Dovenby WI February 2013

After a short business meeting the "Cukes" were introduced.

There are a group of fourteen ukulele players. They played well-known tunes from the 1960s, 70s and 80s with everyone joining in the singalong. Solos were sung by Mike Yoxall and Jane Dickens, with one of the group playing a Lonnie Donegan song on the washboard. They finished their repertoire with a toe-tapping jazz tune, and the whole was successfully brought together by compere Bob Smith.

A vote of thanks was given by Geraldine Baldwin.

The competition - an old family photograph, was won by Jean Moralee with Shiela Wilkinson second.

The quiz was won by Alison Bradshaw, with Margaret Harding in second place.

The raffle was won by Mary Foster.

Dovenby WI is always glad to welcome new members or visitors. Meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30pm at Bridekirk Dovenby School.
