PEACEHAVEN WI: Thank goodness the weather was greatly improved and we had a very well attended March meeting. Everyone enjoyed an excellent ploughman’s lunch prior to the business of the afternoon.

This month’s speaker was our old friend Graham Albon, who pointed out that this was his tenth visit to our WI. As you can tell we find his talks very interesting and today was no exception. Mr Albon said that Travel Broadens the Mind – the title of his talk, and after briefly telling us of his trips to more than 40 countries he showed slides of various different parts of the world, explaining in detail each picture. We were left with a fascinating glimpse into many diverse lands ranging from Iceland to Japan.

We follow that next month with something nearer home, ie Gardening, on April 4. Do come and join us. (Joy Allen).
