CYNTHIA Spooner, president, welcomed members to the February meeting of the Morning Women's Institute at the King Edward Centre on Friday, thanking everyone who had donated cakes to the recent coffee morning, which was very well attended and hoped those members who had joined West Walton for their New Year meeting had enjoyed the evening. Names were taken for the forthcoming annual council meeting and the darts, dominoes and Scrabble evening.

After the business was completed Mrs Spooner gave a full account of the Cuba Cycle Challenge in which she had taken part in November last year, raising funds for Denman College, the WI Education Centre in Oxfordshire. Cycling about 40 miles a day, 34 cyclists spent five days in the saddle, clocking up a total of 209 miles. She said that on one occasion, after a very tiring ride, Jerusalem was sung on the mountainside to boost spirits. Mrs Spooner thanked everyone who sponsored her, including Metalcraft and Tesco. At the next meeting, on Friday March 9 (10am) Ian Crowther will give a talk on crime prevention.
