President Jenny Pocock welcomed 15 members and 1 visitor to the Public Hall for the September meeting of Gosberton WI.  The new programme had been printed and was given out. Secretary Eileen Johnson read out all relevant correspondence including a request for information about any of our ancestors during the 1st World War for an upcoming community publication.  Most members agreed that those who were involved in the war effort were reluctant to talk about it.  Notification had been received of the annual subscription, due in January - £42 for the year.

After the refreshment break, Jenny introduced our speaker - Anne Hill, who gave an insight into what can be achieved through yoga. She led us through some gentle exercises and breathing techniques (all done while sitting down).  She was thanked by Jenny.

Birthday gifts were given to Pam Jackson and Rosemary Sneath and Pam also won the raffle.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 9th October when Sally Glossop will explain about "The A Word" (Autism).
