As February is National WIs Show the Love campaign, Cresswell House hosted a board display by Rosie Harden-Vane of Westmoor Wonders WI and the climate change scarf by Sue King of Jesmond WI.
Here Federation Chairman Marj Read can be seen showing the love. One Board member has pledged to reduce her usage of single use pens and has gone back to her refillable ink pen…
What did you do to show the love in your WI?

Chapel House give tribute to Marjorie Goodchild
Chapel House had a wonderful demonstration by Marjorie Goodchild who inspired all with her cooking for a Valentine Supper for two. There was a choice of two starters, two mains and a pudding.
Marjorie generously donated each dish for the raffle at the end of her demonstration. Whilst Marjorie was cooking, she entertained us with funny stories and gave alternatives to the various recipes that she made – many of us were making notes as we had been given a list of ingredients for each dish.
As this was to be Marjorie’s last ever event after having presented 479 before our meeting, we were really pleased that we managed to book her. Chapel House WI wish Marjorie well in the future and send her many thanks for a lovely evening.
North Gosforth WI had Phil Patterson talking about The Ouseburn Valley and Victoria Tunnel. He was hugely entertaining and well worth booking.
