Lower Withington WI Report
Lower Withington Report 26th. Feb 2014
Quite a busy meeting and a good turn out of members. We were reminded that Cheshire Show is on the horizon and asked to put in lots of entries.
Our speaker for the evening was Annie Birtwell who worked for the BBC and is a freelance journalist. She became aware of the work done in Borneo at Sepilok for the orphaned Orangutans about fifteen years ago and since then has spent a lot of time each year helping to care for and rehabilitate the babies. They are looked after by volunteers from when they arrive as traumatized babies to their release when they are about five back into the rain forest. Much of their habitat has been destroyed and is now palm oil plantations and many adults are killed. The centre also cares for Sun Bears in much the same way. Members were asked to bring any old towels which Annie is going to take with her on her next trip as they are used as hammocks for the babies.
The competition for a bear was won by new member Karen Hilton.
The next meeting is on 26th. March at 7.30 and Keith Yearsley MBE will give a talk entitles A Life of Music. The competition will be an old record cover. Visitors are welcome.
