Presidents’ plans

Sandra Carr takes over from long-serving Pamela Austin as Stanhoe WI President.

It was a momentous occasion at the November meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI, their AGM, when Pamela Austin retired as President after eleven years in the position. She was thanked heartily by members for her sterling work and wonderful ideas and for leading our WI forward in the past few years, as well as through our centenary year.

Outgoing WI President Pamela Austin

Our new President, elected wholeheartedly by members, is Sandra Carr, who also lives in Stanhoe and has been a committee member for several years.

During the meeting members received, and passed unanimously, a very detailed financial report from our treasurer, a positive and wide ranging report of our past year from the secretary, and an all-encompassing report from our president.

Several future outings were discussed, such as the forthcoming Christmas Lunch, a spring visit to the National Trust Textile Centre to see the conservation work outlined enthusiastically by a speaker last year, and a second visit to RAF Marham.

In December, the final month of our centenary year, members are to receive their individual Centenary Mugs, and will each be presented with a specially prepared book relating to aspects of Stanhoe and Barwick WI from its formative years.

It was a very happy meeting.
