CROSS IN HAND WI: Members enjoyed a very interesting and informative talk from Mrs J Ramsey with her wealth of experience and knowledge of buying and selling antiques. We had fun trying to be experts and identify from a selection of items what was the most valuable, least valuable, oldest item and of course the fake. You would not be surprised to know that we got most of the answers wrong which just goes to show how much we think we know but of course how much we don’t.

Two members celebrated birthdays this month, Jean Grafham and Joy Guntrippe and the flower of the month competition was won by Gill Poulton.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, Cross-in-Hand Village Hall at 2pm, when our speaker will be Mrs G Lloyd with a talk entitled Wildlife Photography at Fifty. As always new members and guests are always very welcome.

Finally, a very big thank you to all those who supported us at the recent Cross-in-Hand Fun Day. Our stall, selling homemade cakes, preserves, plants and produce made a good profit for funds as well as being a thoroughly enjoyable day.

For further information or membership enquiries please telephone Anita on 01435 863479 or Margaret on 01435 867076.
