October 2010’s meeting saw the Alexandra WI being formally constituted by representatives from the WI Essex Federation. We are now official!
The members of the committee, the Secretary and Treasurer were confirmed and nominations were taken from the members for the Alexandra WI’s President. We are very happy to announce that the President is Victoria Weatherby.
A number of ladies bought along some divine culinary treats, together with their recipe, for one of their favourite tasty but easy dishes. We were treated to banana and white chocolate flapjacks, Florentines, meringues, divine eggless chocolate cake, Jamaican patties and chocolate brownies to name but a few! Thank you so much to all those who shared their recipes with us!
In the spirit of getting to know each other better we whiled away the rest of our meeting chatting together and learning about all the plans afoot for the Alexandra WI. There is a lot of interest in a proposed trip to the Threads of Feeling exhibition at the Foundling Museum and our first sub-group, the Knitting Group, looks to be hugely popular!
So watch this space and please look around the website for further information on any of the activities of The Alexandra WI.
