It was a warm evening for our June meeting and after the usual singing of Jerusalem and the reading of the minutes we were reminded about a fund raising fashion show planned for October and the Carol Concert in December.  We have other things to look forward to before the weather starts to get colder as there is a coach trip to Weston Super Mare at the end of June as well as our August outing to Fromebridge Mill where we will enjoy a meal.  Of course there is July in between when the speaker Chris O’Grady will be telling us about A Walk to Rome which sounds intriguing. At this meeting there will be a competition when members submit a photograph and ask the question “Where do you think I am?

Our speaker for the June meeting was Sandra Ashford who had brought along what she called “Objects of Interest”.  Twenty various items were passed around and we had to try and identify them.  Some were very easy and brought back memories for some members but others were more tricky and finally hearing what they were and what they were used for was very informative.   Sandra had worked as a reporter, museum education officer and history teacher which all helped to give a very entertaining talk.

Quedgeley WI meets on the second Wednesday of every month (except August) and always welcomes visitors and new members.  Find us on www.facebook.com/quedgeleywi or contact our President Pat Watts on Gloucester 502252.
