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.

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.

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,…
