Temperance Tales from Sussex and Surrey: Thursday, 7th July at 8.00pm in The Council Chamber, Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield

An illustrated talk by author Ros Black for Cuckfield Museum , featuring a forgotten aspect of social history. Ros will introduce us to Lady Henry Somerset and to Duxhurst, her farm colony for ‘inebriate women’, situated just north of where Gatwick now lies, and brings us some surprising stories from our local area. She will be selling copies of her book “Scandal, Salvation and Suffrage – the Amazing Women of the Temperance Movement” and it promises to be a fascinating evening.

To reserve a place, please phone Mike Nicholson on 01444 457448 or email Tickets £5 or £3 for members.

Cuckfield Evening WI’s May meeting: provoked some lively discussion on the two Resolution topics concerning Dementia Care in hospitals and Food Waste, both of which were carried. The results will be discussed at the WI AGM in Brighton in June. The appeal to support the WI’s own College, which was having financial difficulties , had been very voraciously discussed in the April meeting, which several visitors attended. This meeting was a very relaxed one, as we wanted to have more time to talk to our new members. Two classes were entered by members at the South of England Show , the short story and the fruit cake. Marion Davison got a second prize (out of nearly 30 entries) for her cake. New members welcome. Please contact Marion on 01444 455939.
