Vice president Nita Eubank opened the meeting and acting secretary Sheila Martin read the minutes of the February meeting.

Nita continued with further correspondence, and then introduced Mona Brough, an expert on the Cumberland dialect!

Weel it's WI ageann and just fwoor a laal bit o' fun, let's listen to Mona Brough.

Mona, a member of Dean WI filled the room with laughter from her humorous stories and poems, all told in Cumberland dialect. She certainly has a feeling for telling a tale! To keep the dialect alive she involves herself with visits to various functions, including Dean School. The children must be intrigued by her tales.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and Sheila Martin gave a vote of thanks and commented that we might not have felt so happy when we arrived, but we were feeling areet garn yam.

The April meeting is a visit to Moota Garden Centre. A talk will be given on herbaceous plants and borders, followed by supper.

The competition, a Cumbrian recipe was won by Nita Eubank.

The raffle was won by Mary Foster.

The quiz was won by Pat Saunders.
