CROSS IN HAND WI: Members enjoyed an informative talk from Kevin Palmer from Collective Legal Solutions, entitled Tax, Care and Toy Boys. This thought provoking talk generated lots of lively interaction and questioning and left us all realizing the importance of making sure our arrangements are correctly in place to ensure those that we want to benefit actually do. It is always exciting to welcome new members to our WI and we are very lucky to have the pleasure of welcoming five new members in the past two months. That said, there is always room for plenty more, so why not give it a go? We meet on the fourth Wednesday in the month at Cross-in-Hand Village Hall at 2pm. Look out for our posters around the town advertising details of each meeting. If you can’t wait until then, why not join us for a coffee morning today, Friday, 10.30am at The Bay Tree Café, the chance for an informal chat, coffee and friendship.

Several members celebrated their birthdays this month. They were Dawn Brock, Maragret Ivey, Heather Stevens and Helen Whiteman. The Flower of the Month competition was won by Sheila Leswell.
