Simon White joined is for the evening to demonstrate the prickly art of holly wreath making. A self taught wreath maker he churns out hundreds from his conservatory for sale at the festive season, at very very competitive prices. He was a delightful man with excellent conversational skills.

Coming Up:-
November 1st 2011 - Annual Committee Dinner.
This years dinner will be held at Theobalds. A little treat for all the hard working committee members to relax and let their hair down !!.

November 10th 2011 - Pakenham W.I. A.G.M.
This is the only all business meeting of the year held to elect a new committee and president for 2012 and for members to hear all the reports of the previous year 2011.

December 8th 2011 - Annual Christmas Dinner.
This years dinner will be held in the village hall. Andrea Davey will be serving members her fabulous Christmas Dinner which will be accompanied by excellent wine, music and a rather special film show.

This will sadly be my last report as president of Pakenham W.I. Other committee members have expressed their wish to become the president for 2012. I have had some very difficult decisions to make over the past week. As my ideas and aspirations are totally different from theirs I feel it wise not to stand for committee and leave the running of my beloved W.I. to a new team.

Many thanks to Holly and Ann for being so supportive and giving my reports so much publicity over the past months and years - I have loved being part of your village news editions. My thanks go to a super team of girls on the committee especially Carol, my reporting counterpart and Tracy, our resident photographer who have enabled me to get the news and pictures out on time every month.

A team of friends and I would like to invite all to A Christmas Coffee Morning in Pakenham Village Hall on 7th December from10am to 12pm to raise money for Help 4 Heroes. We look forward to your company.

Mary S Kirby.
