What a treat was the third Open Meeting of this 95th year of Holton le Moor WI in the Moot Hall.

Joined by guests from the Northwold Group of WIs, members were given a demonstration in bread making by Linda Hewett of Fulbeck Bakery.

Not only is Linda an expert baker, with a passion for wholesome handmade bread, she is also an energetic speaker who informed, entertained and amused in equal measure.

Samples were enjoyed and bread packs added to the raffle, contributing to an outstanding finale with December’s Christmas lunch to close the year’s programme.

The previous meeting heard James Green, manager of Woodhall Spa’s Kinema in the Woods, describing the history of the film industry in general and the Kinema in particular, through his interesting career in cinema.

Now plans are afoot to pay a group visit to the Kinema for afternoon tea and a Nostalgia showing.

The programme for 2014 promises more friendly gatherings, and visitors are always welcome.

New members are doubly welcome in the run up to 2018 and 100 years in the community. Contact Megs on 01673 828674.
