The March meeting saw the election of a new Committee for the coming year. We have a varied programme of events, which started with an extremely enjoyable visit to Grantham Guildhall to see Cats. The Star Academy were wonderful and it was agreed by all that the production was at least as good as, if not better than, anything to be seen in the West End!
Our President, Jean Taylor, gave a very full account of the Spring Council meeting, which is held annually in Spalding and which is open to all the WIs in South Lincolnshire.
Mrs Rampley was the very entertaining Speaker for April. She brought along her wonderful collection of ladies’ corsetry dating from Victorian times. There were hoots of laughter at the design of the various contraptions that ladies had to harness themselves into at the start of the day and huge relief that times have changed (certainly for the better as far as ladies underwear is concerned). Memories came flooding back and it was agreed by everyone that the dreaded “Liberty Bodice” was anything but liberating!!
