Monday 27th November – the AGM and a Cheese & Wine Tasting Competition
The President, Secretary and the Treasurer gave short reports about the last year.
The 2018 committee will comprise of Elicia (President), Sarah (Secretary), Jen R (Treasurer), Sue H, Val, Gill, Chris & Judy
Wine and Cheese tasting was VERY enjoyable – big yummy thanks to Sarah!
Four members and 1 dog went for a long hike (in lovely sunny weather!). They walked from Disley up to The Fox Inn at Brookbottom, then over the tops to New Mills and back to Disley via the Millennium Bridge and the canal
Four members went to Manchester and had a tour round Manchester Town Hall (‘The Original Manchester Town Hall Expert Historical Tour’) led by Ed Glinert. It was a fascinating 2 hours. The tour was followed by lunch at Tampopo in Albert Square – absolutely delicious. I’d highly recommend the corn fritters and Singapore Noodles
There was a trip to a live screening (from the National Theatre) of Sondheim’s legendary musical Follies
Seventeen members attended a craft Workshop, led by Jenny, to make fabric Christmas Wreaths
This year, for the first time Disley WI participated in the Remembrance Day Ceremony on the Ram Green. A collection was made at the October meeting to raise money to pay for a wreath from the WI – Elicia laid it on our behalf.
The Thursday Book Club read “The Bees” by Laline Paull
Lots of bridge was played throughout the month as usual!
Nihilism, nudity, no future: Derek Jarman’s bleak Britain comes pungently to the stage – Jubilee at the Royal Exchange Theatre. Two members went to see it and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Lunch/Supper Club had lunch at Bents Garden Centre in Worsley
