Wookey Hole W.I.report of July Meeting

President Jill welcomed everyone to one of the hottest meetings that we could remember

despite the welcome breeze from several fans.

 Our recent visit to the Somerset Rural Life Museum was a great success and we appreciated the current Suffragette Exhibition which was on display. We have two Summer gatherings planned which enables us to relax and enjoy a good ‘natter’

   Our speaker was Annie Sapsead. She is a Natural Health Practitioner specializing in Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Reiki Healing. She has 20 years experience and her interest began when her arthritic mother benefited greatly from the treatment. We were treated to Rose and Geranium Oils which we massaged into our hands. Annie demonstrated the importance of this as we exercised our wrists and fingers.

She explained other treatments that benefit our health and  she also treats patients in nursing homes.

Sheila thanked her for her interesting talk.

Competition for a candle holder was 1st Pat B, 2nd Rose D

3rd Jill D.

Flower of the month 1st Jill D, 2nd Sue H ,3RD Maggie P

Silver cups for last years competitions were awarded to Jan S

and Jill D.

The afternoon ended with very welcome refreshments.

Two of our members are unwell and best wishes were sent to them by everyone.
