LITTLE LEIGH WI by Jan Whalley

President, Bernadette O’Donnell welcomed everyone to this month’s meeting of Little Leigh WI.

Thanks were given to the Members who had sorted out Members Night. This had been altered at the last minute but had been enjoyed by all who attended.

Invitations had been sent out for the 70th Birthday Celebrations to be held on October 21.

A Japanese Jewellery Day was being held on October 14, at WI House.

A ‘100 Years of WI Celebration’ will be held at The Winsford Academy on October 22. Tickets £7

Subscriptions from January will be £ 37.50 with Dual Members £ 18.00.

The Speaker for the evening, Gay Rhodes, was introduced. She gave a very enlightening and amusing talk about what to expect when ‘a certain age’ is reached. She used some of her life experiences as examples and the tale of her first visit to the gym left members in tears.

She was thanked by Brenda Smith

A Special Raffle was won by Florence Grice.
