Milverton, Somerset

Women’s Institute April update

We are deeply saddened by the death of Ian Ainsworth-Smith. We extend our loving sympathy to Jean, our enthusiastic and supportive Vice President, and also to their twin sons. Milverton WI has been unable to meet, however members have kept in touch particularly via the Book Group – plenty of time for reading!

Milverton WI was one of the Somerset groups who delivered a large quantity of home made cakes to the NHS staff at Musgrove Park Hospital during the first lockdown. In recognition, and as a ‘thank you’, a bakery in Bruton, frequented by a member from a Somerset WI group, kindly donated 16 kilograms of self raising flour! It’s been distributed to those members who participated, and to the Milverton Community Café so that it can be used by a wider group of Milverton residents. We all hope that life will return to a more normal rhythm in the summer. Meanwhile, as always, a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to the kindness of Milverton and to the efficient and caring NHS, volunteers, scientists and all who are associated with the vaccine rollout – truly awesome Happy Easter! Stay safe and well.
