Renee Wainwright was presented with a plant for her big birthday as she was celebrating and not at W.I. last month.

Cheshire Show entries have to be in by 7th. April and we were encouraged to enter as no entries no show.

The resolution to be debated at the Annual Council Meeting at Winsford was carried unanimously and Gwen Hayhurst will vote for this at the meeting.

Our speaker was Judith Popley with My Life at Granada. She worked there from the early years in the press office and later on the set of documentaries and drama in various roles including continuity. She saw many famous people starting their careers in small roles in various shows and series such as Brideshead with Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons. She also worked with Ken Russell and Melvin Bragg among many others. She explained that what we see is not always as we think i.e. a summer picnic was filmed in freezing cold.

The competition was 70's memorabilia and was won by Sandra Barlow with an Afghan coat.

Our next meeting will be on 23rd. March with the History of Potting by Albrighton Pottery and the competition will be An Interesting Jug.
