Creekside’s Report for July
Members and visitors were welcomed with a special mention for Sue Hayward and Michelle Rulton.
A 'Special Birthday' buttonhole, created by Marlene Cassidy for Wendy Mitchell would be delivered to her.
Michelle Rulton gave a report from the annual meeting of the National Federation of WI's held in Liverpool. Two Resolutions were accepted, 'Alleviating Loneliness' and 'Plastic Soup: Keep Microplastic Fibres out of our Oceans'.
Opinions were invited about our trip to Wisley Gardens, our stall at The County Show, a Kurling evening with Rookley WI, Tea with Emsworth WI and a visit to 'The Girls' at The Phoenix theatre in London. All these activities had taken place since our last meeting.
The Best Bloom Competition was won by Jenny Gaches and the Speaker Related Competition was won by Susan Phillips.
Simone Rose accompanied by a colleague from the County Press gave an extremely informative and interesting talk about Advertising and Its Importance, prompting discussion about why advertising is so important, digital advertising, the use of colour, pricing and how to create the perfect advert. The session concluded with an invitation for members to enter a competition to create an advert which would attract new members to Creekside W.I.
Meetings are held at 7.15pm on the 2nd Wednesday of every month, visitors and new members are very welcome.
