Chadwell- St -Mary WI
President Caryl Taylor welcomed members to our March meeting and a hearty Jerusalem was sung. Speaker for the month Mr Ian Kirby had cancelled at the last minute due to ill health, so a Beetle Drive was arranged for the evening’s entertainment.
This fast moving and often very funny game has in the past created much enjoyment and friendly competitiveness among the ladies – this playoff proved to be just as good. After 12 rounds of frantic dice throwing, moving between teams and some very suspect drawings of beetles, our victorious pair received a well-earned round of applause and prize. Our losers also received their booby prize amidst much heckling and good natured banter.
