WI members and their guests took part in a 50-question quiz.
For their August monthly meeting, Elsenham WI hosted an online quiz to entertain their members and guests.
In a move aimed at making this meeting particularly special, in the days running up to the quiz, all members had a ‘Meeting in a Box’ delivered to their front door.
Almost 40 members and guests logged in to take part in a quiz run by fellow WI member, Sam Briggs who had also donated the prize, a voucher to spend at Owls Hill tearoom that she runs in Terling.
There were 50 questions on a range of subjects, including a round on ‘powerful women’.
The winners were WI President Moyra Jackson and her husband Ian.
Sandra Smith presented her daughter Sam, who lives next door to her, with a bouquet from the WI to thank her for running the quiz.
In the days running up to the quiz, every member had a surprise delivery, made by one of the Elsenham WI committee members. Each ‘Meeting in a Box’ contained a cream tea with scones, clotted cream, jam, and a teabag.
The WI have long campaigned for funding to research honeybee decline, raising awareness of the plight of bees and the action needed to help them so the box included a pack of bee friendly seeds.
There was also a raffle ticket, to be drawn at a later date via a random number generator, some hand sanitiser and a fitted facemask, handmade by Elsenham WI Secretary Gill Hathaway to complete the contents of the pink and white striped cardboard box.
Moyra Jackson, President of Elsenham WI, said: “Although we can’t meet in person at the moment, I’m so pleased that we’ve been able to offer our members a way of keeping in touch virtually. The quiz was great fun and the surprise delivery of our ‘meeting in a box’ made August extra special for our members.”
Elsenham WI has a full programme of activities and is always keen to welcome guests and new members. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or search for Elsenham WI on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
