Dance around the Maypole! If you feel like a jig do, but please no rain dance. Enough is enough!

I know that those of you that came in April enjoyed the talk about the Foundlings. Such a lovely man. 

Four of our members went to Oxfordshire Federation of WIs speakers selection day in Benson. It was a wonderful day with fun, music, and a more serious talk about leprosy.

Ann Prior has agreed to host an ad hoc sub committee for planning our programme for 2025 -26.  Pauline, a brand new member, is helping her. One more person is needed. We also welcome back former member Jan to our WI this month.

Next month we hope to have lots of homegrown cuttings and plants on our sales table, we just need a bit more sunshine and l still live in hope.

Sheila, our oldest member, showed the craft group how to stitch cards last month.  We loved it so much we want to continue next month. Photos will be shown. Thank you, Sheila.

Book Club? I am still hoping that someone who loves reading comes forward to run one.

provided, but small leafed foliage would be very welcome.
The Resolution on Dental Health will also be discussed and voted on, so our delegate, Jenny, from Peachcroft WI can take our votes to the National Federation of WIs meeting in London on 5 June.
