Always a popular event, the AGM marks the end of the WI calendar of meetings and for the second time Wilmslow Golf club was the selected venue.
Members enjoyed a drink on arrival and after some pre-dinner mingling, they took their places around the very large beautifully laid table.
After singing Jerusalem, President June Leach ran through the business items, thanking various members for their valuable contribution. She then invited the Treasurer, Rosalind Jackson, to run through the accounts. Julie Haighton reminded members of the upcoming events and then Secretary Helen Skelton gave an amusing review of the year's activities, reminding us of the various speakers, meetings, and events that we had enjoyed through 2019. It had been a busy year!
The committee member numbers had swelled, as people were keen to get involved and volunteers were secured for providing refreshments at each of the 2020 monthly meetings – a vital part of any WI get together.
With business complete, members enjoyed chatting over a delicious three course meal which ended with a raffle. Prizes included wine, chocolates, flowers and even a Christmas cookbook which caused a few giggles.
All in all, it had been a splendid evening; good food, excellent company and great venue. A super start to the festive season.
If you are interested in joining us, look out for the notices and come along to the Village Hall, last Thursday in the month at 7.30pm. It's a wonderful way to meet local ladies. You can be sure of a warm welcome.
