‘War and Peace’ at Muckmore WI meeting

No story lives unless someone wants to listen, and that’s exactly what the ladies at Muckamore WI did at their latest meeting.

Guest speaker for the evening - storyteller Sharon Dickson dressed in her vintage wrapover wartime utility apron and her hair in a 1940’s headscarf acted out stories she heard when she was a young girl on the theme of war and peace and her tales of the Belfast Blitz in her monologue had the ladies in stitches.

Keeping to the theme, songwriter Geoff Hatt played his ukuleles and guitar and sang songs from the War era. A very talented musician, he had the ladies joining in and singing along with him.
