We had our Christmas meal along with our ‘plus one’s’. It was a lovely evening with an extraordinarily generous raffle, with prizes donated from the members. They also made the desserts, which were absolutely delicious. The buffet catered for all dietary requirements and was also delicious. With quizzes, bubbles being blown and a musical challenge, a good time was had by all. Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas.
Our Craft workshop day was wonderful. We had such a great time, meeting fellow crafters from Banningham, Cromer, Aylmerton, Roughton and other villages and towns in North Norfolk.
We made driftwood houses. Oh this was great! Sawing, cutting, painting, sticking… and fantastic results.
We did needle felting. Total beginners all, but the results were amazing. Really good! We had foxes, sheep and even ghosts (well, we are coming up to hallowe’en!)
There was also book making. A complicated workshop, but oh! the results were wonderful!
Or there was covered box making. What a great present for someone…… trouble was that we all wanted to keep our boxes, we liked them so much. But now we know how to make them we can make more for presents for other people.
On a very hot August day we had our practise workshop for making driftwood houses. We’ve had practise workshops for all the workshops in preparation for the Craft Workshops on October 11th. It’s been great to be learning new skills.
In July we did a quick visit to Norfolk Lavender to see if was a possibility for a WI visit next year. It absolutely was! It was a very hot day, but we loved it!
The outing to the Sheringham Mo museum was absolutely fascinating. The tea and cakes afterwards weren’t bad either! Climbing up to the look out point in the tower was hard work, but the views were spectacular!
We had an ‘Afternoon Tea On The Lawn’ this afternoon. What a lovely event! What amazing cakes!!
