We have restarted our WI and have held our first meetings in the hall following afternoon tea in Christine’s garden in August and another afternoon tea at the upfront gallery for Joyce’s birthday celebration in September. In October we had Margaret Rees who gave a talk and demonstration about “the last straw” – corn dollies. Some members had a go too. November saw Geoff Hine Chair of the Northern Fells Group tell us all about the charity and its work – amazing how they help the areas inhabitants – men’s shed in Caldbeck to name one – noted for their bacon rolls.
December – we meet early this month as the 1st Wednesday is the 1st December. We have local florist Sally Pigg coming to demonstrate Christmas floral ideas. Our meeting starts at the temporary time of 7pm and seasonal refreshments will be served. We look forward to seeing you there.
We have time off until February 2022. We are giving members time to have Christmas and all it entails and recover from all the celebrations before having to meet up again. The hope is that by having a break it will keep covid away and members will be happy to meet up again in February. We shall have our festive lunch in March/April rather than January. Details of our 2022 programme are to be published in January.
Stay safe everyone and Merry Christmas and all the best for a very healthy 2022.
