Podiatrist Damian Murray

 

President Madeleine welcomed everyone to the meeting and extended a special thank you to Pam E for producing on our behalf, such a wonderful scarecrow for the Scarecrow Festival. Pam and her husband have both been really busy lately regarding WI issues. Terry has worked hard to give the Memorial Bench in the churchyard a new lease of life, re-staining it beautifully. We are very grateful to him for doing this.

Our speaker on this occasion was podiatrist Damian Murray. We all enjoyed his very informative talk on feet and footwear. It was intriguing to discover that we have 26 bones, 33 joints, 112 ligaments and 28 muscles in each foot. We were pleased to hear some good advice concerning the many ailments it is possible to have with our feet, including chilblains, which, contrary to popular belief, are not a thing of the past.

WI business commenced with names needed for the Harvest Supper at St Francis Church Hall on October 11th and the Christmas Miscellany at Wenvoe Castle Golf Club on November 22nd. This year Wenvoe WI is hosting the Link Carol Service, which is to be held at St Mary’s Church Wenvoe, on Thursday December 13th at 7pm, followed by light refreshments in the Church Hall.

Our Christmas meal will take place on Monday 10th December at 12.30 pm at the Wenvoe Arms. Menus will be available at our November meeting and payment then would be welcome and appreciated. The speaker for our November meeting is Sheena Crossley, who will be speaking about the Gardens of Wales. There is no charge for the event and visitors can always be assured of a warm welcome.
