Flixton service - A songs of praise service conducted by Rev Canon John Simpson, held on the site of the ruins of St Andrew Church at Flixton on a beautiful afternoon was well attended. Thanks goes to Mr D Jermy for preparing the site.
Women's Institute - The monthly meeting held in the village hall opened with president Barbara Shaw greeting members and friends. Reports were given on the ghost walk in Great Yarmouth which was a success, and the members visit to take part in the Dales WI quiz. The darts team were congratulated and presented with certificates on being the runners-up in the Federation Darts competition. The team were, Margaret Boyce, Grace Edwards, Joan Edwards and Nancy Gillings, and as usual the double one proved very difficult for both teams with Earl Soham eventually being awarded the trophy.
There was no speaker as May is traditionally the month to debate the WI resolution to be debated at the annual meeting. There was only one resolution this year asking the government to provide additional funding into the problems of bee keeping and the general decline in the bee population. After discussion this was carried unanimously and the vote will be taken to the annual meeting by this year's delegate from Lowestoft Evening WI. The evening concluded with a wine and cheese supper. Members were reminded of the ready steady cook evening on June 16, at 7.30pm.
