Alpacas, plants and Rainbows
Woolly women - Wools from Alpacas with a talk and demonstration by Denise Barritt will be on the agenda at the WI meeting in the Town Hall on Monday, April 14, at 7.30pm.
Visitors are always welcome to join the audience and the charge is £3, which includes a buffet supper.
Community gardeners - Two new members and two visitors were welcomed to the recent meeting, when Colin and Karen Ward were speakers.
They had taken along a wide variety of the rare and exotic plants they specialise in at their Swine’s Meadow Nursery in Market Deeping.
The couple, whose topic was ‘A Plantsmans Choice’, have developed their specialist nursery over the last ten years and they discussed each plant from their large collection in turn while answering the questions they invited with knowledge and humour.
Rainbows Roundup - Recent meetings have been full of fun, bringing the term to a wonderful end.
Firstly, they made chocolates for Mothering Sunday, with a fun and messy evening enjoyed by all.
And as they arranged them in specially made boxes, they looked so professional - equal to what could be purchased from the shops.
The following week the girls made Easter Cards and had fun with an Easter Egg and spoon race.
The overall winner was Luccia McKee, who was awarded with an Easter bonnet and all the trimmings to decorate it, with second place going to Kaitlin Bell, who was awarded a medal.
And all the girls went home with a “One Direction” Easter Egg plus an extra special egg holder from California.
Rainbows resumes on April 28 and there are currently a few spaces.
