By Margaret:  The speaker at the last meeting of Glossopdale Womens’ Institute was Ian Cheeseman who is a Sports Reporter for Radio Manchester.  Members were a little uncertain beforehand as to what to expect – after all, mainly retired ladies are not normally the most enthusiastic followers of sport – but Ian  gave us all a fascinating hour explaining  his ‘journey’  from  football-mad teenager to his dream job of Sports Reporter.  Amusing, informative and passionate about Manchester City he held us all enthralled for the duration of his talk.  Justifying a trip to the Hebrides for a City match which involved a stay of several days because of infrequent flights, he was required to develop a ‘blog’ about his experiences which proved so popular that he has continued with it ever since.  He certainly acquired some new fans at Glossopdale.

The next meeting is on Wednesday 16th April at 9.30am at the Labour Club, when we shall be having a visit from John Fellowes from Willow Wood Hospice.  All ladies are welcome to join us.
