We had a good time running a stall at the AGM of Bedfordshire County Federation of Women’s Institutes held this year at King’s House on Ampthill Road, Bedford. Lots of people looking, lots of people buying. We took all sorts of stock, you never know what people might buy on this sort of occasion, but this time around chocolate was the winner by a mile – but only large bars not small! In theory we had lots of time to set up the stall, in the event eager early arrivals meant volunteers Pauline and Lynn just had a moment or two to get their breath back before the fun began. You had to be quick as people could only shop during the prosecco break before the meeting and the coffee break between the AGM and the speaker.
