Lower Withington WI Report
The February meeting of Lower Withington WI opened with the singing of Jerusalem, after which our President Ann gave congratulations to Jane on the occasion of her Diamond Wedding Anniversary and a basket to spring flowers were presented to Sue for her upcoming 'big' birthday.
She then went on to welcome our speaker Mary Hignett who is a nationally trained WI judge, whose talk was entitled 'Hints and Tips on Show Work'. To become a judge one of the things she had to do was to provide a portfolio of all the shows she had entered. Mary explained the marking structure and lots of the WI members had made items for Mary to critique on the night. She gave lots of praise and tips on how to improve our bakes and we are pleased to inform you, that there were no 'soggy bottoms'. There was a lop-sided cake and Mary informed us that the oven might be sited unevenly and this could be the reason for this to happen!
The evening finished as usual with our enjoyment of a vast array of refreshments.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 22nd March at 7.30pm at the Village Hall, when it is Members Night. The Committee have a night off and the other WI Members organise the proceedings, which are to be Allie Pottinger with her Water Colour Work Shop. Please come along if you can, to what will be a fascinating and enjoyable evening.
