MEMBERS of Morpeth Lancaster Park WI recently spent an enjoyable evening at the Wansbeck Group Meeting, being hosted this year by Longhorsley WI.

With the 2012 Olympics fast approaching, Longhorsley members had organised their own version of this competition, under the title of Longhorsley ‘Lympics 2012 and requested each WI branch within the group to enter a team of five players.

Various events proceeded, a couple of examples being Javelin (Darts) and Discus (Tiddly Winks), causing much hilarity.

When all points had been counted and verified, the Lancaster Park team were bronze medallists. Gold and Silver positions went to Pegswood with Bothal and Cambo respectively.

A pooled supper was provided and all agreed the evening had been a great success.

Thank you Longhorsley.

The next Lancaster Park meeting will take place on Thursday, April 5 at Morpeth All Saints School, Pinewood Drive at 7.30 pm. New members and visitors are always welcome.
