But as well as all that we had a PowerPoint presentation by a paramedic from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in the morning and found out lots of things we didn't know about their wonderful organisation.
The afternoon speaker was Lesley Smith as "Mistress Shakespeare" and she had us in stitches with her tales of life in Shakespeare's times. She has spoken at the Annual Meeting several times before and she never fails to have us "rolling in the aisles" with her hysterical portrayals of historical characters!
There was also a competition entitled "Seasons - any one will do" when members had been asked to make something demonstrating any craft technique they wanted. The Judge's 1st choice was a lovely collection of little dolls with tiny hats portraying Easter/Spring time. But the Judge's 2nd choice was a small 3D wallhanging portraying Summer made by a member of Harden WI. The judging was then thrown open to the members and the Harden entry was the overwhelming winner gaining more than twice as many votes as any of the others.
