Box W.I. - March 2017

At our first meeting of the year in January, we were given a Hands-on Quiz by Sandra Ashenford. We all sat around in a circle, passing around a wide range of objects for us to identify which was very interesting and great fun – some were relatively easy, but a few only identified by some of our more knowledgeable members!

At this meeting, we also had to have a quick discussion on 6 resolutions from the original 85 submitted by the National Membership. We then had to vote for one resolution to be discussed at the annual meeting in June. It was decided by a majority to select “Equal access for all who need specialised maternal, mental health services” I would like to thank Germaine Ballinger for ably leading our discussion.

Our next meeting on March 14th is a Talk and Sausage Tasting by Joe from Taylor’s Butchers.

Meetings at Box Village Hall are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 10am business, coffee at 10.30am followed by a speaker. Visitors are warmly welcomed at 10.30am - £3 including coffee.
