Lower Withington WI Report
Thanks were given to the Cheshire Show team for all their hard work and those who entered individually. Out of ten trophies to be won we came away with four of them.
Thanks to Jennifer Taylor for using part of her Bursary to fund the Willow Weaving Day which was a great success.
Our speaker for the Peak Search and Rescue team could not be with us as he was out on a big rescue mission involving casualties at that moment. In his place with thirty minutes notice came Matt and Richard the latter being the Chairman with 30 years service.
Matt who gave the talk is an NHS doctor and is an anaesthetist and has also worked on the Air Ambulance. We were told how Mountain Search and Rescue came into being when a number of scouts died in 1963.
There had only been the Police before that. Since then a huge network of volunteers from all walks of life give their time and experience to rescuing people and animals from had to reach areas of Britain. They go through a lot of training and someone is on call at all times and Matt said members of the team have had to leave their Christmas dinner on occasion. It is totally without government funding. It was a hugely interesting talk and certainly opened our eyes to just what is involved.
Our next meeting will be on 28th. September when Gay Rhodes will give a talk entitled "That Certain Age". The competition will be a Childhood Photo of You.
