A full and active year
The Annual Meeting on Thursday 27 November of Old Buckenham WI was the usual mix of social time and business. Susan Hunter, the President, gave a warm welcome to everyone including a new member and the adviser from the Norfolk Federation Office, Sue Ovenden.
The accounts were presented to members by the Treasurer, the Committee for 2015 voted for and the current President, Susan Hunter, was re-elected for another year.
The activities and achievements over the last twelve months were outlined by both the Secretary and the President and these included organising a spring quiz in the Village Hall, running the annual Craft and Produce Show, supporting the village Fete, and this year, buying a replacement radio-controlled clock for the Village Hall. Old Buckenham WI had also competed in WI darts matches, Scrabble competitions and won the County annual quiz. Their monthly meetings had covered a range of topics from humorous to serious, there were monthly walks and Scrabble matches, an annual visit to the Theatre Royal and a summer outing.
After the serious business was finished everyone relaxed with refreshments before taking their places for a game of Beetle which this year was won by the latest member, Joyce Andersen.
The year will finish with an early Christmas lunch when members can enjoy good food and good company. A fitting start to the festive season.
