Shelford WI has again had a busy few months.
We were lucky to be allowed an England Netball Coach for 20 weeks of Walking Netball - a brilliant way to get back into exercise.
We have had walks arranged by our member Dinah Wilcox with help from Linda Moxon. Our 91st Birthday was celebrated by a meal at a nearby Pub.
Our March meeting had us all laughing wenn we were entertained by Barbara Deakin, she gave a fabulous talk 'My Life on Stronsay'
February was another brilliant speaker from Boots the Chemist. 'The History of Boots' by Thomas Bell Archivist of Boots. He gave a riveting talk from the early days of John Boot to the more famous Jesse Boot. We certainly learned a great deal during the evening.
Shelford WI Information
We meet on the first Thursday of every month in Shelford Village Hall on Church Street. The meetings start at 7-30 pm.

In March, 2 of our members Angela Unwin and Maureen Harper won the Nottinghamshire Federations Darts Pairs competition. They previously won the same competition in 2015.
During January and February we collected Pyjamas etc for
the Teenage Cancer and Childrens Cancer Ward at the QMC.
We collected an amazing amount and the Ward was overjoyed with our donation.
