Upton St Leonards WI enjoy a beetle drive

PRESIDENT Lynne welcomed all ladies and read the minutes of the previous meeting.

We received a thank you letter from the secretary of SS Great Britain Society, also asking for volunteers to help at the Bristol based museum.

Our summer outing on July 9 takes us to see Brunel's masterpiece.

On Friday, June 21, Angela is hosting another strawberry tea in her garden on Upton Hill.

The lunch club meet at Rose Tree Farm Kingsway on March 19.

A reminder about Upton Spring Show on March 30, where our entry is a knitted garment to be donated to Eastwood Park mother and baby centre.

Schedules available from the village shop.

Reminders also about our visit to Kew Gardens, Judy's workshop and the AGM in Cheltenham.

On October 5, we are holding a fund raising evening with the Gloucester Ukelele Band, tickets available soon.

A Christmas Lunch at Highgrove is also being planned.

A evening of fun followed when we played Beetle, followed by a quiz.

Hilarity from the start with shouts of laughter followed by a call “beetle” had us in uproar.

Some serious players were on board moving around the room, others just staying put.

The quiz, set by Helen, got our thinking caps on with some difficult questions and some partial adverts to identify.

Sharing good company, fun and conversation is what the WI is all about.

We meet again on Monday, April 1, at 7.30pm when our speaker Mike Bottomley will give us a talk on Katherine Parr, last wife of Henry VIII.
