June 2019

We enjoyed a wonderful Sunday afternoon’s entertainment arranged by our choir, Lyrical Voices, on Sunday 9th June at the Village Hall.  The choir performed several songs and were supported by many local musical artists.  Lovely WI tea and cakes were served during the interval.

Our speaker at our meeting this month was the wonderful Dr Tim Wreghitt who spoke about Building a Stand for Chelsea Flower Show.   Dr Tim is a Consultant Clinical Virologist who walked us through the many stands that he was involved with at Chelsea in conjunction with the Royal College of Pathologists, many of which were awarded silver, silver gilt and gold medals. The themes of the stands were centred around plants and their role in medicine, explaining the link between plants, diseases and remedies. The stands always attracted many celebrities, and was a favourite stop of Her Majesty the Queen. We were all enthralled by Dr Tim and we all left with lots to think about the plants living in our gardens.
