TWENTY-seven members attended the WI's May meeting and were welcomed by Anne Chambers.
It was reported that progress was being made on the East of England Show entries and the carnival float. Taylors Tea was distributed, and members wishing to try the decaffeinated sample gave their names.
Members were reminded about the plant sale on Saturday May 20, the Church craft weekend (items need to be brought to the church on Friday May19) and the food hygiene seminar at the Church Room on May 31.
Gill Jolley and Anne Chambers put the resolutions before the meeting and a short but lively debate followed.
