WI Charlton Down

April 2019 Meeting

This month Charlton Down WI held its AGM.  The Secretary’s Annual Report and the Treasurer’s Report and Budget for 2019/20 were approved unanimously.

Brenda Down, our President, gave her annual address, thanking members of the committee for their efforts and support over the past year.  Our Vice President, Pat Bywaters, is standing down after serving 5 years on the committee and Gillian Lucas is also standing down from the committee.  Brenda also thanked all the members who have helped at meetings and assisted with arranging events – making this another successful and enjoyable year.

The following new Committee was duly elected:

  • President:                  Brenda Down
  • Secretary:                  Lesley Elins
  • Treasurer:                  Julie Blackwell
  • Events Organiser:    Susan Mills
  • Committee Member: Lynda Kiss

We also had a very interesting talk by our local Police Community Support Officer.  The topic was security with aim of preventing our members becoming victims of crime, both online and through other fraudulent scams.  Following the presentation, members were able to collect information to take away for further reading.

This was followed by an enjoyable finger buffet lunch.

The next monthly meeting is on 1st May in Watts Room, Herrison Hall at 10am.  The topic will be paper making with a demonstration and chance to have a try yourself.
