Bedwyn WI enjoyed a jolly Christmas lunch at a local Inn for their December meeting.
President Joy Ash had previously set a challenge to write a limerick and these were read out to much amusement between courses. Here are some of them:
There was an old woman from Bedwyn
Whose garden was doing her head in.
So with no more ado
She waved “Toodle- oooh”
And moved on with her books and her bedding.
Along at the WI
The members decided to try
Every flavour of cake
That the ladies could bake
They exploded of course! Goodbye
A group of women from Bedwyn
Had Christmas lunch at The Pelican
They drank some wine
And had a good time
Then staggered off home to bed again.
So I joined the WI
At the behest of Helen and Di
I’m no good at baking
But shouldn’t be faking
With ready-made items I buy!
There was an old Lancashire lass
Who sometimes felt out of her class
But she never could deny
When meeting with WI
That many good things came to pass.
There was a lady from the USA
Moved over to Bedwyn here to stay.
She knew no-one here
But soon it was clear
The WI’S welcome made her day!
