWW, and had supplied and run a very successful cake stall in support of WI funds.

Plans were outlined for our upcoming centenary year, with a centenary activity in most months.

And we also re-elected Pamela Austin as our president, Valerie Robson as secretary and Julia Walton as treasurer, and welcomed Sandra Carr and Pam Protheroe onto the committee for the coming year. Thanks were given to retiring committee members.

In order to get to know each other more fully everyone had brought along an item which was special to them, to talk about. These ranged from a much loved Mrs Teddy, through a selection of rings – one of which was in memory of a Wesleyan preacher – to an apron and a Scottish dancing sash, a selection of books, a piece of music, photos, and a dangling wooden figure which had been brought back from the battlefield and was an example of “trench art”.

It was a remarkable afternoon.
