It was a question of the show must go on when the scheduled speaker met with an accident just before she was due to attend the WI's open meeting in July.

The president, Ann McCutcheon, stepped in and gave some amusing anecdotes of her life in Nigeria until Shirley Rose, the emergency speaker, arrived. She gave an interesting talk on 'Food, cooks and cookery books' and showed her collection of old recipe manuals. Mrs Rose was warmly thanked for standing in at such short notice before members and 15 visitors enjoyed a special afternoon tea.
