WOMEN’S INSTITUTE: At their September meeting, members spent an entertaining and often hilarious afternoon listening to our own North Yorkshire Federation chairman Julie Clarke tell us about the joys and sorrows of a hill farmer’s wife. With her usual mixture of lively personal anecdotes, reflections on life and warm hearted story telling, Julie told us about her experiences of living in a remote part of Coverdale. Julie kindly judged our September competition for a Yorkshire themed tea towel. The winner was Marina Smith, with Elizabeth Barker second and Alice Selina third. Our visits programme includes Boundary Mills in September and Lightwater Valley in October. We are also looking forward to the pub quiz at Bolton Abbey village hall in October and thinking ahead to Christmas with our annual collection of Sox and Chox for the Bradford Soup Run and our Christmas lunch at the Rombalds Hotel. Our craft and chat and Scrabble groups start again in October and the luncheon club is meeting at the Methodist Church in September. Next year’s visits programme is packed with great trips thanks to Jean White, our visits organiser. If you are interested in joining, come along to one of our meetings at 2pm in Ben Rhydding Methodist Church Hall on the second Thursday of each month. The next one is on October 10 when we have our annual meeting, a visiting speaker and will be sharing a WI birthday cake for good measure. Visitors at a cost of £3 and prospective members can be sure of a warm welcome.
