At July’s meeting the popular West Tilbury WI ladies were entertained by author, broadcaster and after dinner speaker, Brian Carline.
With his tools in hand, Brian took the ladies on a spoken journey of his introduction to, personal experiences and life-long commitment to gardening with his ‘Soil, Sweat and Tears’.
The plants for prizes went down a treat with the members, who as always, were competitive to answer his questions.
Also during the meeting, President Joanne took the opportunity to present our former WI Treasurer Liz Wakefield, who stepped down in May, a beautiful bouquet of flowers as a big thank you from us all for looking after our groups finances for the past 5 years.
President Joanne said: “On our next meeting on Tuesday 3rd of September we are pleased to be welcoming Brian Billings, who will be coming to talk to us about the ‘History of Pubs & Signs’.
“Please feel free to join us for the evening, make some new friends for a chat as well as coffee and cake. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month and are always ready to welcome new members. For more information call Jo on 07964534406. We look forward to seeing you.”
