To celebrate the new year, the members of Kirkley WI held a Games Evening.
This was a very sociable evening, judging by the noise and laughter from the 20 members present. The games played were bingo and Beetle. Some lucky members gained a small prize.
The competition for A Winter Flower Arrangement In A Tea Cup was won by J Harrison, and the raffle was won by R Creighton. During the business meeting members looked forward to planning meetings and outings, including special events bought by members at the County Auction and events for the year to celebrate the centenary of the national WI.
The treasurer presented the financial report and reminded members that their subscriptions were now due.
It would be necessary to hold a fund-raising event to cover the costs of the 2016 visit from Ballywalter WI. These exchange visits are a long tradition and members look forward to visiting and to hosting members from Ballywalter. At the February meeting, the speaker and demonstrator will be Helen Griersonwith Working With Glass.
