Our April meeting

We had a very full house for our meeting this month, and for very good reasons!

Our speaker, Mrs Ute Brice, kept her audience rapt with a talk about being an evacuee during the Second World War. As a young child, Mrs Brice, along with her family, was evacuated in 1938 from Stuttgart to a village in the Black Forest. She shared with us all of her stories, some good and some bad – from collecting bilberries in the countryside with her twin sister to having her family home in Stuttgart destroyed by bombs. It was a fasincating talk and we were all completely caught up in it.

Crowlas and Ludgvan WI was founded on 27 April 2000 which makes this our 15th birthday! To honour the occasion, after the meeting this week, rather than our usual biscuits, we were treated to a very special birthday cake. A huge thank you goes to Val Puddiphatt for making the delicious cake which was enjoyed by all.
