Women’s Institute

Ladies – don’t forget the next WI meeting – tomorrow Thursday 17th. Guest Speaker Roy Pawsey will be giving an account of ‘Night Shift at York Minster’. Starts at 7.30pm.

New members will be given a warm welcome. Alternatively why not give it a try out as a guest (£3 on the night).

Calling all budding (and seasoned) photographers !

Are there any keen amateur photographers out there? Want to improve and share your photography skills in a friendly environment? If so, i am looking at setting up a local photo group. The following are some initial ideas around what the Group would/might/could do :

  • Share Information, Experience and Tips for Better Photography
  • Organise Local Photo Walks and visits to sites of interest
  • Invite Guest Speakers / Organise ‘Show and Tell’ Sessions
  • Create a Gallery of Local Interest Photos (show them on the website or maybe even publish a book!)
  • Help other local groups and clubs by doing some pics for them
  • Discuss Equipment and Techniques, web resources, software etc.
  • Organise Competitions and Photo Challenges
  • Share Equipment
  • Have fun !

I’d expect to meet around once a month, maybe slightly more frequently in the summer months.

If you are interested drop me an email : amfawcett@gmail.com or give me a call on (01904) 468020

If we can get at least half a dozen together we’ll give it a go !

Saturday Social

Hey what a good morning, organised by the Parish Council a fair few organisations were represented. Apart from the Village Hall other tables were occupied by the Parish Council, Heritage Group, Garden Club, WI, Women in Harmony, the Church and the Parish Website.
There was hand bell ringing in the Meeting room (lovely sound), and a book swap table that did a roaring trade.
The website peeps had a lot of interest; the website was live in the hall and visitors added comments, put on some jokes, entered their email addresses to receive updates from the website (this is quite separate from the community email list) and enjoyed a virtual tour round the villages!
Once again those who did not turn up missed a real treat, there was a real friendly buzz in the air and there was talk of doing it again in the new year.

Oh and the goodies to go with the excellent coffee were scrumptious, thanks to all who made them!
