W.I. September report

‘Bishops, Builders and Bones part two’ was the talk by Andrew Negus that all members had been looking forward to. Andrew visited us last year with ‘part one’ telling us about the greedy Bishops of Winchester, their buildings and their demise. Part two took us from 1200 to 1700 and we heard how Winchester’s population went from 8,000 in 1200 to 3,000 after the plague and how it went from being the Capital of England, then gave way to London and back again; depending who was on the throne. We look forward to hearing part three in the future. If you get a chance to listen to his talks, you won’t be disappointed.
Information was given out on our imminent jumble sale and a request for tombola prizes. We do enjoy our jumble sales and the proceeds enable us to make charitable donations to local organisations. We are limited to who we give to, as it has to be something that is of benefit to everyone in the community. Your presence will be much appreciated, even if only for a cup of tea.
We were also reminded to cover shoe boxes ready to pack all the items we have collected through the year as Christmas presents for children in poorer countries. Tins of food for the Harvest Festival were also requested and we decorate a window for the occasion. Other events are our Group skittles match in September, Autumn Group meeting in October and a visit to Burridge and Parkgate WI for a Harvest Lunch.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 13th October and the talk is about Lordington Lavender. Should you wish to join us we are at the hall at 7.15pm. If you are on your own, you will be greeted at the door by Sue – so don’t be shy.
