MARGARET Lewis and Christine Head were thanked for hosting a 'Big Breakfast' which raised £82.20 for the branch.

There had been doubts about a WI float in Doddington Carnival this year but enough members have now come forward to take part as 'Calendar Girls'.

Invitations were given out from March Stone Cross WI to attend its garden party and from West Walton WI for a quiz night. A coach outing to Thursford show on Sunday November 18 has been arranged and members are asked to bring payment of £43.50 to the June meeting. Joan Hall has offered to host a whist-training afternoon at her home.

Members enjoyed a ploughman's supper prepared by the committee and Sally Shortland organised a tasting of three different coffees supplied by Kenco.

Anne Chambers and Gemma Watts led the debate on the closure of community hospitals and the meeting agreed unanimously that the Government should be urged to stop these closures.

The competition for a loaf of bread was judged by Sue Bradshaw and 20 points were gained by Gill Jolley; 19 by Margaret Patterson and 18 by Jenny Rust. These count towards the Ellington Cup.

Members of the newly-formed Manea branch are being invited to the June meeting which will be an Antiques Roadshow led by John Smith of Abbey Antiques, Ramsey. The competition will be an old garden tool.
