Festive Soup and Pud Lunch

We finished 2019 in style with a very Festive Soup and Pud Lunch when the Hall was bursting at the seams. Our Christmas meal was at Polurrian Hotel, a Carol Service at Constantine with our Group W.Is, Mawnan Smith, Budock Vean and friends, was very well attended.

Members and friends also enjoyed a coach outing to see the Christmas Lights around West Cornwall, with Supper at The Meadery, Penzance. Such a festive end to our year. So Happy New Year to you all and Thank You for your support.

Our first meeting on January 13 was very wet and windy outside but “welcoming” inside and Mr John Bastin spoke to us on “Dynamic DNA” – not inspiring you may think but surprisingly, all our members joined in with “question time” and opinions throughout the evening. It was agreed that there were moral and ethical issues raised with the discovery of DNA and so far it has mainly been used to help with medical issues, how cells work, reproduction, prevention of diseases etc. But how far should it be allowed to go – producing perfection in everything, humans, animals, food products etc. There are already cloned animals, and genetically modified food crops, what happens next?? It was a very interesting evening with many questions raised!! Mr Bastin was warmly thanked by Dominique.

Our next meeting on 10 February is our Annual Meeting followed by Tea and Chat. Our Soup and Pud will be on 24 February, something to keep the chill out of Winter months. On 9 March we have Lynn Kentish helping us all make a Willow Heart, a lovely gift for somebody. All our meetings are on the 2nd Monday in the month starting at 7. 15pm and Soup and Puds during Win- ter months are usually the 4th Monday each month, from 12 noon, look out for posters in village to confirm and on W I Hall Notice Board.

We welcome guests and visitors every month and look forward to seeing you.
