Members and their interests
The February meeting of Old Buckenham WI took the form of a members’ evening. At the start of the evening John Fernihough told members of the plans for the future management of the Village Green and members were given the opportunity to ask questions and take part in a general discussion about its future.
Members had been asked to bring along a favourite book and to explain the reason for their choice. Favourite authors included Charles Dickens (from the past) to the more modern authors like Ian Rankin, Robert Harris, Victoria Hislop and Antoine Laurin. The highlight of the evening was Pauline Bartlett’s choice of a children’s book which led her to tell members about the recent escapade of a “lost sheep” called “Basil” in the village which caused considerable amusement.
The evening also included an exhibition of members’ craft skills including sugar craft, needlepoint, blackwork, hardanger, patchwork, painting and quilting.
The April meeting will be held in Old Buckenham Village Hall on Thursday 27 April when the speaker will be Kathy Denton and the subject of her talk will be ‘A London Fashion House’.
