Wellington WI members had plenty to celebrate at their October meeting with two notable achievements to record. A poem by Chris Tron, a member of one of the writing groups, was chosen as the judge’s favourite at the Tone Valley Group of WIs meeting in Wiveliscombe earlier this month and a team from Wellington WI reached the final of the County Fun Quiz earlier this month following simultaneous heats in July in twelve locations across the County. The team was presented with a rose bowl to celebrate their achievement.
With no speaker at this month’s meeting members wrapped and filled 50 shoeboxes with presents for the YMCA Christmas appeal for young people who are unable to live at home. There was also time for them to make miniature Christmas tree decorations from ribbon and beads.
The next meeting will be on Thursday 17 November, 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start at the Beambridge Inn with a talk about the Devon and Somerset Air Ambulance service. Visitors are very welcome.
