Our May meeting was a meeting of 2 halves with May being traditionally the Resolutions meeting and our celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
We discussed and voted to support the proposed resolution “Women and girls presenting with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are going undiagnosed.”
Members were then served with prosecco and cake and President Sue led a toast to the Queen. The cake was baked and decorated by our catering wizard Jack. Members enjoyed the chocolate sponge, filled and decorated with fruit and topped with meringue.
Members enjoyed a game of Royal People Bingo with 3 teams tying for first place. A hastily produced tie break saw Gina and Bee coming nearest to the question “How many rooms in Buckingham Palace?”. They each won a Jubilee edition box of tea bags adorned by corgis.
A competition to make a crown or tiara saw many members wearing their creations, even our guest Chris and visitor Karen joined in the fun. Members had been promised an award winning judge to appraise their efforts. Sue introduced our very own Jack, winner of a number of our competitions last year. Jack had come complete with an amazing crown which fooled members as she secretly spent the evening considering everyone’s efforts. Members were invited to stand for a final inspection.
Jack announced Sarah G as the winner and she was presented with a prize of fizz and jubilee tea towels.
The evening showcased both sides of our WI – the serious and the fun – a perfect WI meeting.
