Aston & District W.I August 2018 Report
Our President Jenny Bourne welcomed members and guests to our August Social Evening.
Firstly, our President thanked all members who contributed to and helped with our three entries for the Nantwich Show. She congratulated them all for gaining a 1st, which also won 'Best in Show' in the Co-operative Section and a 3rd.
This evening our business was kept to a minimum so that we could all enjoy a Game of Skittles. All our classes were continuing as usual throughout August.
The Luncheon Club will be meeting at the Bickerton Poacher on 7th August — 12.00 noon for 12.30 pm.
Our walkers are meeting at 'The Castle' in Ludlow on 22nd August at 11.30 am.
This month we had a very friendly and enjoyable evening playing skittles. Four teams played against each other and the Blue team won by just one point. Our overall winner was Mrs Irene Williamson. We followed this with a supper of fish and chips then a welcome cup of tea and piece of cake.
Our competition this month was the President's Choice which was "How many 2p coins in your purse". This was won by Mrs Rose Lomas, whose purse contained fourteen!

I found this male sparrowhawk devouring a pigeon in our Audlem garden. He was so unconcerned by my presence that I was able to go back into the house to get my camera and then take many photographs from only about three metres away. I eventually left him to finish his meal. All that was visible later were the pigeon's legs and claws. A male sparrowhawk, I'm presuming to be the same one...
