Over Peover WI Report

Home » Newsroom » Over Peover WI Report

The rafters of Over Peover Village Hall rang with the joyful singing of Jerusalem by twenty seven members, one guest and the speaker. Our President June Leach was ably assisted in the business of the day by our secretary Helen Skelton who we were pleased to see back in good health.

The plans for several exciting sightseeing, shopping and theatre trips were discussed as well as one to Chester Cathedral. Julie Haighton, our hard working social secretary filled us in on proposed social events including the AGM and Christmas dinner. A walk around the Lake at Tatton was planned and the inaugural meeting of the new embroidery group.

The President asked Viv Cunningham to give a brief overview of the job of Press officer as she is moving away and needs a successor. Viv also took the opportunity to thank her fellow WI members for their friendship over the last 7 years by singing Cole Porter's "You're The Top". She was presented with the President's table plant and a card signed by the members.

We then enjoyed an impressive demonstration of oil painting. Gill Adlington, who is a member of Warmingham WI, discovered this method of oil painting 16 years ago and enjoys sharing it with others, because she says that it is so "quick and easy". She certainly made it look easy as she built up her composition with layers of colour on the background — finishing with the finer detail. A lovely forest scene developed in front of our eyes — the room was spell-bound. The finished painting was raffled and the lucky winner was Angela Eccles.

Helen Norbury and Bernie Byrne served tea and their wonderfully tasty home-made refreshments. We meet at 7.30pm on the last Thursday of the month at Over Peover Village Hall. There is a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and speakers are invariably of a very high standard as are the home-made cakes and tea to follow. New members are always welcome.
