Couple share Brazil adventure

MARGARET and Harry Gilbert took the members of Kirkley WI on an exhilarating journey to Brazil through music and pictures.

Brazil is a vast country so destinations are reached by plane. From Rio to Iguacu and into the jungle with its amazing wildlife, down to the coast and its links with the slave trade and on to the beaches, Brazil is a fascinating country.

The vote of thanks was given by Claire Oliver. Claire also won the competition for a holiday postcard.

Members were reminded that on May 16 it is the Harvesters group meeting at Ponteland. Full details of the July outing would be given at the May meeting when the speaker would talk about Bondagers.

Liz Shaw was co-ordinating the Big Walk, Little Splash activities and Margaret Neil reported on the spring council meeting and pointed out the interesting activities organised for this year. Many of these events are in the newsletter.
