Barkby & Beeby W.I.

In place of our usual meeting, July saw our members in two different venues. We were invited to Glenfield W.I for an Old Time Musical Hall and a visit was also arranged to Hungarton to view two of the gardens, luckily they had a lovely warm evening for it.
I went along to Glenfield with eight others and we were very warmly welcomed. They had arranged for the Sundial Theatre, that is Guy Rowlands and Keith Minchaull, to entertain us. They sang many of the old music hall songs, which we were encouraged to join in with if we knew the words, there were two monologues and the pianist played a piece by Greig, without the music score!
They were humorous and very entertaining, we also enjoyed the sing a long. We had an interval halfway through to enjoy a large assortment of cakes with tea and coffee. I would like to thank the Glenfield ladies on behalf of the Barkby & Beeby W.I for their warm welcome and a lovely evening. 
As a part of our centenary challenge we also did a litter pick around Barkby and were surprised to fill a black bag with rubbish as at first sight there didn’t appear to be much litter around.
Our skittles team played Seagrave in the group final and won 2-1, well done to all who took part. The Group Secretary, Shirley Franklin, presented the trophy to our President, Chris Parker.
