We had a wonderful coach ride to see the sights, 'did' the Tour of London and had an excellent tour round the Houses of Parliament at a very significant moment in the Brexit negotiations.

Railway Children

On Wednesday 29th November, Gill, Kay and Jane went to Endmoor Village Hall to hear David Maidment talk about the charity, Railway Children, which he founded twenty years ago to help street children in India, the UK and East Africa.

His talk was moving and highlighted the dangers the children face and what his charity has been able to do to improve matters.



The website says:
Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect.
Reaching a child as soon as possible is crucial to getting to children on the streets before an abuser can, and before they become entrenched in street life. We race to get to children before the streets get to them.

Dalemain



Gill and Sandy visited Dalemain with other WI members from the north of England and south of Scotland at the invitation of Jane Hasell-McCosh.

After a wander around the garden and a chance to buy the famous marmalade in the shop we were given a wonderful presentation by Pat, one of the guides, with pictures showing  us many of the treasures.  We were also told the history of the house and about the family.

The event culminated in a delicious afternoon tea of sandwiches, scones, eclairs, cakes and biscuits!
