On behalf of all of our members, thank you very much for your humorous and entertaining talk to us in Misson. One of the original aims of the WI was education, and I know that we all learnt something as well. As I said last night, our members are not slow with their feedback and your presentation was very much appreciated; thank you for all the time and effort you put into making an interesting and amusing evening. I hope that you had a good journey home and we look forward to a return visit.
