Bosley W.I.

BOSLEY W.I. report – April 2019

 

The April meeting was very well attended as we welcomed 2 visitors from Wincle W.I. and our speaker, the well-known master of dialect, Derek Poulson.  Derek had us in fits of laughter as he took us through the English, Scottish and Irish variety of dialects.  No script, just his own experiences and observations of people as he recalled witty conversations, local “old wives tales” and everyday expressions, all of which were hauntingly familiar.  His accents of each country were perfect.  A brilliant raconteur and a very entertaining man.  The vote of thanks was given by Mildred Madanayake.

 

This months’ competition was for a spring flower arrangement and was won by Mildred with Diane Gratwick in second place.

The competition for “A Decorated Umbrella” to be entered in the Cloud Group competition at New Life Church, Congleton on May 1st, was won by our President, Liz Tomlinson.

 

Alice Ball and Margret Dean provided the very welcome refreshments and the first prize of the raffle was very fittingly won by our speaker, Derek.

 

Our new W.I. tablecloth was officially unveiled at this meeting.  It was the “brainchild” of Isobel Worthington who orchestrated the cloth from start to finish involving most of our members who each contributed with some embroidery.

 

More details, with photograph, next month.

 

The tablecloth will be on the President’s table at the Cloud Group meeting on May 1st when we will be entertained by a Jazz Band.

We have our Summer outing in June so the next meeting at Bosley Methodist Chapel will be on July 25th.  For further details please ring 01260-222933.
