Milverton WI met on Thursday 2 February, but with a sadly depleted membership after the deaths of Erica Tucker, Doreen Amery and Wendy Carey-Wood; they have all been enthusiastic and devoted members of our WI and we shall miss them very much. Gilly Goodbody is a loyal member of our WI and we extend our sympathy to her and her family on the loss of her husband Julian.
We were all very moved by the presentation given by Mike Czerniak of the Wellington Street Pastors. He explained how the Pastors work in threes, patrolling and helping where needed, in Wellington on Friday evenings. Their ethos is based on prayer and it is non-judgemental. The crime rate in Wellington has steadily fallen at the weekends which underlines their amazing devotion to reducing violence and uncontrolled behaviour. The Pastors also operate in Taunton and throughout the UK.
Our next meeting is on Thursday 2 March at 2.30 pm in the Victoria Rooms when our speaker will be Frances Vail, past President of our Milverton WI, and current Committee member. Her subject is ‘Something from my Suitcase’. It promises to be very interesting as Frances is a well travelled lady.
Visitors are very welcome.
