Five of our lovely ladies attended the Annual Teesside Federation WI lunch today at Gisborough Hall. This is always a great social occasion, with eveyone making the most of the opportunity to meet up with other WI members from across the county.
This year our speaker was ‘The Yorkshire Shepherdess’ Amanda Owen. Amanda, who is 8 months pregnant with her 9th child, gave an amusing and inspiring talk about her life on a sheep hill farm at Ravenseat in Swaledale . A remarkable lady, she still manages to find the time to serve coffee and scones every day, so it is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
Many thanks to Teesside Federation for organising such a lovely afternoon; we are already looking forward to next year’s event !
