The next WI meeting will be on Tuesday 14th July, and takes the form of a treasure hunt around the village. Members and guests can pick up their clues from 7pm at the Cosey Club and can reconvene there for a talk about the history of the original Haslington WI, as well as the usual business.
The June meeting was a roaring success, with special guest speaker Adam Partridge drawing an audience of 70 members and visitors to the Cosey Club in Haslington.
Adam is an antiques expert, with his own auction rooms in Knutsford, and has appeared on several television shows including Flog It! and the Antiques Roadshow. He regaled the audience with hilarious behind-the-scenes tales from the world of television, as well as his best and worst stories from the world of antiques. Several members brought their own interesting antiques and treasures for Adam to discuss, and the competition was won by Annie Roberts, with some of her favourite jewellery. Also of interest was a very old typewriter, of a type that Adam had never seen before, and which had been languishing in the owner’s shed!
As ever, new members, guests and committee members are very welcome and anyone requiring further information should contact Secretary Rachel Hughes on 01270 585623 or by email HaslingtonWI@googlemail.com
