WOOKEY HOLE W.I. DECEMBER 2018 MEETING
 
    It was almost a 'full house' at our December meeting and seasonal celebrations were top      
    of the agenda.
    Christmas jumpers were in abundance ,a bumper raffle , music, and a table laden with festive 
    goodies set the scene.
         Mulled wine was consumed whilst the ladies pondered over a Christmas Quiz provided by 
   Sue H. We then invited everyone to draw on their artistic skills by cutting out a shape and 
   adding it to a blank sheet of paper. We did provide some templates if needed.
    Gradually a rather lovely Nativity picture emerged . 
   The end result was much better than we expected ! 
   Our masterpiece will now be displayed at the Nativity Festival at St Cuthberts Church.
         Jill thanked everyone for making poppies and sharing  their personal stories for our         Remembrance display in November.
  Thanks were also expressed to those who had brought 'goodies' for the food bank.
   Sounds of "Happy Christmas" echoed around the hall as members made their way home.
 
   Jill Deane    Picture of our masterpiece provided and also a party picture.

A few years ago Lucy White was invited to think of a social club that could be useful in Wookey Hole in gathering people together for enjoyable times. scrabble club copy 2.jpg

Lucy loves playing Scrabble and wanted to find likeminded people so started a Scrabble Club by delivering notices about it door to door .

The Wookey Hole Club, built in 1884, has a long and colourful history. Minutes of the Club Committee are still in existence from its inauguration through to the present day, with only two periods, 1940-1949 and 1974-1980, having been mislaid. The content of these documents gives a fascinating insight into the recreational and social behaviour of village residents over the past century.

Our meeting began with a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday as Pauline F is due to celebrate a very special day. Our W.I. also had cause to celebrate as it was our 72nd Birthday. We ,and two invited guests, enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Burcott Inn. 

Next month is our AGM so nomination forms were completed and then our thoughts turned to Summer Activities. Most involved food and relaxation. 

Our speaker was Nicky Houston from Killens Auctioneers.For those of us who are Bargain Hunt 

fans this was 'just up our street'. The daughter of an auctioneer she began at an early age and then studied Fine Art valuation. She explained how fashion fluctuates and changes with each generation.

Regulations and licences must be adhered to eg. sales of ivory and rosewood. Porcelain origin etc 

was fascinating and Ercol furniture and Vinyl records are now the 'in thing'.

Our competition was 'Bring an antique item ' Much to our delight she told us about our items that had interested her. It was quite an eye opener .Sheila thanked her for a talk which , had we more time . we could have happily extended.
