President Joan Lucas welcomed 23 members and one visitor to the July meeting which was held in the Community Hall on Tuesday, July 18. After apologies, first on the agenda in the business part of the meeting was a letter from Dot Wigg thanking the group for the contribution to her book of poetry, presented to her at the end of her term of office as County Chairman. The report from the AGM in Cardiff was read and then a discussion was held regarding members having to pay extra subscriptions to cover the cost of the new magazine Women's Institute Life. This is to replace the Home and Country magazine which members choose to buy and, a number of members were not happy about having no choice so a letter is being written to voice their opinions. The speaker was Barbara Lovejoy who gave a wonderful talk called Lace a la Mode and to accompany this she had slides of pictures from the 1600s right through to the 1920s. She was thanked by Joan Lucas. During refreshments there was a media quiz to do, thanks to Janet and Joyce. The winner of this month's competition which was A piece of lace was Judie Battens. Raffle prizes were won by Ivy Stevens and Sheila Evans. Next meeting is Tuesday, August 15 and the speaker is Joyce Parkinson, Graphology - Handwriting Analysis. Visitors are welcome.
