Our August meeting turned out to be a very enjoyable visit to Birch Trees Garden near Eccleshall.  Susan & John Weston’s garden was full of interesting plants, shrubs, and trees. They made us welcome with tea, coffee and biscuits, and sold us some of the interesting plants

September 5th was the date of our Annual Show, and what a great day it was. There were sixty four adult exhibitors, and thirty children, entering a grand total of 473 exhibits.

Our guest was the Radio Stoke Gardening Expert, who presented the trophies at the end of the Show.  He told us all that he was very impressed by the Show, and the quality of the exhibits.  We had over two hundred visitors to the marquee to view the exhibits and enjoy the afternoon teas in our tea room, manned by our excellent catering staff.

October 22nd will be our Annual General Meeting, so come along and elect a new committee.

Our meeting are usually held in All Saints’ Village Hall on the fourth Thursday of each month, beginning at 8pm   For further information, please contact Mike Baggaley on 01889 270161 or m_baggaley@btinternet.com

Unusually there were short spells of intense concentration and silence as members of Milwich WI enjoyed their first meeting after the summer break!   Our Speaker for the evening Lynn Eaton helped to give us our first taste of Christmas as she guided us through making a delightful choirboy to hang on our Christmas trees.   It all sounded so easy but obviously our fingers were not always as nimble as we would have liked but great fun was had by all and we were all able to take home a completed tree hanging to put by ready for the Christmas season!  Lynn concluded her session by reading to us an amusing tale entitled “This old lady has come to live in my house”, parts of which sounded only too familiar to most of us!!

Final arrangements were put in hand for the forthcoming Flower Festival which is to be held over the weekend of 19/20 September.   Several members had enjoyed a day trip to the WI Centennial Fair in Harrogate and also a day at The National Memorial Arboretum. Details were given to members of forthcoming County events.

We have an open meeting on Wednesday 14 October, when Butcher Simon Wilson from Abbots Bromley will be coming to speak to us about Sausage and Pork Pies with hopefully some delicious samples!  Further details from Mary on 01889 505678.

Rural Policing matters

Dear Watch Member,

The National Rural Crime Network is working to see greater recognition and understanding of the problems and impact of crime in rural areas so more can be done to keep people safer.

Their "rural policing matters" campaign is urging the government to maintain fair funding for rural areas, which are currently at risk of losing funding to more urban areas.
