Thursday January 9th saw the first birthday of North Bovey Belles W.I.  They celebrated with a birthday cake and sparkly drinks (or tea if you preferred).  Their first year has been successful and has laid the foundations for a thriving W.I.  An exciting programme for the whole year has been prepared with many speakers planned to speak on diverse topics.  A copy of the programme is available on request – or watch this space.

The speaker at this month’s meeting was Sally Jackson who is a Nutrition Coach specialising in problems with the ‘gut’.  Her interest began when as a nurse she helped people cope with problems such as diabetes. She started to wonder whether the treatment they were offering was actually doing more harm than good. She then studied the topic further and has come to realise that the gut is responsible for many of our general ailments and how important the role of microbiome in our gut is to our general health.  Then followed a discussion on what foods are good for our microbiome. 

Later this month, on 25th January, North Bovey Belles W.I. are hosting a coffee morning at the Community Centre in Moretonhampstead at 10am with the aim of raising the profile of this new W.I. group, to encourage new members to join, to advertise their programme and at the same time to raise funds to finance additional interesting events during this coming year. Do come along and join us for a cuppa and a piece of cake.
