Little Bollington W.I.


 

The President, Mrs June Tracey greeted the members of Little Bollington WI and reminded them that the Christmas Party had been a great success, with everyone enjoying an amusing talk  by Mr Derek Paulson on regional accents. Everyone had enjoyed the catering by the School cook. All members were appreciative of Colin the caretaker, and also the School facilities. One of our member's , Mrs Jane Moylan had very kindly baked a Christmas cake for everyone, which we had all enjoyed. Members had been for afternoon tea at Arighi Bianchi and afterwards, a tour of the store. This had been very enjoyable. January's speaker was Mr Hooley, who gave an informative talk about "The Royal Yacht Britannia and her Predecessors". His passion in life had been following the Royal Yacht around the country , and he had taken many interesting photographs of the Yacht and the Royal family , which he presented in a slide show. He told members that Queen Victoria had had three Yachts, each one called "Victoria and Albert'! His love of the yacht was apparent and all members enjoyed his interesting and knowledgeable talk.

The next meeting will be on February 8th , when Mr Alan Oatway will speak about " Tibet, Everest and Alpines"
