March 1945 - The first meeting took place with 37 members. A letter of welcome was read from Lady Denman chairman of the National Federation. 35 ladies enrolled and paid their subs of 2/6.

A ballot took place as there were two nominations for president – Mrs Daisy Martin was elected, she was the wife of the school headmaster and lived in the school house (The Beeches) now known as the Green Inn!

It was decided that "Jerusalem" be sung at the start of every meeting with the National Anthem at the close.
