Business and bees at the WI

WI Annual Meeting

November was the month at Old Buckenham Women’s Institute for the formal business of the Annual Meeting. Although essential business is kept to a minimum it was good to hear a review of the past year's activities. It makes one realise how active the village WI is - taking part in darts and scrabble tournaments, competing in the annual Cator Cup Competition, supporting village events and staging the village produce show to mention just a few.
The new committee was approved by the meeting and the President, Susan Hunter, was re-elected for 2010. This was followed by an interesting and amusing report from Nancy Hunt about the London visit to the Science Museum and more especially the Law Courts
After tea and refreshments, members played a hilarious game of 'Bee' which was
based on the normal game of 'Beetle' but, this being 'The Year of the Bee', rather more topical.
There is no normal meeting in December as it is Christmas Party time.
At the meeting on Thursday 28 January a cognitive behaviour therapist, Brenda Bingham, will be talking about some of the aspects of her work and the competition is for a photo 'Snow in Old Buckenham’.
