January Meeting 2016

 

Our January meeting began with our new President and Secretary sitting at the top table sporting L plates. By the end of a very successful evening, these could be safely dispensed with.

Business was kept to a minimum with the aid of information boards on each table.

Birthday buttonholes, beautifully made by our hostesses of the…

December Meeting

Christmas came early to the Stradbroke WI as the members gathered in their finery to enjoy the   Christmas supper.

All were welcomed to the evening by Gill Bird our newly elected President who had also been the main architect…

Howard Family

My great grandfather, Henry Howard (Oct. 4, 1852 to Nov. 17, 1908) lived in Stradbroke. He was the son of Henry and Sarah Howard and also a twin to John Howard. Henry married Kate Meen on Oct. 4, 1877 in Stradbroke. Together they had 13 children. In approximately 1910 Kate Howard and three of her sons (Herbert, William and Percy) moved to Canada. Also, their daughters, Kate and Margaret; and one son, Harry moved to Canada at different times. Three of the thirteen children died and I believe…

Annual Meeting

The Annual Meeting, not usually the most eagerly awaited in our calendar, was rather special this year, as our Secretary Dianne Maynard had the brilliant idea that everyone should wear a hat. Her wish was granted, and members arrived wearing hats of every colour, shape and style, and they all looked amazing. The reason for turning on the style was to brighten the mood, for it was the evening we were saying goodbye to three people who are held in high regard, our…

October Meeting

Our President Dorothy Readman welcomed everyone to what was a very well attended meeting, and because we were all awaiting a much anticipated demonstration, business was kept to a minimum. After the announcements, Jennifer gave a report on the Centenary Picnic held at Glenham Park on September 16th the actual date that the W.I. was formed one hundred years ago. She told us that it poured with rain, causing members to set aside their finery, and settle for wellies,…

I:51:54

One Hour, fifty one minutes and fifty four seconds into the PC meeting.  This MUST stop. The issue was NOT council business – just used as a platform to produce more venom.

This meeting was not a good meeting although it had its lighter moments. Slightly scary when one councillor demonstrated how magnets work by waving a baking tray around whilst clicking a magnet on and off it. (21:44) I looked round the table to try and spot which of the councillors may not know that principle of…
