Gosberton Womens Institute

Gosberton WI meets on the second Tuesday of every month (except August)
at the Public Hall Gosberton, starting at 7.15 pm. 

President Rosemary Sneath welcomed members to the Public Hall for the January meeting.  The numbers were reduced somewhat, due to illnesses.

The record of the previous month were read - members had enjoyed making the Christmas crackers and some had been inspired to make more for the festive season.  £43 subscriptions are due and the treasurer was kept busy recording renewals.  

Members were reminded of how some of the funds are spent - on hall hire, speakers etc., so that we have to ensure we can get the best we can afford, but not at the expense of losing our enjoyment of the meetings.

Several Federation events were discussed, and a suggestion that we could organise regular events ourselves, outside of normal meeting nights.

Sandra Saxby, Pat Sturgeon and Delcy Moore were winners in the quiz, and Sandra also won the raffle.

Members enjoyed a tasty supper of soup and bread roll, prepared by Sandra who was thanked for her efforts.

The next meeting will be on Tuesday 11th February when Annie Best from Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue will be talking about fire safety.  There will be a red sales table and the competition will be for anything to do with Lincolnshire. 

Visitors are welcome at our meetings, and if anyone would like further information or has any questions about Gosberton WI please contact the secretary, Eileen Johnson on 01775 750553 or email   eileenej23(AT - use the usual symbol)aol.com
