Cleaning up the science of soap

CAISTOR WI had a very interesting talk and demonstration on the science of soap making for their April meeting.

Katie Hewis spoke of the history of soap and what goes into it.

Members were able to choose a mould, colour and perfume and make a little soap to take home. They also took part in a fun guess the scent quiz.

Flower of the month was won by Wendy Handford, with Jenny Foster second and Jane Starling third. The competition for an unusual soap was won by Judith Hewis, with Rachel Grainger second and Mary Shaw third.

The next meeting will be on May 3 in the town hall at 7.30pm, when it will be resolutions and pudding club.

Everyone is asked to wear red, white and blue at this meeting for the Queen’s Jubilee Celebration.

New members and visitors are always welcome.
