Old Buckenham Women's Institute

Two talks in one month
There were two meetings involving Old Buckenham Women's Institute during September.
On Thursday 17 September it was a Group Meeting when neighbouring WIs get together to share an evening’s entertainment. They had a most enjoyable time watching Rachael Duffield transform herself layer by layer into Queen Elizabeth 1. This was followed by a game of 'Windmill', an Old Buckenham version of Beetle.
On the following Thursday 24 September, the normal monthly meeting involved Rose Marie Stevenson and her husband Paul givng a most interesting talk about The Landmark Trust. This is a British building conservation charity founded in 1965 by Sir John and Lady Smith to rescue buildings of historic interest or architectural merit and make them available for holiday rental. The organisation now owns over two hundred properties and has Prince Charles as their patron. Illustrations of any of the properties were shown, several of which the speakers had spent enjoyable holidays.
The WI will have their Birthday Party in October, the Annual Meeting is in November and during December they will enjoy Christmas lunch at Breckland Lodge.
