Lower Withington WI Report


For our February meeting the speaker was Eddie Tarry, Community Engagement Officer for Styal prison, his talk was entitled "living in Styal". We were given an insight in to the running of a women's prison, where the philosophy is Building Hope:Changing Lives. Eddie told us about some of the successes through the recycled lives programme, and how some prisoners have managed to turn their lives around through this scheme. He has also been instrumental in the prison entering Tatton RHS Show winning a silver gilt medal for their garden, and he is hoping for gold eventually. This was an extremely interesting talk and there were plenty of questions for Eddie afterwards.

In other news our Darts team have successfully gone through to the final, and our quiz team put in a valiant effort in the recent heats but unfortunately did not get through to the next round.

Next month's meeting on March 25th is Miss Pitchy Patchy, who will talk about Fashion on the Home Front, and the competition will be a recycled item.

We are planning a coffee morning on the 23rd of May at the village hall, and will be having a stall at the village Rose Day on the 4th of July. We are also busy planning our entries for the Cheshire Show 16th and 17th of June.

Future meetings include Eastern Promise, Congleton Apple Juice project, A Cookery demonstration and a craft evening -- for more information see our  website
