February means it’s the Birthday Supper and this year we celebrated our 95 th as Quedgeley WI. We always look forward to the lovely food that is prepared by our members but we have to wait while we go through our usual business. After welcoming two visitors and a new member we were reminded to check that our birth dates had been recorded so that any “special” ones are not missed. This month’s competition was a handmade craft item of our choice and there was a varied selection of different crafts for members to judge, with a coin placed by their favourite. Competitions are held several times a year and the 2019 winners were announced and a trophy and cash prizes presented during the evening. We are still looking for members to join our skittles team and volunteers were requested for the Marie Curie Daffodil collection at the end of March to be held at our local Tesco. Volunteers were also needed to help at the Three Counties Show as it is Gloucestershire’s turn to run the refreshment tent. There was a coffee morning arranged for February at The Roastery and we will be holding a fund raising afternoon in aid of the Cobalt Breast Screening Nurses Fund at Quedgeley Village Hall on Saturday 4th April between 2-4 where we will be serving tea or coffee and cake. There will be a charge of £2.50 and also a raffle and book and jigsaw stall. We are planning a coach trip in June with one suggestion of Highclere Castle of Downton Abbey fame but other suggestions may come in before then. We will be doing our yearly fund raising at Rikenal Car Park one Saturday in August and September we will be attending the Robinswood Group Party at Hardwicke Village Hall where the theme is a Victory in Europe street party with music and food of the 1940s. After hearing all the business we finally enjoyed the Birthday Supper consisting of lovely one pot meals with crusty bread, the usual naughty but nice puddings made by some of our members and wine and non-alcoholic drinks. Our speaker for March will be Glenn Salter on the research and plot of a novel which is sure to be interesting
