Bosley W.I.

Not exactly a “Welcome to 2019” for our Group, more of a hurried cancellation of our January meeting on the 31st as we’d had a heavy fall of snow the previous day.   It was also bitterly cold and not the best of conditions for travelling. So sadly, there isn’t a report of a meeting this month.

We did, however, manage to have our monthly Committee meeting a few days earlier when we finalised our plans for the forthcoming year. Thanks to Shirley Moss and Sue Addinell, we have an interesting and varied programme for this year.  On March 28th we welcome Geoffrey Browne enlightening us on the origin of “Standing stones” and their history, and on April 25th we are looking forward to hearing the renowned master of dialect, Derek Poulson, on “It’s not what you say….”.  Our full 2019 programme will shortly be on the Bosley website. To view, please see www.bosleyvillage.org.uk.

Four of our members will once again put their knowledge and memories to the test in the first round of the annual County Quiz at Mottram on February 20th.  March 14th brings the CFWI Annual Council Meeting at Northwich and on the 28th  March, author and screenwriter, Adam Hamdy is the speaker at the Literary Lunch at Christleton.  British born Adam works in both Britain and America and will be launching his latest crime thriller, “Aftershock” in November.

As an explanation to readers, we understand that you will be reading our January report in the March issue of this magazine.  We’re not late in producing and apologise if it seems historical when you read our articles.  This is due to our meetings being held on the last Thursday of the month, thereby missing the monthly deadline for publication in Peak Parishes. Consequently, the report on the recycling talk at our February meeting will be in the April issue.

A future date for your diary. All are welcome at our annual coffee morning.  It’s on Thursday, May 2nd at Gawsworth Methodist Chapel Hall, 10am till 12pm.  Always a good assortment of stalls, plus a raffle and coffee and biscuits.

Visitors are also welcome at our monthly meetings which are held at Bosley Methodist Chapel, Tunstall Toad, SK11 0PB.  For further information please ring 01260-222933.
