A trip to Brick Lane Music Hall Theatre in London started off the month with more than 40 members, partners and friends boarding the coach at Papworth for London. They had a fabulous time with music hall style entertainment, followed by delicious afternoon tea. A most memorable and enjoyable day out.
Choir: Our choir, Lyrical Voices were delighted this year to be invited along to the Eltisley and Croxton Festival on Wednesday 13th July to sing in the marquee set up by the Eltisley WI ladies. It was a very successful evening with the villagers coming along for tea and cake and to listen to our varied programme of music.
Meeting: Despite our speaker for the evening being unable to attend, our programme secretaries thought on their feet as usual and came up with a really enjoyable Beetle Drive followed by a ‘Sitcom Quiz’. The competition was fierce on each table to complete the beetle in the quickest time and the noise and laughter in the room was unbelievable. A great evening was enjoyed by all.
Next Meeting: There will be no meeting in August although we will be enjoying another outing this time by coach to Nottingham for a cruise and lunch on the river trent. This will take place on 11th August and looks to be a great day out.
Our next WI meeting will therefore be on 20th September. Enjoy the summer break!
