2017 meetings January

The January meeting was attended by 26 members and one guest. The business meeting included a reminder about the resolutions and a voting board was circulated. Birthday flowers were won by Anne Cashmore and the competition for a ‘fishy’ plate was won by Marion.

Andrew Gooding from Amble development trust and the ‘Creel Club’ then gave an interesting talk about fish, from the changing trend in people’s attitude to eating fish to the political issues surrounding the fishing industry. He demonstrated how to prepare a squid for cooking and then showed us how to take the head and skin off a gurnard ready for the pot. He explained how the Creel club operated and left leaflets for distribution to members. The evening finished with a cup of tea and a biscuit with plenty of socialising.

Our next meeting is on Tuesday Feb 7th ‘Marmalade making members evening’. Please bring a jar and say how you made it; the Warkworth WI competition in the Warkworth show is for a jar of marmalade. The competition is for 3 jam tarts.
