Isleham Women’s Institute
Spring 2007 report
n March we welcomed The Edinburgh Wool Shop to our meeting for a Fashion Show of their new spring lines. Several of our members acted as models, and very attractive they looked – a good advert for the W.I. In April we welcomed the return of Paula Dolan, who entertained us with a selection of poems she has written about her life. Members found her very entertaining, as many of her memories echoed their own. The competition was ‘Your Own Poem’. The winner was Monica Howe’s ‘Memories of School Days’. This and the other entries were read out to the meeting, and were much appreciated. I
Professor John Savill and his Punch and Judy came to the May meeting. John gave us a history of this well remembered sea-side entertainment, accompanied by slides. He then showed us the puppets – many of which he had carved himself, and others he had collected, some of which were more that seventy years old. Then the highlight of the evening – our own Punch & Judy show! It is many years since most of us have seen it, but the story is still the same, as was the laughter that came from all corners of the room. Thank you, John, for a truly entertaining evening.
Also in May ten members visited Sandringham, a very pleasant day.
There will be no meeting in June, as we have our Summer Outing, but in July the Citizen’s Advice Bureau are coming. I am sure it will be interesting to hear about the invaluable work they do.
