GAR­DEN­ING CLUB. The Gar­den­ing Club starts up again with an il­lus­trated talk from Ger­ald Price who is com­ing along to talk about An­cient Wood­land and he be­lieves that Gar­den­ing Clubs are one of the best au­di­ences who can read­ily as­so­ciate with many of the is­sues and chal­lenges fac­ing this valu­able re­source.

Ger­ald says that wood­land is not just about trees but also mul­ti­ple habi­tats for wildlife.

Did we know that with tree cover of just 13 per cent, the UK is well be­low the world av­er­age of 30 per cent. Or that only a fifth of our wood­land is classed as an­cient.

Ger­ald will talk about the work of the Wood­land Trust and there will be a men­tion of the fu­ture and par­tic­u­larly the pro­posed Tree Char­ter to be launched in Novem­ber on the 800th an­niver­sary of the Carta de Foresta which was an ap­pen­dix to the Magna Carta. So an in­ter­est­ing talk on many lev­els.

The Gar­den­ing Club will meet on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 20, at 7.30pm in the Gap at the back of the Barrow upon Soar Bap­tist Church in Beveridge Street. I think there is a prom­ise of some­thing for all and ev­ery­body is very wel­come, guests and visi­tors on the night just £3.

QUORN WOMEN’S INSTITUTE. It has been an­nounced that the next Fed­er­a­tion An­nual Coun­cil Meet­ing will be at Brunt­ingth­orpe in a much larger venue to al­low more mem­bers to at­tend. The main speaker is to be Es­ther Rantzen so no doubt a lot of us will want to go to hear her speak.

The next Craft Club will be on 4th Oc­to­ber when Sue Wain­wright will be demon­strat­ing Can­vas Work. An ex­tra Glass Fu­sion work­shop has also been ar­ranged. Next year’s Craft pro­gramme is well in hand and promises some new things to try.

Lunch Club and Walk­ing Club ar­range­ments are in hand and ar­range­ments for the Christ­mas din­ner at Beau­manor have been fi­nalised.

Bob Harding Jones was the speaker. He has col­lected po­ems, anec­dotes and tales of coun­try folk and trav­elled to speak to us from Hert­ford­shire.

His tales were, of course, based around the vil­lages of Hert­ford­shire, but vil­lages are much the same all over Eng­land, and Quorn has had its share of ec­centrics and quaint cus­toms too as those of us who were brought up in the vil­lage can tes­tify!

He told us of “Lucy” who sold (guess what!) elas­tic and al­ways made sure she stretched it when sell­ing it so no-one ever re­ceived a proper yard!

There were many other such tales and po­ems and Bob was thanked for trav­el­ling so far to come and talk to us.
