Women's Institute

Milverton WI September update

Milverton WI enjoyed a very happy afternoon on 4 August hosted by Diana and Richard Smith. Their garden was looking beautiful despite the drought.

Bridget regaled members with very amusing readings from a Womens’ Institute book ‘By Hook or by Crook – A Century of Autograph Thoughts’. Diana had produced a mind testing quiz on the Royal Family which stretched the memory! To everyone’s amazement Elvis Presley appeared, with shining black hair and dressed in white and strumming a guitar! Members were able to enjoy looking around Richard’s museum absolutely full of an eclectic mix of memorabilia. This was followed by a delicious tea with home made cakes.

The Committee would like to thank the members for a lovely occasion, and particularly Diana for all she did to make it such an enjoyable afternoon. We look forward to our next meeting on 1 September when the speaker will be Sue Greenhow – her subject is ‘Teaching English Abroad – what did she say???’

Meetings are held in the Victoria Rooms and we welcome non members who may wish to join us in the future.
