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

President Jenny Pocock welcomed members to the Public Hall for the June meeting of Gosberton WI.  The speaker for the evening, Derek Harris, requested that we sing "Jerusalem" as it was one of his favourite hymns.  We normally only sing it at special meetings, but we duly obliged him and his rousing baritone accompaniment and final flourish brought a little extra to the tune!  Derek is a member of the "Half Cut Theatre" and he gave a history of canals and barges, while wearing the special costume of the day.  His talk was interspersed with bargees' songs (a little like sea shanties).  He was thanked by Jenny.

Correspondence read out included details of various trips, visits and quizzes and also a litter-pick organised by the British Legion to take place in the village on 4th August. 

June birthdays were celebrated by Jean Butler, Christine Clark, Sandra Saxby and Pat Walters.  Refreshments were served by Betty Dakers and Pam Jackson and Sue Pengelly was lucky in the raffle.

The next WI meeting will be on Tuesday 10th July at 7.15 pm when Julie Brierly will be talking about the benefits of Osteopathy.
