Mini SHOW - The resolutions meeting gave members of Simonstone with Read WI the chance to discuss and vote on the two resolutions going forward to the AGM in Liverpool on June 8th. The first, to maintain support for local libraries was presented by Hilary Clarkson. The second, to withhold permissiion for megafarms, was presented by Anne Atkinson. Both were upheld.

Another aspect of the evening was the mini show which had five categories of craft work. On display were selections of knitting, embroidery, greetings cards, stuffed toys and an original drawing. Mrs Maureen Bowe was welcomed to judge the entries. Mrs Cynthia Carter’s knitted dress was judged best in show.

The packed evening finished with a topical quiz “Name the Royal Bride”, which was won by Angela Sutcliffe and Margaret Sutcliffe. Both are now proud owners of a CD of the Royal wedding music.

Members are looking foward to a trip to Chatsworth House next Thursday.

The next WI meeting will be on June 16th when the speaker will be Mrs Anne Sandwell who will be giving a talk about patchwork.
