Article excerpt

Rowlands Gill WI: A special general meeting had been called to vote on a proposal to cancel the meeting in January and convene one in August instead. However, after some discussion and a show of hands, the vote went against the proposal.

Announcements regarding future outings were given, including the County Carol Service at Winlaton, a Christmas evening meal at the Manor House, Carterway Heads and details regarding the resolutions meeting and the welly plodge in January.

The meeting then welcomed the full complement of the Derwentside Singers for a much-enjoyed programme. Raffle prizes were won by Mrs Robson and Mrs Hardy. Mrs Jean Peacock offered a "Night of Flowers" for the January meeting, when the competition will be a favourite Christmas card.

Entertainment will be going out for our winter meal at The Swan, Heddon. Once again we would like to invite ladies to join us on the first Monday of every month.
