  Holt WI "ode" for February 2020

 So January started with wind and with rain

But Holt’s loyal ladies were meeting again,

Pausing the speakers to try something new:

A craft evening promised a challenge or two.

Under the guidance of Val and of Chris,

Most efforts were finished, not too much amiss.

And this is the start of our current phase,

Past our centenary, through winter days,

We meet as before in Holt Village Hall,

For fun and for learning, for friendship, for all.

 

Our plans are afoot for lunches and trips,

To learn from recycling, good tips from tips.

Visiting gardens, a favourite treat,

Time on a narrow boat, locks to complete.

We sponsor rugby, we help the food bank,

Always a vast range of speakers to thank.

Ongoing campaigns will focus our minds

On living sustainably, helping mankind.

Or saving our bus routes, a laudable aim,

Or tacking loneliness, ill-health or shame.

 

This year’s ambitions include worthy drives

To root out slavery; yes, it survives,

Its evil pervasive abroad and at home,

Although it should be in an old history tome.

Also, we’re starting a very close scan

Of the crash dummy, always a man.

They are not designed for our height or our frame

For front seat exposure is just not the same.

 

That all sounds so serious, but, as a crew,

We’ve laughter and charity, a potent brew.

So why don’t you join us, and meet Eileen,

Pat, Chris and Sylvia, Jane and Irene,

Gill, Gill and Margaret, Penny and Dot,

Sally, Kate, Val and Joy; give it a shot.

Come and meet tall Denise, Jean, Jean and Jean,

We’d love to welcome you to our nineteen.
