The meeting progressed speedily but efficiently. It included a presentation of an attractive plant to Jean Davies who retires after 5 years as treasurer.
Next came a presentation of a cheque for £500 from the Co-op whose representative, Liz McLean, announced how pleased they are to support village activities. She stayed to enjoy our speaker whose subject The Wonderful World of Wade was fascinating.
Jane Pugh from Bishop's Castle informed us of the history of this family company who are market leaders in producing flagons for wines and spirits. She had examples of various types of ware including the famous Whimsies (small pocket sized animals) from the 1950's.
Collectable "antiques" had come from an Esso petrol promotion for Tetley tea and the ones to look out for are the aeroplane and Morris Minor moneyboxes.
A lovely vase from the Royal Victoria collection inspired Jane to produce a large flower design to complement the pottery, an added extra not usually associated with a speaker.
