Jean Williams Recounted to Warmingham members just a few of the surprising turns her life had taken. These included writing a book that sold out more than one print run and taking a job as a guide at Little Moreton Hall. She’d done nothing like either of these endeavours before and succeeded beyond her expectations. The main focus of the evening was her work at Little Moreton Hall. As Jean said it’s “a perfect capsule of Tudorness”. She provided a superb mix of tales behind the scenes at the Hall with information about the Hall and some of the interactions between it and its visitors. Although many in the audience were familiar with the Hall everyone discovered new nuances and understandings and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. No doubt there will be some new and further visits to the Hall this year!
Warmingham members are looking forward already to the Cheshire Show and beginning work for this. As well as the normal monthly activities this month includes a trip to Nantwich for a guided tour of St Mary’s Church, followed by lunch.
Looking ahead there is a date to put in the diary for Warmingham members and for visitors to Sandbach. The date is Thursday 8th May. On this morning members will be selling cakes and crafts on a stall at Sandbach Market. Everything is home made by Warmingham’s WI talented members and (based on past experience) will sell out quickly: like hotcakes!!
Wednesday 2nd April is the next monthly meeting and in a timely fashion, Julia Denton will be presenting on Easter Sugar Craft.
The meeting begins, as usual at 7.30pm and visitors are welcome. Trying Warmingham WI could be a New Year Resolution!
