Dolau WI November 2013 Report

Our November meeting was proceeded by the Annual General Meeting.  The Treasurer presented the financial report which showed an increase in subscriptions and more WI activities throughout the year.  The report was adopted

The secretary presented a report on the activities throughout the year which reminded us of all the enjoyable times we had.  The President reflected on the many successes DolauWI had had and more importantly the team work and fun enjoyed by us all.  The membership had increased in the year and she hoped that 2014 would reflect the same amount of enjoyment and success.

Nominations were received for the following officers to carry on in their posts for 2014:

  • President: Heather Lewis
  • Secretary: Colette Gwynne
  • Minutes Secretary: Gill Holt
  • Treasurer: Christine Jones.

It was agreed that they had all done such a great job, therefore there were no other nominations and they all accepted.

Other posts were: Press Secretary –  Wendy Duggan and Diane Lawrence: Raffle Organiser – Marion Powell: Competitions Organiser – Ann Williams.

Following the AGM, a meeting followed when final arrangements were made for our visit to the Birmingham NEC Good Food Show, arrangements were also made for the Christmas Party to be held at The Horse and Jockey, Knighton and our annual Carol Singing which will be on 16 December around the Dolau area and on the 19December around the Penybont area.

The quiz team were congratulated on their win at the Howey Annual Quiz after a nail biting tie-break! The team members were Barbara, Chris, Diane and Jenny.

The WI have definitely decided to enter the Rose Bowl Competition and arrangements are in hand for some of the competitions.

Our next meeting will be on 4 December when we will have a bell ringing demonstration and hopefully will all be able to have a go which should make for a fun meeting.
