At the Meeting held on Wednesday 6th July. Diana De La Rue took the meeting as President Anne Frampton was unwell, two new members were then presented with their new members welcome packs.

We were then introduced to our Speaker, Mrs Shirely Purviss, from the ‘Devon County History Society’, and given a most interesting talk on all aspects of her work with the society. We then had questions from the floor, which developed into a very lively discussion on many aspects of History. The vote of thanks was given by Mrs Jo Cotton.

Members were reminded to bring a plate of savoury food for the supper on Wed 13th, and also to bring something suitable to sell on the bring and buy stall. Names were taken for helpers and cakes for the ‘Furry Dance Teas’.

The Litter Pick will be on Thurs 21st July weather permitting, there is no WI meeting in August. The next Meeting will be on September 7th, when our speaker will be Mr Roger Lacey, with a talk on ‘Beekeeping and the environment’.
