Oakridge WI's joyous evening with Carole and Malcolm Brown

WHAT a pity that our meeting on September 13 was so poorly attended, I hate to tell you this girls but you missed an absolute treat!

After the business of the meeting was conducted in the usual swift and concise way, we were delighted to welcome Carole and Malcolm Brown, accompanied on CD by Martin Dack.

Forgive me if I just say 'Wow!'

Such a special evening, a super programme, the piano playing was a joy, as was the singing.

Since we were such a selected group it was like our very own soiree.

Back to the business, members who had attended the night out at the Vineyard, said it was lovely.

Our stall at the Village Fete, raised £295.

We were so pleased to contribute a good percentage to the Fete's Charity, but very disappointed that no one else in the village had made a cake for our stall just our loyal members, you will remember that no one else was able to run a cake stall so we combined it with our usual popular Jams, Preserves, and Chutneys.

Bizzie, reminded us about the Village Remembrance Weekend on November 10 - 11 in the village hall when we remember the end of the World War I.

The History Group will put on a display, and various other groups will help to make this a a very special weekend.

See posters and What's On for further details and times.
