ON September 4, 20 ladies of Pumsaint WI attended a meeting at the Coronation Hall, Pumsaint.
Congratulations were given to all who had won prizes in the local shows. Helen’s open garden day had been very well attended. She thanked us for making cakes, and many cakes were sold, making money for her dedicated charities.
Names were taken for the next walk and tickets given out for various events. A list was read out of suggested speakers and activities for next year’s programme.
Our speaker for the evening was Becky Hulme on red squirrels. She is the Mid Wales Welsh squirrel officer and explained where they are in the forests in our area and how they are trying to keep out the larger greys so that they can increase in number.
On October 2, 15 ladies plus one guest attended the meeting. Arrangements were made for food and raffle prizes for the group meeting on the 23rd. Next year’s programme was finalised. It was decided not to have a Christmas meal in December but to wait until January when ladies will have more time.
Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, November 6, for the AGM. Refreshments to be provided by the committee. For further information please contact Diana Jones on 01558 650153 or Anne Brooks on 01558 650154.
