1:53pm Friday 4th April 2008 in Gt/Lt Totham
Great Totham Evening WI's speaker for the March meeting was Chris Winter who gave a hilarious talk entitled "Where there's a will there's a relative".
He has spent most of his life working as an undertaker walking in front of the hearse and has found many fascinating stories from the people he met and the gravestones he visited on his holidays all over the world.
The competition for an epitaph was won by Mrs Sue Pulford. The next meeting is on April 10 where the talk is "Count your Blessing"
and visitors are welcome.
