WI had a very busy time last week, on Wednesday 25th it was our monthly meeting. The speaker was Don Rustage who gave us an insight into 'The path to the First World War'

He kept us entertained all evening and bought with him some memorabilia from the 1914 — 1918 war to show us. This included a rifle which members were surprised at it's weight and a small mirror which was used to attach to a bayonet to see what was going on above the trench the soldier was in. A lively questions and answer session took place after the talk.

On Saturday we took part in Tarvin Fete by setting up and manning a display of craft made by WI members. This included 28 different crafts, some examples being tatting, toy making and embroidery.

Just to keep up the WI tradition a jar of jam was also included. The stall was manned during the afternoon by Tarvin WI members who talked to people visiting the hall about the crafts displayed and the possibility of joining a WI.

We look forward seeing some of them again at our next WI meeting when the speaker will be Julie Graham on Canine Partners.

We had a name the doll competition during the afternoon and this was won by Ellie Larkin ' Margaret Dixon's granddaughter.Well done Ellie, she named the doll Heidi.
