Northwood W.I. Report

Posted by Admin on 9 November 2015, 10:47 pm

Report from 5th November 2015
President Mrs Fay Bunday welcomed a much depleted membership to the meeting.  There were 11 apologies.
Fay also welcomed a visitor, Morag Cook and our W.I. Adviser Joan Finch.
Birthdays being celebrated in November are Annie Cooper, Joan Furnell and Denise Hunter.  An update on Joan Furnell and Paddy Hunter were given.
Elisabeth Hamilton gave a report on her visit to Denman College (The W.I. College), which she thoroughly enjoyed and told members it was well worth a visit as there were various courses being held throughout the year.
The Art & Craft afternoon was very well attended and the next one will be on the 19th November.
The Table Top Sale held on the 24th October went off very well and we were supported quite well by the village.
Our Christmas Fair will be on 21st November starting at 2pm.
December’s meeting on the 3rd will be an American Tea and our speaker is Sally Martin doing a Christmas Floral Decoration.
Anne Jonas read the relevant post, Elisabeth gave an update on finances and Mary Chick gave her hall report.
90th Birthday Lunch is being held at The New Holmwood Hotel on the 26th January which is the date Northwood WI was first formed in 1926.
After our break for tea the Annual meeting took place with Joan Finch overseeing the proceedings. The financial statement was read through and as there were no questions this was formally adopted and seconded.  Both the Secretary and President gave their  Annual Statements.
The voting then took place for the committee and as the present committee were willing to stand, with the exception of Colleen Debenham, they were voted en bloc.  Anne Jonas asked for some help doing the Secretarial work as there is rather a lot to do but no one came forward.  Voting for President took place and Fay Bunday was returned as the president.
Competition results:
Pretty Tea Cloth – 1st Josie White and joint second – Fay Bunday, Pauline Pledge and Elisabeth Hamilton.
The Best Garden Bloom was won by Elisabeth Hamilton.
With no other business the meeting closed at 3.45pm.


Best wishes

Anne Jonas
