Minchinhampton W.I. - January 2020
After a very successful Carol Service held at the Parish Church on Tuesday 3 December members met the next day for the final meeting of the year.
Our speaker, Mr Stephen Rowley, was then introduced and he made an impressive entrance as he was wearing a wonderfully coloured ragged coat and black curly brimmed hat and calling out a Mummers greeting. We were then given a display of pictures showing the various members of a Mummers Group and having the history explained. It is good to know that the old traditions are still upheld.
A vote of thanks was given and we then enjoyed chatting together over tea and mince pies.
We shall be meeting again on Wednesday 8 January (a week later than usual). Visitors/new members are always welcome to our meetings held on the first Wednesday of the month in the Library at 2pm.
