Harry   Green   was   our   excellent   speaker   this   month.   Harry,   a   “local   lad”   well   known to many of our members, is Head Gardener at Morton Hall near Inkberrow. He   gave   us   a   brief   history   of   the   property,   which   has   been   an   estate   in   some   form for   many   hundreds   of   years.   An   old   barn   there   was   mentioned   in   the   Doomsday book.   The   present   owners   have   completely   refurbished   the   garden   and   opened   up vistas through the garden and of the surrounding countryside. Our   Christmas   meeting   is   on   Wednesday   12th   December   and   an   evening   of   fun   is being planned. Our   meetings   are   on   the   second   Wednesday   of   every   month   at   the   Village   Hall, 7.30pm for 8pm. Visitors are very welcome. Please phone Jean Smith on 01527 861437 for further information.

Chaddesley Corbett WI

Members   enjoyed   a   wonderful   evening   of   entertainment   at their 98th birthday celebration on Wednesday 7th November. Other   important   milestones   coincided   with   the   birthday,   the 100   year   Armistice   marking   the   end   of   the   First   World   War; the   centenary   of   the   Worcestershire   Federation   of   WIs   and the   centenary   of   the   Representation   of   the   People   Act   which gave women the vote for the first time. The   hall   was   decorated   in   the   suffragette   colours   of   green, purple   and   white   bunting   and   several   members   dressed   in Edwardian dress and suffragette colours. Following   the   business   part   of   the   meeting,   the   Worcester Ukulele   band   sang   and   played   a   wide   selection   of   songs ranging   from   hits   by   the   Stones   and   the   Beatles   to   well- known   wartime   songs   and   everyone   sang   along.   A   buffet   was provided    and    some    of    the    food    was    based    on    recipes published   at   the   end   of   Armistice   when   rationing   was   still   in place. Chaddesley   Corbett   WI   were   delighted   to   participate   in   the Remembrance     Service     at     St     Cassian’s     on     Sunday     11 November.   Drene   Baker,   President,   laid   a   wreath   at   the   re- dedicated    memorial,    members    knitted    poppies    for    the arrangement   at   the   entrance   to   the   church   and   provided        refreshments after the service.
