WI Newsletter – September 2008

For us this month started with the Village Fete, but for the first time in many years I was away attending a family celebration, so cannot give a first hand account. However, I gather the weather just about held and it was a busy afternoon as our members served delicious home made teas.

The end was in sight for our walking group as they completed the final stage of the Clarendon Way the following weekend, finishing at Winchester Cathedral on a lovely sunny day.

Then it was time for us to return to the village hall after our August break and we were given a bird’s eye view of the world, courtesy of Heather Hook, who is a professional aerial photographer. Heather started her career, almost by accident, whilst living and working in Portugal, and although not having a head for heights, found she enjoyed this new experience. She gave an excellent enthusiastic account of her career, illustrated by stunning shots of South Africa, the coral reef in Australia as well as familiar landmarks around the United Kingdom, including Windsor Castle and the Cities of London & Bath.
