IN January, members met for the ''Christmas Dinner'' at The Boot. The food, presentation and service were excellent and everyone had a lovely evening.

At the February meeting, the minutes were read and approved. Judy Smith and Doreen Baker were wished happy birthdays.

Margaret Humphries reported on the lingerie party at Inkberrow Village Hall, proceeds going to the Rotary Club for the tsunami appeal. This had been organised by Inkberrow WI.

Miriam Tilt and Delice Bayliss had been to a Pudding Day organised by Little Witley WI. More than 100 people had attended but it was definitely not for those on a diet!

The reorganisation of the WI group had been discussed at several meetings and it was put to members that the plan to incorporate Kington with Dormston into the Saltway Group should be tried for a trial period. This was agreed by a majority of members.

Correspondence was dealt with and a board sent round to check names, addresses and birthdays and also for names of those interested in the spring visit on April 20 to Spetchley Gardens with supper.

Speakers Mike and Lena Shepherd have run Flyford Flavell post office for the past seven years. They had known each other since school days and when Mike retired, an aunt suggested they run a shop. They lived in Croydon and after looking all over the south of England, they found Flyford Flavell.

Their day starts at 6.15am with the post and the shop closes at 6pm. They have built up the number of lines and like to cater for individual needs.

In the post office, Lena said being able to do car tax was one of the best things to have happened recently but no luck with passports yet.

They said they have never regretted coming to the village.

Supper was provided by Mary Smith, Judy Smith and Rosemary Smith.

The raffle was won by Judy Smith and Pam Hewitson and the competition - a favourite necklace - by Irene Dalton, Judy Smith and Gill Blackband.

Next month's speaker will be Angela Tidmarsh on tourism. The competition will be for a seascape.
