OUR Novem­ber meet­ing was the first to be chaired by the new pres­i­dent, Susan Whit­worth, who was given a round of ap­plause to wel­come her into the role after many years as trea­surer.

She was also thanked for the suc­cess­ful plough­man’s lunch held at her home. This not only raises funds but pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for smaller groups to meet and so­cialise. Mem­bers were thanked for re­spond­ing gen­er­ously to the Sa­mar­i­tan’s Purse ap­peal this year by pro­vid­ing 27 shoe­boxes filled with small gifts for chil­dren around the world in need of support. Carol Sul­li­van, step­ping into a vacancy at very short no­tice, then gave us a colour­ful demon­stra­tion of mak­ing at­trac­tive Christ­mas ta­ble dec­o­ra­tions. She used a won­der­ful va­ri­ety of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate some gor­geous dis­plays. Green­ery, cones, ap­ples, dried or­anges, bark, poin­set­tia leaves and roses were ar­ranged in con­tain­ers and placed on ta­bles for our in­spec­tion. She kindly do­nated them as the af­ter­noon’s raf­fle prizes, mak­ing it a bumper lot­tery.
