Acklington WI, March meeting

There was no business meeting this month as members celebrated their 92nd birthday with a meal out at The Old Storehouse at Amble.

The majority of members were able to attend and The Old Storehouse really excelled with their layout of the tables, hospitality and food.

As usual, there was a lot of chatting going on and the members certainly enjoyed themselves.

After everyone had finished their meals, it was time for the distribution of mystery birthday presents each member had purchased and wrapped beautifully.

Considering the maximum anyone was advised to pay was £4, there were some really nice gifts.

The secretary and president ensured that no-one received the gift they had brought with them.

It was a really happy Institute that left that evening, still chatting away.

The next meeting is on Tuesday, April 8, at 7.15pm in Acklington Village Hall and the speaker will be Ailsa Standring talking about Chocoholics. The competition is for a decorated egg.
