November 2021

The November meeting turned out to be very busy and interesting. Several visitors and new faces came to join in and see what we are all about. Paula Pierce the environmental officer from WI county office in Shrewsbury came along to tell us about her WI story and to judge our photographic competition which had a theme of ‘Local with an environmental twist’. Dee Holes was the winner with her photograph of a pile of household rubbish just dumped by a hedge in a lovely field where she walks her dog. It had obviously only recently been dumped and was quite shocking. Why do people do it?

Judith and Angela had craft tables where members could have a go at making their own or buy the lovely items already made by Judith and Angela. All proceeds going to charity. Members bought along their own craft items and there was lots of chat and laughter.

We are having a Christmas meal at The Shrewsbury Arms on 30th November and Jack Dent the magician is coming to entertain us at our Christmas meeting on the 14th December so lots to look forward to.  Albric is following the WI code by helping women find friendship, thinking about our environment and being involved in local issues, therefore we are planning a programme for 2022 that encompasses all these things. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings on the second Tuesday of every month at the Red House 7.30pm.
