Fifty members in an array of WW2 outfits attended the AGM in March.

The formal part of the evening was attended to first with the President’s Report being read by Pam Foakes, our outgoing President, she reminded us of some of the speakers and entertainment we had had over the last year and thanked the committee for their hard work and then Jane Anderson gave a very comprehensive report on the club’s accounts.

The current Committee were re-elected together with Sue Copeland  (a previous committee member who had been persuaded to re-join) as Sheila Gray was stepping down. Gen Frewell was voted in as President for the current year with Julia Dymond agreeing to be Vice-President.  Pam was presented with a bouquet of flowers for all her hard work over her year and Sheila’s were delivered to her the following day.

Everyone then tucked into a Fish and Chip Supper and this was followed by a fun quiz which was won by Sue Copeland, Caroline Hendrickx, Diana King and Carolyn Richardson.  The prize for the best dressed went to Angela Clarke.

The next get together is on 22nd April when R. Sloane will be the speaker with the subject of “From Babies to Broadcasting”. Currently membership is full but visitors are very welcome at the cost of £3.50 which includes refreshments.

Details of all our meetings and speakers can be found on the diary of the home page of the Winstred 100 website. If you would like further information about P.A.W.S please ring one of the following committee members: Alice Holmes 01206 735510, Jane Banks 01206 735004 or Jane Anderson 01206 735505.
