WI – Silence was observed in memory of member Ray Butler when Hainton and District WI met for its monthly meeting in South Willingham Parish Hall.

It was the annual harvest meeting and produce auction sale and the group welcomed ten visitors from East Barkwith WI.

They were entertained by Andrew Sankey, who gave an interesting and amusing talk on the history of harvest and its customs over the years. Mr Sankey then auctioned the donated harvest produce, sold in aid of WI funds.

Tickets are available for the Louth Group of WIs’ autumn meeting when Sue Allan will talk on ‘A Tudor Rose, My Life with Lady Rose Hickman of Gainsborough Old Hall.’

Members were congratulated on their trophy success at the Louth Group Produce Show.
