PEACEHAVEN WI: President, Diane Salter, welcomed members to the April meeting at the Meridian centre, and after the minutes of the last meeting were read and agreed by everyone, she gave us suggestions for next years holiday, to be considered in due course.

A detailed report was read on the Annual Meeting of the East Sussex Federation held at the Hastings Centre on March 21. It was the first time we had made the journey to Hastings, but next year we hope to return to the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne, which has been closed for refurbishment.

Speaker for the afternoon was David Fitton who gave us a talk on gardening, with slides showing some of the beautiful gardens around the country. Mr Fitton was, he explained, a student at Wisley, which began a long career involved in all aspects of plants and flowers and at present is doing some work for Paradise Park in Newhaven. (Joy Allen).
