Last week we held our second AGM, so this seems an apt time for a trip down memory lane and a recap of what we've been up to over the last year.
What a year it's been! We've crafted, learnt to make curry and run round town on a murder mystery trail. Members visited the V&A, curry night was launched and we held a sewing workshop. We've met therapy dogs, been thoroughly quizzed about local and WI knowledge and learnt first aid. We had a busy tea and cake stall at Music in the Meadows, had massages at our wellbeing evening and learnt to hula hoop. New information boards have been introduced at the monthly meeting, with details of upcoming events, WI campaigns and all the BNR news. We also have a sales table each month, with lots of lovely items handmade by members, and a popular book exchange raising money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
Over the last year we've welcomed 21 new members and seen a lot of change within the BNR Committee. It's exciting that we now have 4 new volunteers bringing fresh ideas to the committee, and we look forward to introducing them properly to you over the next few weeks. The full committee is now as follows:
Cat Hoare President
Jeanie Wharrier Secretary
Miriam Forster Treasurer
Mandy Dineley Programme Secretary
Carole Whatnall Publicity
Our 2018 programme is almost finalised and we look forward to sharing it with you very soon!
