12 Members from Egmanton attended the River Group meeting at East Markham Village Hall on Tuesday evening. Entertainment was provided by the U3A Ukulele Band, also known as the Newark Happy Band. They played many well known tunes from various decades including; You are My Sunshine, We are Sailing, knees up Mother Brown and Shake Rattle and Roll (which included some enthusiastic percussion from the ladies in the kitchen).
Tea, Coffee and a lovely selection of cakes were served during an interval which allowed people to chat and discuss the music they had heard so far.
The raffle was drawn once the entertainment had concluded and at least 3 of our members were lucky enough to win something.
The theme for the table top competition was to depict the Calendar Girls. All five entries were similar in many ways, with each WI choosing to depict the sunflowers, and crafts which were included in the original calendar. However, it is with much pride that we report that Egmanton WI won the competition this year. Our president, Daphne, was pleased to present the Rose Bowl Trophy to her own members.
