our President reminded us about the 80th Birthday celebrations
of our Institute. Other organisations in the village are to
be invited to join us for the dinner and entertainment on Saturday
27th April in the village hall. Amongst forthcoming County events
are the Annual Federation meeting at Stoneleigh Park on the
20th March, two Serious Science talks and the Speakers selection
evening on the 29th April. Also on offer is an outing to Jodrell
Bank. Ann Farr has stood down from the Creative Activities sub
committee but will still continue with occasional work shops.
member Jacky Legge was the speaker for the evening. Jacky brought
along a large assortment of beads and wires together with a
selection of jewellery that she had made from these. An amazing
necklace made from knitted wire and beads. The necklace had
been knitted as you would using wool and knitting needles. The
wire was very fine and pliable.Jacky was hoping that members
would "Have a go for themselves" Some members did
have a go at the necklace although it would have taken a lot
longer than the time available to produce the completed article.
Other members made bracelets and pendants using wire ,beads
and buttons. Jacky has been practising her hobby for about 18
months and has produced some very pretty objects. Her talk was
very inspiring and some members may have another go for themselves.
We have a lot of talent amongst our members and perhaps we will
have another "home grown" evening.
meeting will be Wednesday March 13 when Gwen Zanzottera will
tell us "Why I go topless around Stratford!". This
meeting is open to non members
