April meeting review

Apologies for the delay in posting this but here is is – better late than never – a review of City WI’s April meeting in Nottingham.

City WI are very lucky in that within our membership we have a superb range of people and talents. This month this was demonstrated by Charlotte McCarthy and Kate Watson who gave a talk on the heritage of Boots the Chemist. Two members of the Archive Team at Boots, Charlotte and Kate gave an insightful discussion on the history of the Nottingham-based company, brought along a few mystery objects and superb retro adverts (did you know that Boots used a picture of a handsome man lying on the beach in his swimwear to advertise lipstick!?) and even gave us a fun quiz! It was a really interesting evening and really great to learn more about such a great local company.

To conclude the meeting we asked members and guests to suggest ideas for our forthcoming programme – we received some superb suggestions and will be publishing the confirmed programme for 2010/2011 soon. Watch this space…
