Thropton WI, July meeting

Thropton WI’s July meeting offered us the temptation of a strawberry and cream tea.

The strawberries and Win Gandy’s shortbread were a distraction that prompted us to deal promptly with the business part of the meeting.

However, we were encouraged to support our first twinning event with Southridge WI from Whitley Bay on August 11, bring more recipes for our 90th birthday recipe book and support the new WI campaign to protect our libraries.

The petition was quickly on its way to being full.

Then the fun began. Members had brought a variety of prose and poems, more or less linked with summer themes, to entertain each other with enthusiasm.

By the end of this amusing interlude, we had certainly earned our summer treat and seconds seemed to be the order of the day.

The next meeting is on Wednesday, September 7. Visitors and new members are always welcome.
