BOSLEY W.I. – April 2018 report

 

After opening the meeting and with an almost full attendance, Joan welcomed 2 guests from Mossley W.I. Sue Clarke and Ann Ward, and our new member, Susan Burgess.

 

Kath Bullock’s competition entry of a “Record in a sleeve” was chosen to represent Bosley at the Cloud Group meeting on May 2nd at the New Life Church, Congleton, when the speaker for the evening will be the entertainer, Mark Andrews.

 

As the Spring season gets underway, we continue to plan our busy programme of events including a “10 Years of Hats” presentation in June at the Heritage Centre, Macclesfield, and a guided tour of the AVRO Heritage Museum, Woodford in July when, along with any male members of our families, we will also be shown around the cockpits of the Vulcan and Lancaster aircrafts.

 

Our original speaker for the evening unfortunately had to postpone his talk but we were delighted instead to have Judy Popley, who came at very short notice. Judy gave a fantastic visual presentation on “My Life at Granada”.

 

Granada Studios was the first purpose built TV Centre in Britain in 1956. Judy brought back many memories of the early Granada shows by relating how she started her career in the Press Office meeting many famous people along the way. She worked on variety shows such as the Paul Daniels shows, Drama documentaries and with Johnny Hamp’s “Light Entertainment” shows. Coronation Street was the jewel in the crown for the studios starting in 1960 and still continuing to this day, of course. It was whilst working on “Corrie” that she met her future husband who turned out to be the son of actor Bernard Youens (real name Bernard Popley) who played the legendary Stan Ogden in the soap.

 

Pat Heath gave the vote of thanks for an interesting and entertaining talk which gained a well-deserved round of applause.

 

Pat Lovatt won the competition for a photo with Bar Harrison second. Many thanks were given to Pat Lovatt and Wendy Taylor for their delicious cakes and scones.
