We held our monthly meeting on the 31st July at Tarvin Community Centre; members were able to see the newly refurbished ceiling in the Edna Rose Room and were impressed with the lighting effect from the new ceiling lights.

Our speaker for the evening was Barbara Foster, who has been a Volunteer for the National Trust based at Dunham Massey for 23 years

Barbara told us of her experiences and fun while carrying out her duties as a Room Steward, she was a lively and interesting speaker making us all laugh with her exploits at Dunham Massey

The Hall at present has been transformed to mark the centenary of the First World War and has become a hospital once again discovering the stories of soldiers, nurses and the family who lived there. Members were inspired by Barbara and I am sure many will be visiting Dunham Massey in the future, as a result of her lively talk

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 27th August 2014 at 7.30 pm, in the Edna Rose Room, Tarvin Community Centre where Karen Urmston will be telling us about the Hospital Heritage of Tarporley War Memorial Hospital. You are welcome to join us as a visitor or why not come and join us as a new member?

Please contact Irene Wilkinson, President Tarvin WI on 01829 740868 or Margaret Mathews Secretary on 01829 741081 if you require further information.
