WI. Due to a variety of causes, mainly illness, our meeting in March was rather poorly attended. We were sitting, rather glumly, in the village hall until Mary D came up with the idea of us going back to her house. A most enjoyable afternoon followed, in fact one member was heard to say that playing Scrabble was better than having a meeting with a Speaker. The very idea!

VILLAGE HALL: such a lot of work is going on and soon there will be a bright new kitchen. A library / book swap is planned, possibly one morning a month when there will be cafe style seating with refreshments. Two large bookcases are waiting to be filled with bestsellers. Watch this space.
