  • Pershore Ladies Guild

    THE Isle of Man Roundabout was the title of the talk prepared by our speaker Mrs. Catherine Jones on Tuesday, November 4. Catherine illustrated her talk with scenic views around the Isle whilst giving us an insight into the history of The Isle of Man from the first inhabitants in Neolithic times to present day. Many changes took place over the years. Shipwrecks were common due to the rugged coastline and one ship contained a cargo of sewing machines so they would certainly have been useful to the residents. I always wondered what the Isle of Man symbol meant, well now I know , “ whichever way it is thrown it will stand” a good quiz question. The Isle of Man make their own laws and people can petition and about concerns, and, The House of Keys are obliged to debate and act upon it if necessary. read more

  • Bretforton Garden Club

    DID you know that you can use Sweet Cicely as a substitute for sugar, or that Marigold flower petals contain lutein which helps to protect the eye? These were just some of the fascinating facts that members learned when listening to Julia Scott talk to us about her walled herb garden at our meeting in November. The garden itself had originally started life in 1839 as a walled kitchen garden but had gone into a state of disrepair over the years. Julia and her husband had unearthed the original garden design and restored it to its previous Victorian splendour with a number of herb beds for different uses including medicinal and cooking. read more

  • Cropthorne with Charlton WI

    IF you think that folk music and folklore is boring you would be wrong. We had an amazing evening with Richard Churchley. He combines his love of music with his love of history and musical ability to provide information and entertainment. We began with A Victorian folk song “Johnny Me Own True Love” accompanied by Richard playing the accordion. In this we were encouraged to sing one line of chorus by the end of the evening we were singing in four part round! The ten songs played were from a Worcestershire or Warwickshire and a variety of historical periods. Some brought back memories of singing at school from The National Song Book. One of the oldest a drinking song originally referenced to the Spanish Armada and, as with many folk songs, changed over the years to refer to the Crimean War. The final song relevant for Remembrance Day was the version sung by Warwickshire RHA in 1915. There are many versions each adapted by different regiments as a marching song from the original 1873 version. If you get the chance to hear Richard alone or with his group make the effort whether it be folk, rock or skiffle. It’s fun. read more


    We had a really good turnout for our meeting on Thursday morning, November 13 and everyone was in fine form. President Jim Cox welcomed visitor Bill Birch of Pershore and we were all delighted to have Dennis Hallett back after an absence of some weeks. Instead of a rant of the week, Bill Underwood then read a hilarious description of the national characteristics of the English, Scottish and our European neighbours. Although gross exaggeration is increasingly common, it’s nice to know that we haven’t been “a bit cross” since the Spanish Armada! read more
