25th Anniversary Celebration


In Madeleine’s absence, vice president Margaret welcomed members and guests to our 25th anniversary celebration party on March 15th, postponed from March 1st. Members from Dinas Powys, Culverhouse Cross and Penarth institutes joined us, together with Carol Atkinson, June Humphrey and Helen, who has made our lovely banner. There was a silver and Welsh theme, with silver tableware, music, daffodils and a Welsh quiz. Everyone had fun trying to link up childhood photos of our committee with the right member. The banner was launched during this important occasion and we had a wonderful buffet with a delicious cake, made and decorated by Natalie, Lyn’s daughter in law

WI business included plans for the literary lunch in Porthcawl on March 22nd and the holiday to Norwich at the end of the year.

Next month’s speaker is Mansel Thomas on the Rotary Doctor Bank – a good follow up to last years talk by Keith Moger on the history of Cardiff hospitals. Guests are most welcome. Madeleine’s letter to all members is printed in this month’s magazine.
