Northwood W.I. Report

Posted by Admin on Sunday, 1st May 2011, 12:00

President Elisabeth Hamilton welcomed members to the meeting and gave an update on those who are ill.

Several apologies were given and birthday cards distributed.

The next rambleĀ  on 23rd June will be to the Ventnor Botanical Garden to see the W.I.’s Archive Exhibition and a walk round the gardens.

Names were taken for help at the Summer Fair to be held on 16th July.

There will be an outing on the 18th August through the New Forest to Haskins garden and hobby centre near Wimborne.

Competitions results – Best Bloom – Joyce Knight and Scones – Judeth Baker.

Our Speaker Mr Earp gave an excellent talk on The History of Ponds going back to the 1600s. We saw slides of various ponds still here on the Island and others diverted under roads. Interestingly he told us that our water comes from Switzerland to Otterborn, near Winchester then to us.

Thanks were given by Elisabeth and the meeting closed shortly after 4pm.
