Lindfield Evening WI welcomed three visitors to the August meeting. Would-be members are always invited to try before they buy. We hope these ladies liked what they found! 
August’s speaker, Neil Sadler, talked about his road trip through California during the USA federal government shut-down in October 2013. Neil had found armed guards barring entry to national parks and the Grand Canyon. But the holiday was not completely scuppered and Neil shared some great stories and pictures of San Francisco and the iconic Route 66, now quaintly down-at-heel.
After coffee and socialising, the meeting continued with a raffle, pots of pelargoniums and dahlias for birthday girls, and reminiscing on lost skills such as adding ounces and pounds and handwriting formal letters!
This month members have been out and about, walking along the seafront at Goring and climbing to the top of the Clayton railway tunnel portal to visit David Porter, who lives in the “castle” and cottage there. 
In the next few weeks, some members will be taking part in “The Sleeping Giant”, a WI production at Worthing Assembly Hall to mark the centenary of the WI in 2015. Others will be going to watch! Lindfield Evening WI will celebrate its own 60th anniversary next year and there has been much ferreting through the archives and scrapbooks. Many of our pictures will be on display at Lindfield Arts Festival 18 - 20 September.
The next meeting of Lindfield Evening WI will be at King Edward Hall on 10 September when Bill Avenell will talk about Christ’s Hospital School. To find out more about Lindfield Evening WI and for contact numbers, check our noticeboards outside King Edward Hall and in Denmans Lane.
