Roddam WI

DREAMING TIME: In the absence of our president, Mrs Mary Mathewson, vice president opened the April meeting of Roddam WI at the Cheviot Centre, Wooler, on April 4, by welcoming 21 members and two guests.

It had been a busy month with visits to the York Quilt Museum, Doddington WI and Glanton WI plus a theatre trip to see ‘I Dreamed a Dream’. Reports were given from each of these and all had been greatly enjoyed.

At the end of the business of the evening, the speaker was Mrs Sandra Gann who spoke with great enthusiasm about the National Parks, mainly in Great Britain, but also with reference to Parks world-wide and there was an accompanying slide show all of which made a very interesting talk. The competition was for a poster advertising the National Parks which were all cleverly done and the winners were: 1 Mrs M Atkinson; 2 Mrs M Mathewson; 3 Mrs V Presland.

The evening ended with supper and the raffle.
