Choles­bury-cum-St Leonards WI

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

AT the March meet­ing we had a very jolly and pro­duc­tive evening mak­ing jew­ellery for our­selves.

Ca­rina Sher­gold brought along a great se­lec­tion of beads, all colours, shapes and sizes, and imag­i­na­tions went to work as we sorted through them and made our selections, aided by some very use­ful ad­vice from Ca­rina to help us with our cre­ations.

We were each pro­vided with a rec­tan­gu­lar pad on which to as­sem­ble our choice, al­low­ing us to de­cide upon the length of neck­lace or bracelet, or shape of ear­ring, and to re-ar­range our beads as the pat­terns emerged and we re­trieved the beads from the floor. Af­ter thread­ing our work we handed over to Ca­t­rina who put on the clasps while we had a cup of cof­fee and con­tin­ued with other WI news.

The Group Meet­ing will be in Wen­dover on April 21 (the day of the Queen’s 90th birth­day), the An­nual Coun­cil Meet­ing will take place on April 27 in Ayles­bury and Maids Moreton WI are host­ing a Ram­ble and Lunch on May 21.

The sched­ule was avail­able for the WI Co-op­er­a­tive Com­pe­ti­tion to be held at the County Show on Septem­ber 1, where “Tea for the Queen” is the theme for en­tries, and the al­lo­ca­tion date was given out for a day visit to Den­man Col­lege in Septem­ber.

One of our mem­bers had at­tended the In­ves­ti­ga­tion and Dis­cov­ery Day held re­cently in Ayles­bury and said that it had been very good. And since our meet­ing, the re­sults of our jew­ellery mak­ing have been worn and ad­mired at lo­cal events.

There is an arts and de­sign theme to our next meet­ing too as we are go­ing to learn about the life and work of Charles Ren­nie Mack­in­tosh, look out for our posters and notices.
