CROSS IN HAND WI: Our meeting this month featured a talk by Paul Woodley from the National Trust about the Life of Rudyard Kipling. Local interest exists as his home, Bateman’s is nearby, at Burwash. We now look forward to the Cross in Hand Fun Day where we will have a stall selling homemade produce, cakes, plants etc tomorrow, Saturday. As this is our WI Centenary year, we shall be celebrating with afternoon tea at the Holy Cross Priory, Cross in Hand on August 14. Birthday flowers were given to Joy Guntrippe, Jean Grafham, Cath Connor, June Davison and Jessie Scott. There was the usual raffle and sales table, followed by tea and cakes.
If you would like to know more, please telephone Joy 01435 812819 or go to www.esfwi.org.uk. We meet every month on the fourth Wednesday in the village hall.
