A VARIETY of forthcoming activities were planned by members of Blackwell and Burcot WI at their April meeting.

Among them were a visit for coffee to Burcot Grange residential home, the next craft group meeting, a fashion show at Hagley WI, a summer soiree at Hartlebury Castle, and a visit to the Good Food Show at the NEC.

The annual sponsored Bluebell Walk for Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) took place on April 25 with lunch afterwards at the Victoria pub in Barnt Green.

Anyone interested in joining a lunch club – a new venture – was asked to sign up and the first meeting will be on Thursday (May 19).

The speaker was from a company supplying food supplements which also acted as a charity to help provide nutrients in places like Africa and Afghanistan where children have a poor diet.

He spoke of how intensive farming over many decades meant there were now fewer minerals in the soil and consequently in food.

After thanking the speaker for his interesting and informative talk, the raffle was drawn, the meeting was closed and tea was served.

Visitors and new members are always welcome.
