Report of the May 2018 meeting of Wookey Hole WI

 

It has been such a busy year, it was almost a relief to arrive at the peaceful haven of our annual meeting, so that we could sum up all that has been achieved over the last twelve months. Last month we had the excitement of the Somerset Federation of WIs Centenary parade through Wells. We proudly carried our recently completed banner in the company of hundreds of fellow WI members behind the band and the Town Crier. And a contingent of our hard working ladies, together with members of Wells WI, womanned the tea and cake tables, and the notable quantity of washing up, in St Cuthbert’s Church. Two days later we relaxed, chatted and laughed over a delicious lunch at West Horrington to celebrate our own WI’s 71st anniversary. 1947 is just within memory for some of us, but we seldom admit it.

At our meeting, President Jill Deane welcomed Lynne and Alison from Croscombe WI, who were present in an official capacity to oversee the election of our new committee and President. We thanked those committee members who had decided to retire, and welcomed the fresh contingent. Jill was re-elected unopposed as President. The Croscombe ladies also kindly judged the competitions, selecting with difficulty their favourites among a beautiful collection of garden flowers, and braving a selection of drawn and painted imaginary animals that you certainly wouldn’t want to encounter in a dark alley.
