October 2022 Main Meeting – Gentle Yoga

37 members attended our October meeting. Our President, Melanie, reported that she had made an entry in the WI condolence book for the Queen.

A truly inspiring woman who gave her life to serving this country. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be greatly missed but always remembered with love and affection.

Our sincere condolences to her family.

Melanie Barber, President Whitley WI Cheshire

Helen reminded us that the Queen had herself been an active member of Sandringham WI for almost 80 years.

Our Quiz team took part in the heats of the Cheshire Federation competition, thought they did not get through to the final

Our original speaker had to cancel so Kirsten Flynn, who teaches ‘Gentle Yoga’ locally, stood in at short notice. Members really enjoyed her talk about the origins and types of yoga and how it aids relaxation and well-being. We then all took part in some armchair yoga. It is not often that you can hear a pin drop at our WI meetings, but Kirsten managed this for a few minutes during the relaxation session at the end of her talk! Several members were sufficiently motivated to book on to try one of her classes.

After a reminder of the various group and subgroup activities planned for the next month, we closed the meeting with singing ‘God Save the King’, in recognition of this special month in our history.
