Moreton Outwoods and Bromstead W.I. Report for August

What a success our Open Meeting was, twenty one visitors and 9 members attended the August Meeting in the Millennium Hall. President Anne Griffiths gave a very warm welcome to everyone, it became even warmer as the evening progressed as we were rather squeezed into our meeting room with so many lovely visitors, no complaints there.

p11.jpgA number of business items were discussed, Tickets for the Council Meeting, Tong Tours on Wednesday 11th September £10 per head was very popular, and the Afternoon tea on Sunday 8th September in the Hall 1pm to 4pm, £7 per head which includes numerous wonderful food items, Funds from this event goes to Severn Hospice and MOB WI. We were reminded about the wonderful Scarecrow Festival around the villages this weekend 17th and 18th August, there will be 59 Scarecrows, times 10-4pm starting from the Hall.

Our Speaker for the Evening or rather the Demonstrator was Ruth Lory, with “Flower arranging in your home” Ruth gave a comprehensive demonstration of 5 wonderful arrangements anyone would love to have. Ruth was down to earth, funny, relaxed and entertaining while putting together charming and downright gorgeous flower filled arrangements.

The five delightful arrangements were raffle prizes. The Competition for a Favourite Flower Container was won by, 1st Gill Day, 2nd Penny Shakespeare and 3rd Marian Kerr. Next months Meeting we have John Price on “Memories are made of this” The competition is a Childhood Treasure. Please come and join us, 7.30pm in the Millennium Hall Moreton, on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, everyone is most welcome.

A very strange summer indeed ,so much rain of monsoon proportions !!! Plants that have grown into giants!! Hope you all managed a little escape somewhere in between the rain!! We don’t have a group meeting in August instead we come together for a meal together and a cocktail or two maybe!! This year’s venue was Aston Marina Restaurant, our meal was wonderful and we all enjoyed the evening together. Seems a little strange to be thinking about next year’s holiday already but that’s what we will be doing at our September meeting!! Our very own Travel Store is coming along to tempt us with ideas for travel both near and far!! Bring your notebook!! Look forward to seeing you, if you know of anyone who would like to join our happy band please bring them along, they will be made most welcome!!

Please come and join us at THE WORLDS BIGGEST COFFEE MORNING at the Grosvenor Centre on FRIDAY 27th SEPTEMBER 2019 between 10.00am and 12 noon. Admission is £1.00 and we have a variety of STALLS including Produce Stall, Jewellery and a Raffle. This event is hosted by the Phoenix Club and all residents in the village and their guests are welcome to attend. The money raised helps Macmillan fund specialist nurses, new cancer centres and grants to support people living with cancer who have financial problems.

Alternatively, if you would like to make a huge difference to people affected by cancer, you can do it your way by just getting your friends together and hold your own Coffee Morning event to support Macmillan on this day (or choose your own date which is convenient to you.) So why not get together with friends? You can invite your neighbours round? Or would it be fun to hold it at work and get your colleagues involved? You will be amazed at how many people will want to join in. To register to receive your own fundraising pack please ring Macmillan on 0300 1000 200 or visit
