Three of our members were involved, one made apple and mint jelly, whilst the other two presented a superb handwritten, calligraphic version of the hymn Jerusalem, beautifully decorated.
Several outings were discussed and arrangements made, and the menu for the 96th birthday party in May was revealed.
After tea we were given a cookery demonstration by Sue Hollings of Tunbridge Wells WI, featuring Greek food, ie Moussaka, with which we were all familiar, followed by a salad and omelette. Sue had also made a Greek coconut cake especially for us. We all ad a taster of everything so it was probably no dinner tonight. Recipes were handed round so we could try them out at home.
The meeting was closed with a reminder that our next one is on May 1. (Joy Allen).
