Wookey Hole W.I. February 2020 Meeting
Our meeting commenced with a moment of quietness whilst we remembered Jean, a W.I. member who had died recently after a short illness.
Our thoughts are with her family.
Jill then welcomed everyone including our speaker Jill Perryman who was to tell us about the 57 Anglican Cathedrals that she, and her campervan Daisy
Resolution forms have now been submitted, Roadshow dates noted, and a donation to ACWW Glasgow
Conference has been sent.
Plans for future events were then discussed. Coffee mornings , our 73rd Birthday Lunch ,our involvement in
the St Cuthberts Church Flower Festival in June and knitting pouches for orphaned Australian Joey's.
Jill, our speaker, quite captivated us all with her quirky perspective of the Cathedrals that she
Most of us were familiar with some of the Cathedrals and so her talk was often prompted by tales from our
ladies which added to the enjoyment. Slides demonstrated the distinctive features of many of these wonderful buildings. There were unusual fonts, paintings, statues, stain glass windows, altars, pulpits
and so much more. Rippon Cathedral had a mechanical beating hand to aid the organist as he had his back to the congregation. It did look strange.
Myrtle , who said that she had visited 20 of these Cathedrals, thanked Jill for her interesting
talk. Jill then judged our competition for a religious item. Our members had
brought a good and varied selection.
