very cold and frosty night we were welcomed in to the warm and
brightly decorated Village Hall with a glass of wine and friendly
faces. The tables had been beautifully decorated by committee
members ready for our supper . John and his team were in the
kitchen getting every thing prepared . Amongst the friendly
faces were friends and members who have been absent from our
meetings because of ill health ..It was lovely to see them all.
After our supper of roast beef followed by bread and butter
pudding the entertainment began. "The WI Babes in the West"
was written and produced by Pauline Brace and acted by some
of our members. It was a pantomime written around the villains
of the piece named Murdoch with Minnie and Haha two little indians,
well one tall and the other short, and three glamorous "Babes"
and their agent not forgetting the flat footed sherif and of
course the narrator. It was a good old fashioned pantomime with
lots of audience participation. At the end Pauline was presented
with a lovely poinsettia and thanked for her patience and encouragement
enabling the cast of complete amateurs to perform with enthiusiasm
and a great deal of enjoyment. For the audience as well we hope.
The next meeting is January 9th 2013 when Heather Alford will
talk about volunteering in Nepal at a Leprosy hospital.
