Jane Anderson, presided at the recent monthly meeting of Edstaston & Coton WI, welcoming members.

A busy agenda included arrangements in hand for a canal boat trip with the Lyneal trust on August 10. On June 14 and 15, Lynne our secretary has her gardens open at Four Winds, Gilbert’s Lane, Whixall under the National Gardens Scheme, from 10.30am to 4pm.

The June meeting will be our 70th birthday meeting, arrangements are being made for the celebration.
