September's very vibrant monthly meeting took place on Wednesday 30 September 2015 in the Edna Rose room, Tarvin Community Centre and was duly opened by the President, Irene Wilkinson who welcomed all members and a number of visitors.

Edna Rose
Members were delighted to see the recently refurbished Edna Rose room with the new curtains, tables and chairs. We could imagine Edna smiling down at us being very pleased to see her legacy being carried on. Many Tarvin residents will remember that Edna became the first Chairman of the newly built Community Centre some 42 years ago.

She put a tremendous amount of time and effort into the local community and was largely responsible for raising much needed funds by ensuring the centre was in constant use. Passionate about amateur dramatics, she was able to involve many others in aiding her cause which resulted in her producing many Pantomimes and Musicals that were very popular with the community over a number of years.

Recent Activities

The W.I. Centennial Fair — Harrogate

The W.I. Centennial Fair in September was a huge success. 13,880 W.I. Members attended the event which ran over 3 days. Several members went by coach and felt the day was well worth it as there was much to see and do. Some said it was fabulous and one lady said it was one of her best days out and many are hoping for a repeat performance of the fair next year.

Celebration Lunch
16 members celebrated the W.I. Centenary with lunch at The Royal Oak, Kelsall during September and this was followed by an invitation from Irene Wilkinson to join her in a celebration glass of Fizz at her house.

The Red Arrows — William Boyce
This evening's speaker was William Boyce who gave us a very informative and illustrated history of the world's premier aerobatic team, The Red Arrows. A military aviation enthusiast since the age of 5 and a keen photographer, William was able to display through his many photographs and enthusiastic talk, his passion for the many daring feats the highly professional aerobatic team perform. Members found the background knowledge of superbly trained pilots very interesting and a number of questions were asked by members at the end of the talk.
