Dovenby WI February 2019

The meeting was opened by President Nita Eubank, this being followed by the reading of the January minutes by Secretary Sheila Martin. The County Newsletter was quickly read through before the introduction of the 'Sunshine Trio'.

We were given a nostalgic rendition by these talented ladies, who included a singer, a pianist and a violinist. They gave us a lovely evening, playing and singing songs from the past, including 'You are the sunshine of my life', 'Daisy', 'Amazing Grace' and many more, bringing back memories of the past.

Apart from the singing, we were given a mix of poems, jokes and storytelling, which added to the entertainment. The best activity was attempting a barn dance sitting down!!

The Quiz was won by Ann Lister, with Martha Robinson in second place.

The Competition - a musical box was won by Pat Saunders.

The Raffle was won by Martha Robinson.

Meetings are usually held at Bridekirk Dovenby School on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30pm. More details, contact details and a programme are to be found on http://www.bridekirkparish.org.uk/wi
