ON a bitterly cold evening members enjoyed a return visit from Mrs Christine Seal, this time to show some of her beautiful Celtic appliqu and stained glass patchwork. Her designs are based on anything from medieval manuscripts to modern Christmas cards, and each piece is unique.

Members were later to learn that Pam Close had passed away on that same evening. This was very sad news for all, she had been a WI member for around 30 years, and will be greatly missed.

Next Thursday members will be doing the annual village spring-clean. Details from Margot Dryden on 772721.

Next meeting to be held next Tuesday when Mrs Janet Bollington talks about donkeys, 7.30pm in the village hall. Visitors most welcome.
