Minchinhampton W.I. - October 2017

There was a very good attendance at this meeting which was pleasing. The meeting began with a summary of matters arising from the last meeting which was duly approved and signed. A list of correspondence was read out from GFWI and members were encouraged to obtain further details from the information sheets that had been set out by the president in the library. Venues were organised for the forthcoming meetings for scrabble and craft. Our guest speakers for this meeting were 3 firefighters from the Stroud brigade who spoke about fire alarms and fire safety in the home. The talk was very informative and much appreciated by the members. Many of our members were keen to sign up at the end of the talk for a free fire safety inspection of their homes by the firefighters. The vote of thanks was given by Avril.
The next meeting at Minchinhampton library will be on Wednesday 4th October. The guest speaker will be Camilla Monk who will speak about Belgian refugees in World War 1.
