Stone heads & talking news…

… were the topics for the WI’s talks after their AGM which Mrs Beecham chaired.  Following the AGM, the current committee remains in place with the exception of the president Pat Moran who will be replaced in January by Susan Leng.

Following tea Jan Lumb gave a fascinating talk on her stone head. It was ploughed up in a Yorkshire field and came south with the family and resided on a rockery in Hertfordshire finally coming to the village location in 1976. Museum historians date it about the beginning of the first century.

Hillary Nugent told members about the talking newspaper which is distributed around Colchester and her involvement as part of a team who selects and reads the articles.

Next month is the Christmas party. Members are asked to bring cutlery and a glass. The meeting will start earlier at 7pm.
