Special celebration as Areley Kings WI hits landmark

Areley Kings WI marked the 90th anniversary since it was set up by hosting a special luncheon at the Village Hall which allowed them to look back at their work over the decades as well as ahead at their future projects.
As the landmark coincided with the Queen’s 90th birthday this year, they invited former chief petty officer of the Royal Yacht Britannia David Rushforth as guest speaker.

Margaret Cook attended a course at Denman college. A place became available last minute, Margaret seized the opportunity!

The course was Digital Photography. Margaret learnt the secrets of taking the perfect photo, the only thing lacking was the perfect camera as she only had a compact camera … point and click.

One evening the group went out during the evening to learn about night photography, that was a memorable event!

Skittles Match

Areley Kings WI Skittles Team playing their last match of the season at Worcester’s British Legion club under the guidance of our Team Captain Ann Bailey. Regrettably we lost this match by only 3 points. Here you see Paula Wood rolling the ball down the skittle alley.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, it was great fun watching the pins fall and other times when the balls glided effortlessly between the pins, not once but several times!

Congratulations to Pam Sheward for attained the highest score for that evening.
