LEANNE Hodgetts from Croome Cuisine was the speaker at Eckington WI July’s meeting. She explained how the business evolved, how they created their cheeses and their hopes for the future. She brought samples of their various cheeses for us to try and buy; we all took up the offer of tasting and enjoyed some wonderful cheeses. After a break for refreshments, it was down to business. Reports received on recent trips and reminders about our forthcoming summer events, including Coffee Morning, Lunch Club, Snowshill Lavender Fields, Kemerton Lake Walk and the cruise. It’s going to a busy few weeks till our next meeting on September 6 when our speaker will be talking to us about bats! We will be meeting at Eckington Village Hall 7:30pm; visitors welcome £4.
