West Tilbury WI: July report
Date posted: 13-07-2012
WEST Tilbury WI invited guests from other institutes to their Seventy First Birthday party this month. The tables were decorated with colourful flowers and foliage and a sumptuous buffet was laid out. The theme was School Days and guests joined in wearing short skirts, pigtails and ties: not forgetting the spots that come with growing up.
President Gill Morris rang the bell and invited Grace Patch to say grace to start our meal.
A big thank you to the two gentlemen that volunteered to wash up.
Our Speaker and entertainer was Brian Carline, Headmaster, Author, Broadcaster and stand up comedian. He gave an amusing insight into his life as a teacher in schools and locations in this country. Votes of thanks were given from Joy Ridgewell and visitor Doreen Kelly. A most entertaining and successful evening.
Raffle: Visitor Lorriane Bromage. Hazel Green, Clare Gale, and Iris Crane, visitors Christine Skinner, Jackie Harrington and Rosemary Bannister won prizes.
Next meeting: Historical Author Elizabeth Lord.
At West Tilbury Village Hall on August 7th at 7pm to 9-30pm
Visitors are welcome.
