Constantine W.I. Annual Meeting

Barbara Willoughby

Considering the very rough weather our Annual Meeting on 10 February was very well attended. Thanks were given to all and our Secretary’s report reminded all members of the very varied meetings throughout the year, with outings, luncheons, walks etc – something to suit all tastes. Gifts and thanks were given to several retiring Committee members and helpers and three new Committee members were welcomed. Our President Liz Pearce was unanimously voted on for her second year.

Our new programme for this year was to be very varied, from making Willow Hearts to Chocolate Making with Cornish Gigs in between, but is now suspended. Business was concluded and was followed by a fun hour with a “Beetle Drive”. All members very competitively throwing the dice to try to be the first to make a “whole beetle”, the winners on each table moving on to start the next “beetle”. A fun and hectic time enjoyed by all.

In the March meeting Lynn Kentish from Lynn’s Willows gave a brief talk and demonstration on willow crafts. It was a fun evening with members enjoying the opportunity to make their own willow hearts. The hearts make lovely gifts or can be used as decorations in the home and garden.

Lynn was thanked for her time and coaching by Dominique.

Sadly because of concerns regarding Covid 19 virus (Coronavirus) it has become necessary to cancel all W.I. meetings and Soup and Pud events until further notice.
