PRESIDENT – Mrs Fay Bunday welcomed members and visitors to the Christmas meeting.
APOLOGIES – Were given from Denise Hunter, Joan Furnell, Mary White, Paddy Hunter, Colleen Debenham, Denise Williams and Wendy Hume
VISITORS – Were –  Sheila Chaplow and Morag Cook
UPDATE ON MEMBERS – Unfortunately Joan Furnell has had another stroke, which has set her back quite a lot.  Mary Wight is now living in Cherry Trees Care Home as she can no longer live at Abbeyfields and Paddy Hunter is not at all well and is in a lot of pain. Denise is having to have more treatment on her legs.
BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS – This month on the 5th is Pauline Pledge and a card was presented to her.
CHRISTMAS FAIR – 21st November – This was not very well attended.  Elisabeth will give the profit in her report.
ART & CRAFT – The next one will be on January 21st at 2pm in the hall.
JUMBLE SALE – Is being held on the 23rd January.
BIRTHDAY LUNCH – On 26th January is our 90th Birthday Lunch. Our Lunch is being held at the Holmwood Hotel on the actual date Northwood WI was first formed.
SECRETARY – Anne Jonas read out the relevant mail and as there were so few people at November’s meeting, Anne also read that mail as well.
TREASURER – Elisabeth Hamilton gave the profit on the Christmas Fair which was £133. 15p.  Two Clangers that didn’t sell at the Fair were sold at the meeting making another £6 to go towards  the total.
HALL REPORT – Mary Chick said that bookings were going well and that a number of bookings for 2016 had come in.
The rambles will start again in March (weather permitting) ending with a pub lunch.  Anyone who cannot do the walks if they like, can meet up with the ramblers at the chosen pub.
Hopefully there will be an outing this next year, suggestions were Hever Castle and Chichester Canal.  A decision will be taken next year.
We then had a break for tea which was an American tea.  There was a lovely selection of food members had brought in.  There was also Apple and Orange Fruit Juices and Sherry for members to enjoy throughout the afternoon. Not sure if any ladies went home merry!!! Joyce Mace and Judie Medway-Gash volunteered to do the washing up.
Competition Results – There were no entries for the Best Garden Bloom and only one entry for the Mince Pies which were brought in by June Thistlewood, so obviously June came 1st!!!
After Tea, Sally Martin gave a demonstration of 2 Christmas Floral Decorations.  They were lovely and Sally made it look so easy to do.  These were raffled off at the end of the afternoon. The vote of thanks was given by Judeth Baker.
Our next meeting will be on 7th January.  Our speaker is Janet Price and the subject is “My Life with a Guide Dog”.  Competitions are for a Pretty Scarf and Best Garden Bloom.
Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas, Fay Bunday closed the meeting at 4pm.
