At their most recent meeting, Godolphin WI was delighted to welcome three members who had belonged to Germoe and District WI, which sadly suspended earlier this year. Godolphin WI hopes the three will enjoy what is planned for the coming year.
The speaker for the evening was Reverend Geoff Davis who spoke about “Reflections of a Cornishman”. He told the members about his life from a young man born in Cornwall, then setting off around the country singing in a band, the sad death of his infant son and how he coped, his journey to becoming a vicar and being ordained in Canterbury Cathedral. He kept the group laughing all evening with stories and anecdotes about his life and the people he has met.
At the close of the meeting, long-serving member Diane Williams had her name pulled out of a hat to receive the Godolphin WI annual bursary of £25 to attend a CFWI educational event or workshop.
A group of Godolphin WI members had a night at the Zennor Theatre, Penwith College, recently. The Penzance Musical Theatre was outstanding in its performance of the tuneful and heart warming story of the Von Trapp family. Maria and the seven young children had the group all wanting to sing “Do Re Mi” along with them, as well as “The Hills Are Alive …” with Maria. They report it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Coming up next for Godolphin WI is a street party to celebrate King Charles III’s Coronation. The road through Godolphin Cross will be closed from 2pm-7.30pm on Sunday 7 May. Anyone who wishes to join the village in this historical moment is welcome to come along; please bring a chair and plate of food. Tea and coffee will be available but anyone wanting something stronger to cheer in the new King will have to bring their own!
