Women Institute: at the start of the new year for Bishop Thornton and Shaw Mills Women Institute members met at The Nelson on Skipton Road Harrogate for a meal. Sitting at a huge table to accommodate all the members the atmosphere was lively as the evening progressed. Mrs Stobbs the president managed to stop the conversations (hard to do with a group of chatty ladies) to inform members of current events and issues within the Women Institute. Newsletters were distributed and attention drawn to certain facts. The visit to Follifoot to join them at their Christmas party was especially enjoyed by the members. Particularly their version of a nativity produced by some members was very entertaining. The buffet supper was excellent and the warm atmosphere from Follifoot Institute was very much appreciated. Next meeting on February 4 we will be having a spa day at Nidd Hall. Discussions were plentiful as members chose treatments to have alongside the time in the gym and swimming pool. Members are hoping this event will break any doom and gloom with the weather and help mind and body during the winter months
