GRAPPENHALL WI – A Report by Pam Gault
After the singing of ‘Jerusalem’ any business, correspondence and finance was dealt with. The fledgling bowls group asked if anyone had or knew of anyone who had unwanted bowling balls that members could use. A new walking group was now off the blocks with a short taster amble on the 31st March.
Forthcoming events are a trip to the Midland Hotel in Manchester in May, an outing to Castle Howard in June and our own WI show in August.
We then moved on to our speaker, Natalia Kerkham. Natalia’s subject was ‘Herbs for Health’. Originally a finance manager in the NHS, Natalia decided to retrain as a medical herbalist and nutritionist. The number of uses for herbs was amazing. They could be used for many ailments including colds and flu, relieving indigestion and nausea, helping memory and concentration and improving circulation. Never again shall we just look at mint and rosemary to accompany lamb!
Grappenhall WI meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the Grappenhall Community Centre at 2-15pm. Our next meeting is on the 20th April.
