The talk at our October meeting is on the life and times of Joyce Grenfell and is sure to be very entertaining and members will also enjoy a cake demonstration when we meet in November. Why not join us. We meet on the first Wednesday of the month at the Methodist Church school room at 7.30 p.m. We would be most welcome.


Peckforton and Beeston WI
At our October meeting Kath Reynolds’ talk was entitled – Goose Grease and Brown Paper. Kath took us on a trip down memory lane to pre-NHS days when families definitely could not afford the doctor. She brought to life kitchen cupboard remedies as members reminisced about the dreaded spoonful of this or that that Grandma had decided would make us better. We learned how to get rid of an irritating cough, a wart or a nagging toothache. This was a very interactive session as members shared remedies from their early years, using honey, salt, onions, mustard as well as Kath’s amusing introduction to the snail, urine, string and cow muck. We all went home loving our onions. It was an absolutely super evening. Our AGM and supper is on 7th November followed on 5th December by Judy Popley talking about Stately Homes, estate buildings and their legacy, if you would like to join us you would be very welcome.
