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.

 

In a change from the usual format, the speakers were introduced first at the April meeting of Gosberton WI.  Louise O'Connor, along with her colleagues Annie and Sue from LIVES gave a most interesting and enlightening presentation about their work.  They are a volunteer service, unique to Lincolnshire, whose training, uniform and equipment is paid for by donations, fund-raising and a little help from the NHS.  Very often, being local. they arrive at an incident before the regular ambulance or paramedics and can give vital help very quickly.  We were all reassured that, should we need them, we would be in very capable hands.

Sandra Saxby gave the vote of thanks.

There was a short business meeting, an invitation to Tollgate WI's birthday meeting, and details of various events before refreshments were served by Delcy Moore and Jean Butler.  Sandra was lucky in the raffle.

In the Annual meeting which followed, Christine Clark gave the President's report in which she thanked the committee and everyone for their help and support throughout the year.  Secretary Eileen Johnson gave the committee report, outlining the group's activities over the past year and Betty Dakers gave her treasurer's report.  WI Adviser Ann Harvey spoke of the importance of a good committee and urged other members to join the committee.  The committee members were introduced and new President Jenny Pocock was duly elected.

Next meeting will be Tuesday 8th May at 7.15 at the Public Hall when Bernadette Chapman will be demonstrating sugar craft.
