Lower Withington WI Report
Judith Adshead gave a report on Cheshire Show. Lr. Withington have once again done extremely well. We have won cups for Combined Class 1, Flowers Class 6 and the Middlewich Cup for the most points in staging and interpretation for Class 1 where we obtained 159 points out of 160 the first for any W.I.
Ann Daughtrey and Gwen Hayhurst had first for quilts and Ann Hornby a second. Jennifer Taylor first for beading and Karen Hilton a second. Wendy Edmonds a first and third for flowers. Judith Adshead a second for cookery. Dorothy Monks won a first and two thirds in the NAFAS exhibits.
Pauline Kennerley had a big birthday and was presented with a lovely plant.
Jane Budenburg gave a report on the AGM at Leeds which she obviously thoroughly enjoyed despite the awful weather and encouraged us to try it, Jane obviously will.
The speaker for the evening was Zoe from Sainsbury's with a demonstration of cookery. She cooked four dishes single handed with enough to feed us and our visitors. There were lots of little tips throughout the demonstration which was expertly done and the food was delicious. There was an extra treat at the end as Zoe had brought with her a chocolate tray bake which was to die for to eat with our tea and biscuits. The first prize of an old cookery book was Irene Willett.
Our next meeting is on 23rd. July when Nick Bianchi will talk about the History of Arighi Bianchi. The competition will be something about Macclesfield. Visitors are welcome, the meeting starts at 7.30 in the Parish Room.
