Yate WI welcomed 22 Members and 2 Visitors on a beautiful summer evening to their July meeting in Poole Court, Yate.
As we are having a break in August, we had an End of Term Party and a Hen Party (non-alcoholic!) for a Member who is getting married soon. Members were given a coloured card on entry and sat at the relevant table which meant we were all sitting with someone we didn’t know.
After business we settled down to the games. We had two charts of names and we had to match which pair were married to each other. This threw up some surprising answers! One person got every answer correct but she admitted she reads a popular celebrity magazine! Each table had a Committee Member as Hostess/Games Master. We then had a Quiz all about marriage. The Games Masters then took Members through the other games by moving around the tables. We played 10 Clues, Card Bingo and something that involved a clucking plastic chicken (mmm!). A small prize was given to the winner of each game.
We then had a break for tea and cakes, courtesy of the Bride-to-be. We had our first Raffle with prizes of toiletries, a scarf and a scented candle.
Our next meeting is on Monday, 9th September at 7.30 pm, which will be a talk by John Ford, recently Mayor of Yate, on his time as Mayor. We will also have a book sale.
Visitors are welcome at every meeting and you will be given a warm welcome.
