Our President Melanie welcomed 35 members and 3 visitors.

We voted on the WI resolutions. Members were then informed of upcoming events, including a Birthday afternoon tea party, a May day outing, a holiday to Bletchley Park and Cambridge, an evening with comedian Jamie Sutherland, a couple of events learning new crafts and the group Spring lunch.

The sub-group leads informed us what was happening in their sub-group and what they were doing to prepare for entries to the Cheshire Show.

Jonty told us about Project Linus, a UK charity with provides new, handmade, washable blankets to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children, who are sick, disabled, disadvantaged or distressed
