Latest news from Bamburgh WI
The president of Bamburgh WI Christine Hutchinson welcomed everyone to our March meeting.
County events were described, included a domino drive and a Centenary Photography competition.
The March lunch club will be held at the Queen’s Head in Berwick, and we will be holding our final Quiz Night of the winter in the Castle Inn on March 26.
Our speaker for the afternoon was Steve, from the Northumbria Blood Bikes scheme.
He gave an extremely interesting talk, which was very well illustrated with photographs.
With a fleet of motorbikes and some cars, the blood bikes cover all of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, and County Durham.
Members volunteer their services from 7pm to 7.30am during the week, and the blood bikes cover 24 hours over the weekend.
Although independent of the NHS, being a charity, it acts as a courier service for the NHS.
Steve also brought along one of the charity’s motorbikes and several photographs of it were taken.
He was thanked by Anne Kirton.
The competition was won by Pat Newton and the raffle by Lorna Colligan.
Our next meeting will take place on April 11, at 2pm, in Bamburgh Pavilion.
A warm welcome is extended to visitors and potential new members.
