CHOLES­BURY-CUM-ST LEONARDS

Mike Bartlett took us to St Peters­burg at our April meet­ing, telling us the his­tory of the Am­ber Room, and show­ing slides of the as­ton­ish­ing re­con­struc­tion com­pleted in 2003 in the Catherine Palace.

The de­scrip­tion of the Am­ber Room it­self and of St Peters­burg made many think that this should be our next hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion!

Mem­bers at­tended the An­nual Coun­cil Meet­ing in Ayles­bury and were in­spired by Dou­ble Win­ter Par­a­lympian Anna Tur­ney’s story.

Our group meet­ing took place on the fol­low­ing evening, hosted by Great Mis­senden at Mis­senden Abbey.

The meet­ing was very well at­tended and there was an ex­cel­lent pre­sen­ta­tion by Eva on the his­tory of the abbey.

And on April 28 a few of us went to Iv­inghoe to see the hand­ing over of the WI Cen­te­nary Ba­ton to Bed­ford­shire Fed­er­a­tion.

May will be our Res­o­lu­tion Meet­ing, this will fo­cus on the as­sess­ment of need in long-term nurs­ing and per­sonal care and the re­sults of our vote will be taken to the NFWI Cen­te­nary AGM at the Royal Al­bert Hall on June 4.
