Our meeting began with a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday as Pauline F is due to celebrate a very special day. Our W.I. also had cause to celebrate as it was our 72nd Birthday. We ,and two invited guests, enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Burcott Inn. 

Next month is our AGM so nomination forms were completed and then our thoughts turned to Summer Activities. Most involved food and relaxation.

was fascinating and Ercol furniture and Vinyl records are now the 'in thing'.

Our competition was 'Bring an antique item ' Much to our delight she told us about our items that had interested her. It was quite an eye opener .Sheila thanked her for a talk which , had we more time . we could have happily extended.
