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. 

We have a brief business meeting, discuss outings & invitations etc, acknowledge birthdays and special event. Then we welcome the speaker. We try to bring a variety to our meetings and in the past we have heard speakers on subjects as viverse as "Life in the circus" and Prince charle's wedding cake!

The February meeting of Gosberton Women's Institute went smoothly, despite the advertised speaker not being available. Fortunately, local man Ray Bishop was able to step in at short notice and give a very enlightening talk about origami - it's origins and uses. He was also able to show us a few simple folds and let us have a go ourselves.  He also showed the wonderful models he had made using that process.  He was thanked by Chris Clark.  

Refreshments were served by Chris along with Jeannette Webb and then the "business" followed.  Details were given of various upcoming events and invitations, and the treasurer continued to accept membership fees.  She reported that the 2018 accounts were now complete and had been audited.  

Preparations were made for the institute's 84th birthday meeting next month and also the annual meeting in April, when committee and officers can be elected.

Members celebrating birthdays this month, Eileen Johnson, Jill and Jess Fitzjohn and Val Brocklehurst, were given birthday gifts and good wishes.  The monthly meal will be at the Lime Tree, Boston College - full details from Jill.
