Latest news from Bamburgh WI
Christine Hutchinson welcomed members to our February meeting, especially as it was not the best of days weather-wise.
Details were given of county events coming up. These included flower arranging with afternoon tea, a visit to Richmond, a bowls competition, and a visit to the Terracotta Army exhibition in Liverpool.
We had also received invitations to a quiz night at Shilbottle WI, gin tasting at Cheswick WI, an Easter Bunny Beetle Drive at Craster WI and Howick WI’s 100th birthday.
As it was Valentine’s Day we thought we would have a wine tasting event, but we were let down by a supermarket. However, one of our members, Judy Cowan, decorated the hall beautifully and organised a Valentine Miscellany.

Members flung themselves into the celebration by reading Valentine poems, especially liking Miss Joan Hunter Dunn by John Betjamin, and Pam Ayre’s I Am Ready Mr Prescott.
The table games were enjoyed and a couple of members warmed themselves up by playing table tennis. There was a lot of chat and laughter during the competitive table games and the self-service tea party.
Jean Sinton won the competition ‘P’ with her opium smoking pipe, and members went home with a single red rose.
