Swans WI Meeting, April 2018

The April 2018 Meeting Of Swans WI (formerly South Newton, Wishford & Stapleford Women's Institute):

Snow last month meant our March (2018) meeting was cancelled, so our A.G.M. was held in April. A large number of members were present with plenty of interest shown at the Trading, and Book Tables, as well as in the entries for the competitions. Sue brought along her handmade jewellery which made a lovely display, several ladies buying pieces, with a percentage going to our funds. 

After the business was attended to we moved on to the Annual Reports, and the trophy and cup for the competition were presented. It is always good to look back over the year's events. We have had a busy and fulfilling time, the high spot being our 90th birthday party. There were two resignations - our Treasurer, Marian, who has been meticulous in carrying out her duties (always with a smile). We very much appreciate all her efforts on our behalf. Pam, our President, also stood down after three years in the job. Pam has been very hard working, energetic, enthusiastic, and full of ideas and inspiration. We welcomed new members to the Committee and then had some fun with an excellent quiz before doing justice to a tea of traditional W.I. standard, i.e. large and scrummy! So on we go, with another years interesting events and meetings planned in the company of good friends, old and new. 

Our next meeting is on 3rd May 2018, 2.00 p.m., at South Newton Village Hall, when we shall discuss this year's Resolution, followed by a game, and another delicious tea of course. 

We have a lively scrabble group (Pam won the "Scrabble Day" in March). 

Our Walking Group meets once a month, as does the Creative Group.
