BLAKEDOWN WI: This month, being the 97th birthday meeting, members had a wonderful night out at La Brasserie in Kidderminster. It was an evening of chat and true friendship enjoyed by everyone and a very big thank you to June Gordon for organising such a wonderful evening.

There was a minimum of business with reminders about the Christmas meal at The Granary in December and the ambling group now taking a rest until spring. The next meeting, in November, is back to our usual meeting room.
