What a fine start to the New Year. Two new members joined our WI and three more are seriously interested !
In previous years, we have held our January meeting in the committee room, where we had a social evening of playing board games with some festive fare. This year we played Kurling, a team game similar to bowls, using “stones” with castors, with “pushers” available for those less able to bend. There was much encouragement, enthusiasm and laughter from team members, such that we completely forgot that the Parish Council were meeting in the committee room. Hopefully the plate of cakies that we gave the councillors smoothed things over!
On a more serious note, we voted for the resolution that will be selected for our National Meeting in the summer. The greatest number of members voted in favour of the resolution to promote Organ Donation.
This year, the WI is to support the local Food Bank. Members are asked to bring an item of long shelf-life food to our meetings, with one member offering to take the donations, together with that collected in the church, into the Dorchester Food Bank.
For our next meeting, on Wednesday 5th February we are pleased to welcome Chris Scholes who is to talk about “Textiles and Pictures”
Please don’t forget the big event in the Lulworth calendar - the WI Jumble Sale !
This year it is to be held on Saturday 15th February at 2pm, with donations gladly accepted at the hall from 10am. This is a brilliant way of recycling items for which you have no further use.
Do please make 2014 the year that you consider joining the WI. Visitors will be made most welcome, and you will soon learn of all the local, County and National events that members can enjoy.
