Barkby and Beeby WI

We have had an interesting evening in April, starting with our notices of a visit to Highgrove House in the summer and a theatre visit to see Oliver after Christmas. Added to this, the darts team won 4-3 against Leicester Ladies, here’s hoping the skittles team can match this in May! Our speakers in April were Bob and Del Neill who ran a Bits & Bobs Fun Evening. They brought along a mixture of old items some of which were very strange and we had great fun trying to figure out what they had been used for. There was a gadget for cutting the top off your boiled egg, one for cutting spills to light the fire, I don’t think anyone got that right, a cigar cutter, a pipe from a church organ and the most peculiar a wig stand, this last one was very strange and not resembling a head shape at all!  There were a few which we knew but most were guess work which is what made this a fun evening which we all enjoyed. Our June meeting will be held on Tuesday 16th, when we have Willow Weaving. Come and join us, you will be made very welcome, we meet at Barkby Village Hall at 7.30pm.
