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. 

 

President Christine Clark opened the July meeting and welcomed members.  The Summer Fair had been well attended and had made a welcome addition to institute funds.  All those who made cakes and jam or helped in any way were thanked.  Ann Harvey also thanked members who had made cakes for the WI refreshment tent at the Lincolnshire Show, she said they were very much appreciated.

Several items from the newsletter were read out as well as details of available outings and events.  Names were taken of those attending Pinchins for afternoon tea on 8th August, and the lunch group will be meeting at the Merry Monk on 27th July.

July birthdays were being celebrated by Jenny Pocock and Jean Baker.

The speaker was made very welcome.  He was Robin Dennett of Dennett's ice cream. He showed pictures of the business from the time it was started by his grandfather in 1926 and how it has grown since then - still with family members involved.  The ice cream is still made to the original recipe, although lots of different flavours are now made, using natural products wherever possible.  The 3 types of ice cream he brought with him were excellent and soon disappeared!  He was thanked by Betty Dakers.

Lucky raffle winners were Sonia Pacey, Sandra Saxby and Rose Clay; while Sue Pengelly and Jean Butler were in charge of refreshments.

There is no meeting in August, but those members going to Pinchins should meet outside the Public Hall at 2pm on Tuesday 8th to arrange cars etc.

The September meeting (Tuesday 12th) is an open meeting where there will be a buffet supper, raffle and a bring and buy stall.  The speaker will be Sian Fox who will be talking all things "foodie" and hosting a quiz.
