A special welcome to visitors Carol Blackwell and Zoe Segmour.

Pauline Kirby reported on the WI National Annual General Meeting, that she attended in Cardiff. One of the speakers, Dame Stella Rimington gave a personal account of some of her experiences before and after joining MI5.

Comments on activities enjoyed in the past month were very positive, i.e. Megan and Harry wedding tea at Lakeside Hotel, supper and kurling with Rookley WI and sales table at Havenstreet Steam Railway.

After tea Dr Ruth Waller took us on a journey through foods eaten by the rich and poor in Tudor times. Examples made by committee members such as white lèche, jumbles, peas pottage and marchpane brought the whole session to life. Did you know that in Tudor times people would not eat tomatoes and distrusted raw fruit?

Competition winners were Ann Parker and Sylvia Burrows respectively for the Best Bloom and a Recipe from the Past.
