Hopefully all members are staying safe and well, whilst enjoying the summer weather.
We are still hoping it won’t be too long before we can resume our monthly meetings, but until then members have been enjoying several social gatherings in the Wenvoe Arms garden. Another date is planned for some time in August so we hope the weather will continue to be kind on our chosen date.
In the July/August edition of WI Life we were introduced to our new National Federation Chair Anne Jones. Retiring Chair Lynne Stubbings delivered a landmark speech at the historic Annual Meeting on 8th June, with guest speakers HRH the Countess of Wessex, Dame Cressida Dick and Baroness Hale. They all gave uplifting talks which contributed towards the overwhelming success of the meeting.
The magazine also included various interesting articles such as the Federation of Wales Conference, All Hands On Deck, Meet the Toad Patrol and the story of a former ballerina who has now turned to sewing.
Recently our thoughts and prayers have been with our Secretary, Pam and her family, as Pam sadly lost her brother at the end of June.
We are still looking forward to seeing any photographs members have of “Sunflowers in Bloom”. They will be most welcome for our ongoing scrapbook and for our contribution towards the WI archives.
If you are celebrating a birthday in August please accept our warmest wishes for that special day.
We would like to extend many congratulations to our member Avril and her husband Jeff on the occasion of their Golden Wedding Anniversary at the end of August.
If you know of any member celebrating a special occasion or special birthday please let Madeleine (20593212) or Pam (20592621) know.
Until we meet again stay well, stay safe and stay in touch – it’s good to talk.
