The Latest News From Around Capel

Capel W.I June Update

In February Norman Greenwood gave a very interesting, informative and sometimes eye-opening view ..of his time with the NSPCC as an inspector.

In March Marie Brown from Inheritance Legal Services Limited in Cambridge gave us a very interesting and thoughtful provoking talk about Legal Advice in Later Years. This covered Wills, Power of Attorney and briefly touched on Inheritance Tax.

Suffragettes were the subject of our talk by Kathy Atherton from Dorking Museum in April. It was a very interesting and in-depth talk from which we learned all about the Pankhursts and also Emmeline and Fred Pethick-Lawrence who were strong campaigners for women’s votes. They lived in the “Dutch House ” (formerly the “Mascot”) in South Holmwood until they had to leave in 1921. Several of our members know the house and recognised many names from past families in surrounding villages.

On the 17th May, Rosemary introduced the two Resolutions for the evening, Avoid Food Waste, Address Food Poverty and Appropriate Care in Hospitals for People With Dementia. After members putting their views on both subjects and expressing their views, we were asked to vote accordingly.

After this it was refreshment time, which is always very welcome, and then Rosemary had organised a quiz which was very brain taxing but good fun and when the answers were announced we realised were how clever we really were!!!
