Well, hello again, it’s finally arrived the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, as featured on the front page of the WI magazine. You do read it all don’t you, delivered to you by our helpful volunteer members?
Several committee members are currently busy preparing a WI table at Rye Farm Meadow on Thursday 2 June. No rain please!!
We had two visitors at the May meeting and we hope they will join us for the June celebration.
By the way has anyone tasted or made the Platinum Trifle yet? It looks so yummy.
Hopefully you find it useful to have the minutes of the previous meeting emailed to you? That way you can catch up if you missed it.
Judy, our new treasurer, Hilary and myself are making the first steps towards internet banking etc. In time it will make payments in and out easier for us all.
Moira has kindly offered to be our Welfare Officer. We do want to know if anyone is sick or needs a friendly ear.
Sunday 5 June Coffee club meets in Coffee Aroma (High Street, Abingdon) at 2pm. Just drop in as and when.
11 – 16 July ‘Calendar Girls the Musical’ at the Oxford Playhouse.
Tuesday 14 June We will be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee with a jam jar flower workshop, followed by a tea party and quiz. Please bring a jam jar or can. Flowers and some greenery will be provided, but extra green plant material would be great.
Hilary, fresh back from Liverpool, will tell us all about the National WI’s annual meeting. I will bring the long lost Millennium Hanging made 20 years ago by Abingdon Fitzharrys WI members.
Tuesday 12 July At our July monthly meeting we have highly recommended speaker Andy Kempe. His talk entitled “The curious case of Greenham Common’’ sounds like an Agatha Christie mystery. Come and find out.
Wednesday 20 July I will host a garden party here in my wild but colourful garden in Radley. I might do a sunny day dance?
Tuesday 16 August Our annual outing. Moira has arranged for a guided tour of Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, starting at approximately 11 am. We are so lucky to live so close to all this history and have the opportunities that we have. I do hope many of you will want to come to this. More information in July.
Meanwhile All the best Trine
