JUST a week after its enjoyable post-Christmas dinner at the village’s White Horse Inn, Kings Meaburn WI met again to learn about a project revitalising a small part of Britain’s derelict railway system which is leading to so much more than the reinstatement of track and buildings.
GRACE Sinton welcomed 26 members and one visitor to the meeting of Lazonby WI. The County News was read.
THE title of a talk at Morland and Newby WI meeting was “Stiles, boots and hot brushes”. This turned out to be an entertaining start to the year, as three members recounted their adventures walking some of Britain’s long distance footpaths.
THE Eden Valley Hospice Singers, under leader Janet Clayton, provided a rousing start to Penrith WI’s first meeting of 2012. Fellow members from Plumpton and Stainton, along with several visitors, enjoyed the program of spirituals, melodies from musicals and African songs, interspersed with poetry and a humorous alternative story of the creation.
FOURTEEN members of Sebergham WI eagerly arrived for the February meeting carrying family heirlooms and treasured china for the expert eye of the speaker, Howard Naylor.
WARCOP and Sandford WI president Mrs. Margaret Thomas welcomed members to the February meeting on a very cold night. She introduced Geoff Lines, speaking on the fascinating subject “Alien Plants”. He was a great enthusiast and showed beautiful slides of alien plants, which are defined as plants introduced by man intentionally or unintentionally.
