CROSS IN HAND WI: This month member’s enjoyed a talk by Gilly Halcrow entitled Whatever Happened to Christopher Robin? This was accompanied by a lovely presentation of photographs which bought the whole thing to life. Members were treated to excerpts from some of the well-known poems that Pooh Bear was so famous for saying and relived the tales that gained worldwide fame for A A Milne, made all the more special by the fact that they were based locally in Hartfield and the Ashdown Forest. Birthday flowers were presented to Jean Grafham and Joy Guntrippe and the flower of the month competition was won by Jane Matthews. Due to the redecoration of the village hall, our meeting next month will be held in the Methodist Church Hall at Cross-in-Hand on Wednesday August 23, 2pm. New members and visitors are always welcome. For further information or membership enquiries please telephone Anita: 01435 863479 or Dawn: 01435 868388.
