WI - At the June meeting of Burgh WI The flowers for the presidents table were brought by Jane Dinsdale.

The Spring Fair brought in £530 and was a huge success.

The speaker for the evening was Darren Garwood who showed a delightful array of photographs which he had taken during his time in the RAF as an official photographer.

His photos showed combat aircraft at home and abroad and these were used as records of military work for the press and also for the military.

His finale was of his time in the Falklands with a film of penguins at sea. A truly uplifting evening.

Bloom of the month winners were M Spence, L Ladd and M Pisaarska. Winners of the competition ‘A Royal Souvenir’ were S Widdowson, P Haynes and L Swatton.

The next meeting is on Wednesday, July 3 when the speaker will be local author Margaret Dickinson. The competition is a birthday card verse.
