The year ended with our Christmas dinner at The Royal Oak, which we all enjoyed very much. After the meal we had a quiz which generated a great deal of chatter and debate but it was all great fun.
In January our usual evening meeting was replaced by a Coffee Morning. Members enjoyed a Bring & Buy and a raffle whilst catching up with all the Christmas and New Year news.
The first regular meeting of 2019, in February, saw the return of Simon Le Frenais. Simon had previously spoken to us about Queen Victoria but this time the talk was about a very different Victorian, Robert Fitzroy, Captain of The Beagle.
March sees a change to our published programme. The speaker will be bringing along some owls, which should be interesting. We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm in Kelsall Methodist Church schoolroom. Do come along if you are interested in the WI in general or owls in particular.
Peckforton and Beeston WI
We had a very interesting talk in February given by Mark Powell, an ex-banker / project manager. In 2018 Mark went with a friend, Debbie, to Toungoo in Myanmar (previously known as Burma) for three weeks teaching English to young children in two village schools, and to visit a boarding hostel in the mountains for older school children, funded by a donation that Debbie had helped to raise. Mark explained that in the sixties it was forbidden for anyone to speak English and so a whole generation has lost this skill, hence the need for volunteer teachers. At the end of this subject he also talked about four local charities for whom he collects warm clothing and bedding some of which has been donated by several of our members. On 6th March we will hear about ‘The Science of Chocolate’ from Diana Leitch’ and on 3rd April, ‘Chutney and Cheer’ with Melanie Latham. Margaret Ellis, 01829 261898
