ST. MARY'S LADIES GROUP

Our last meeting in March took the form of an antiques quiz. Messrs. Homer and Grundy of Dickinson, Davy and Markham [DDM estate agents] brought along 20 items ranging from furniture arid pottery to fancy goods and silverware. Members formed groups of 3 - 6 people and each of the 20 items were numbered and inspected. Members had to decide a) What each item was; b) Year of manufacture; c) Value of each item. Mr Homer surprised us with the correct answers! Members were also invited to take along any item they thought might be of interest or value and Mr homer gave the benefit of his expert opinion.
At our first meeting in April, 22 members heard Mrs. Brogden of Sounthorpe talk about 114 of her collection of dolls. Each doll represented a particular person and ranged from Henry VIII and his wives right up to the wedding of the Prince and Princess of Wales. Mrs Brogden proved she was a historian as well as a comretent needlewoman as she gave details of each "doll's" life. It was a very colourful and interesting evening.
