On a 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.
