Red, white and blue is theme for Lancaster Park WI

THE June meeting of the Lancaster Park WI took the form of a celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

After the evening’s business, a Jubilee quiz, based on the year 1952 and prepared by joint president Pauline Simpson, was attempted by members, some of who were quick to point out that they weren’t even born until after that year.

However, we all now know that Bill and Ben, the Flower Pot Men, and Mr Potato Head each came to light for the first time in 1952. Who knows, this information may be invaluable at some future date. Following the quiz, a group photograph was taken for archive purposes of all attending members, followed by an excellent and delicious pooled supper. The only downside to the evening was the weather, which was torrential.

The next meeting will take place on Thursday, July 5 at Morpeth All Saints’ School, Pinewood Drive, at 7.30pm. This will take the form of a cookery demonstration entitled A Summer Buffet.

New members and visitors are always welcome. Further information can be obtained from Carol Wilkinson on 510933.
