MEMBERS started their Christmas celebrations with an excellent lunch at the Flower Pot in Aston.
A blazing log fire, paper hats and cracker jokes put everyone in the mood for a very happy day.
At the January meeting members considered the shortlist of resolutions being submitted for the annual meeting and then voted individually on the one they would most like to see go forward to the national federation’s annual meeting.
The speaker for the January meeting was Jan Guiver, the Berkshire link for the Associated Country Women of the World.
She told members how the ACWW was established in the early 1900s and how the WI came under the umbrella of the organisation, working on help and support for women all over the world.
The WI raises money for ACWW through the Pennies for Friendship scheme and supports many small projects improving women’s lives.
It was a very interesting and informative afternoon.
