Bradden W.I.

On the evening of the 25th March Roy Smart presented Wallis Simpson and the Abdication Crisis 1936. The Bradden WI were treated to an informative and scandalous talk on the life and loves of Wallis Simpson. Accompanied by slides and music, Roy told the story of Wallis’s rise to fame and fortune through her association with the wealthy men of the day and eventually her part in the abdication of the Prince of Wales. A very enjoyable and entertaining evening.

In April Sally will be speaking about tracing your ancestry with “Who do you think you are”. Having delved into the past for a few of our members Sally and Peter have being tracing family trees over lock down and have offered their services to other members foc should they be interested. If you are interested in taking Sally up on her offer please complete the form attached above.

May is time for the annual WI resolutions which will be accompanied by a quiz and in June we have Alan Gray, a Wimbledon umpire who will be delivering his talk “You can’t be serious” which we hope will be in the village hall with prosecco and strawberries to really get a taste of Wimbledon. Of course this will be restrictions permitting.
