INKERSALL: Poet Val Waite shares her story with women’s club

Members of Inkersall Womens Club welcomed Val Waite to the club. The theme of her talk was “Gems from my Jewellery Box”, but the gems in question were not jewels but related to children. She found she had a talent for writing, mainly poems and also illustrating. She wanted to create imagination in children who read her poems. She has had many of her poems published in the Daily Mail. The vote of thanks was given by Kate Fisher.

Tea ladies for the evening were Gwen Cadywould and Wendy Brown and raffle winner was Jenny Richardson. Extra raffle winners were Carol Cooper, Carol Rimmer, Rachel Wragg, Jean Baker and Marion Spencer.

Minutes were read by Wendy Payne.
