THE annual meeting was held in December; the minutes were read and approved and the election for president and committee then took place. Shirley Billing was elected as president and the committee was re-elected, with the addition of Fleur Kerrecre joining the committee. The members, accompanied by Joyce Thoulbourn on the keyboard, sang carols, followed by a buffet. There were some very pretty entries in the competition, which were donated to the members of the day centre.

At the January meeting, the president welcomed members to the first meeting of the year. The president told the members that at the January meeting in 1943 the entertainment consisted of members cooking; to re-create the tradition this year, four members demonstrated the cooking of hot and cold recipes. Sue demonstrated and cooked a recipe of sausage and tomato pie her mother used to cook. Chris made a tomato soup, Shirley prepared a strawberry and cream slice and Linda baked a coconut tray-bake cake. The members were able to sample the dishes with their coffee.

The minutes were read and approved. Sue Morgan won the competition for an old cooking utensil.

The meeting on February 6 will be at the Arkenstall Centre at 7.30pm. The speaker will be Marianne Baker from Cambridge Acre and the competition is for an article of Royal Memorabilia.
