Audlem Women's Institute April Meeting – Not to be missed!
Well ladies, here comes April again, and as far as I can see, now that the election looms, the world
has more fools in it than ever!
Personally I do a lot of foolish things, but I always do them with enthusiasm and, let's face it, real friends are those that when you feel you've made a fool of yourself, they don't feel you've done a permanent job!
So what do we have to entice you to attend our next meeting, which, don't forget, will be at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday 2nd April, and for those who see this as a unique opportunity to pop over to the
Lord Combermere afterwards, well good on you, mine's a large white wine!
Firstly, remember the 'Highlight of the Year' news – the announcement of an invitation to a Royal Garden Party at the Palace? Well the lucky selected candidate will be announced at this meeting!
I have heard that the Charity Shop are checking their stock and displaying several donated post -wedding hats, so there will be something to suit all tastes and I would offer to give some etiquette training to the successful lady, however balancing a cup of tea on a special tray, whilst selecting other delicacies off the expected grand spread and balancing on heels on beautifully manicured lawns is not one of my acquired skills – just ask my husband!
To add to all this excitement ' yes, there is even more ' the lucky winner of the 'once every three years opportunity' of a Denman Bursary will also be announced!
I'm pinning my hopes on this one, what with my failures to win any of the monthly competitions so far I feel I'm due some good luck.
We can also anticipate a riveting talk entitled 'Thank you Mr Lever' given by Joan Colwell.
As women, we all know that 'Cleanliness is next to Godliness', and as my idea of housework is to sweep the room with a withering glance, a detailed talk on William Lever, who built Port Sunlight to house his soap factory workers, and who was also a philanthropist with a passion for art and architecture, should be fascinating.
We are hoping that as many members as possible will attend our meeting, and if you would like to come as a visitor, you will be warmly welcomed.
It will come as no surprise, that following this fascinating talk, our monthly competition will be about 'Cleaning Tips', and as this is an area requiring no artistic skills but a huge amount of hands on experience we are hoping to be inundated with entries!
If this wasn't enough, we'll have the usual raffle and birthday flowers, organised by Pat Smith, outings talk by Christine Salisbury, and up to date information and news from our President Lin Nicholas.
We'll look forward to seeing all members next week, new visitors always warmly welcomed, on Thursday 2nd April at the Scout and Guide Hall and remember, the new evening time of 7.30 p.m.
