This was our Annual Meeting when the years’ work and efforts are reported on and discussed by the members. This has been a busy and successful year with great speakers and four new members. Our treasurer gave a full financial report and was pleased to announce that our funds were healthy and that our fundraising had been very successful this year. After Jane our Secretary had given her report on the years’ activities our President Gill gave her general address in which she thanked the committee for all their considerable efforts throughout 2017. And also thanked everyone for their support and encouragement, and told members that it is they that make the W.I. what it is today. She then awarded the Presidents Cup to Vivienne Goffee for all her work behind the scenes.
We then moved on to the business of electing our committee and president for the coming year. The voting procedure was in the hands of Christine and Mary from Fressingfield W.I. who were acting as our tellers for the evening. The committee was re-elected as was our President Gill Bird. The rest of the evening was devoted to a ‘Silent Auction’ in the capable hand of Patricia. It all proved to be great fun and her efforts raised £105. Jane G. gave a warm vote of thanks to Patricia who had worked so hard in the planning and preparation of the Auction. Before closing the meeting, Gill said how much she was looking forward to seeing everyone at our Christmas Dinner which is a highlight in our year.
