A year's activity for Women's Institute

A busy year for Old Buckenham WI

November was the time for Old Buckenham Women’s Institute to hold their Annual Meeting so that a new committee could be elected to hold office in 2013.
The President and outgoing committee were thanked for all their hard work during the year and secretary Patricia Shearing outlined some of highlights for Old Buckenham WI during 2012.
Looking back over the year it has been a very busy time.
A successful Craft Day was held in March with WI members from around Norfolk joining in to enjoy learning a new craft and chatting over lunch. A ‘Quiz and Chips‘evening was organised for the village Queen’s Jubilee weekend. A hand-made card was sent from Old Buckenham WI to congratulate Her Majesty on her Jubilee and they were delighted to receive a thank you letter from the Palace.
Also fitted into the year were a trip to Wells-next-the-Sea with lunch and a guided walk, the annual Progressive Supper,the get-together with New Costessey WI, the cake stall and dog show at the Village Fete and then the Produce Show which is always the highlight of the year. Add in the scrabble, quizzes, country rambles with pub lunch, darts matches and trips to the theatre, Old Buckenham are a busy group.
The new committee was elected and Susan Hunter agreed to be the President for another year.
After the official business was completed, Nancy Hunt told of her trip to Denman College and showed some of her beautiful silk dyeing work. Several members brought along things they had made at the recent craft day organised by Pulham and District WI and Jean Wade showed a lovely Christmas decoration made at a class she held at the WI County Office in Norwich.
The meeting finished with tea, cakes and a chat.
Members are now looking forward to their Christmas Party being held on Thursday 6 December which they will share with some of their friends and supporters.
