Dovenby WI June 2010
The June meeting was opened by Julie Rollison acting President / Secretary. After the reading of the May minutes and completing any business arising, guest speaker Pauline Bibby was introduced.
Pauline gave a talk with slides on the WI garden at Tatton Park. Her remit was to submit designs in 3D of a proposed garden at RHS Tatton Park to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the WI.
From all the designs submitted, four were chosen, and as the adjudicators liked all four designs, it was decided that they should all be combined,with the four members concerned working together in one joint effort.
Pauline showed slides taken from day one of the week before the show up to the completion of the garden. This resulted in Pauline and her three colleagues were rewarded by the winning of a Gold Medal.
A vote of thanks for a very interesting talk was given by Julie Rollison.

The Quiz - was won by Pat Harper, with second being Lena Slater, and third was Nita Eubank.
