Kings Bromley WI

The Kings Bromley WI will be celebrating their 90th Birthday this year so we have lots to look forward to, including a village bake off and a big Birthday bash. We had some new members to greet from the neighbouring Alrewas WI who sadly closed after 100 years.

We started our meeting with the usual business and then had a visual presentation from Norman Rubines, a photographer with over 40 years experience. He owns and runs the Ruby Studios in Tamworth. He told us about how he started out as a newspaper photographer and now has his own studio. He had a fabulous display of photos to exhibit and showed us lots of images from photo shoots, alongside a little history and some funny stories. It was very engaging and easy to see how he was a prize-winning photographer. We saw a recent series of photos raising money for Prostate Cancer UK, called Men in Black (and white).

We held a raffle and then enjoyed some social time. The next meeting will be held at the Royal Oak with a meal on 7th February from 7pm.
