Womens Institute



At the January meeting our speaker was Mark Cantrill who spoke knowledgeably about church stained glass windows, with special reference to those at South Leverton and Saundby.

In February Sue Floyd, a member of Ranskill WI, spoke about royal brides from Victoria to Eugenie. This was illustrated with slides and was very interesting. It was the Institutes 55th birthday and we celebrated with cake and sherry.

The March meeting was our Annual meeting with guest, Jane Jefferson. We had a quiz, cheese and biscuits and the WI Shop was there for us to make purchases. The annual competition prize winner was Heather Cree. The elected President was Jane Hodgson, Treasurer Bernadette Coultate and Secretary Dorothy Christie.

Lunch club visits have been to The Queens at East Markham, Torworth Grange and Thaymar.
