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 Charles' wedding cake".

For details of membership fees, please contact Eileen, details below. 

Gosberton WI met at the Public Hall for their November meeting.  President Christine Clark guided us through the usual business and names were taken for the Donington Carol Concert. 

As well as detailing other outings and events coming up in 2018, secretary Eileen Johnson reminded everyone that the carers' packs project was still ongoing and told members what items were still needed to complete the packs.

The lunch group will be meeting in November and organiser Jill Fitzjohn will be contacting members with details.

The speaker for this evening was Steve Brown, driving instructor.  He told us of some amusing experiences connected with learning to drive, and also outlined some of the changes in the driving test over the years, with the introduction of the theory test and now training in the use of sat navs.  He was thanked by Chris.

Jean Baker and Jenny Pocock served refreshments, while Rosemary Sneath looked after the pink and purple "bring and buy" stall.  Chris was the lucky raffle winner.

The next meeting is on Tuesday 12th December when we will experience "50 Shades of Graham" - the mind boggles!  The stall will be a wrapped Xmas parcels stall and there will be seasonal refreshments.

Visitors are welcome, (£3.50) and if anyone wanting more information can call the secretary, Eileen Johnson on 01775 750553 or email   eileenej23(AT - use the usual symbol)aol.com
