There was a good attendance at Doddington Women’s Institute’s October meeting and three visitors were welcomed.

The meeting began with a flower demonstration by Corinne Turner assisted by Charlotte. They made two autumn wreaths and three Autumn arrangements. These arrangements were then entered into the raffle. Corinne and Charlotte were thanked by Valerie Gobie.

The Centennial Competition was for a flower arrangement in a pumpkin and was judged by Corinne and Charlotte. The winner was Mavis Gamsby who was presented with a W. I. Silver spoon.

The refreshments were served by Marina Heslop and Liz Welcher.

The monthly competition was for something typically “Irish” and was judged by Ann Larham and Wendy Crane. Twenty points were awarded to Marjorie Bishop, Anne Chambers, Mavis Gamsby, Chris Oakes and Janine Woodhams.
