Lower Withington WI Report
We discussed the Resolution which will be voted on at the Winsford Annual Council Meeting on 3rd. March. This was agreed by everyone and our delegate Gwen Hayhurst will vote for this resolution.
The speaker for the evening was Richard Eves with Red Carpet Tales. He is a professional toastmaster and is in much demand for weddings. There is much more to the job than just giving a speech and toasting the bride and groom. He liaises with the venue and catering staff, entertainers, photographers and everyone behind the scenes. He makes sure that everything happens at the right time, that guests are looked after and the special day runs without a hitch making it a day to remember.
He also officiates at funerals and corporate and public events. He seemed to be able to turn his hand to anything. We were told a few little tales which usually involved guests behaving badly but all were resolved with diplomacy and tact.
The competition tonight of a wine glass was won by Con Lea with Karen Hilton second. The raffle for A.C.W.W. was won by Sheila Gallimore.
Our next meeting will be on 25th. March at 7.30 at Lr. Withington Parish Room when Judith Townsend will serve us a 3 Course Meal in a Wok. The competition will be a Salt and Pepper Pot.
