Box W.I. - January 2017

Our AGM in November was very well attended and a new committee elected. We welcomed two new members, Susan Dew and Gill Edgell and thanked Penny Kendall, who stood down this year, for her time on the committee.

After the business, we had some light relief making paper Christmas Wreaths, organised by Shani Wills and Jane Large. These were made of leaves cut out from colourful paper, glued to a ring base. The result was amazing! (even my husband was impressed when he saw my handiwork, and that takes some doing!) We thank Shani and Jane very much for the time they spent in preparing for the workshop – lots of cutting out!

In December, we held our Christmas lunch at The Clothiers Arms, which was a very sociable event, together with a number of husbands, who swelled the numbers to 28 people.

Our first meeting of 2017 will be on Tuesday 10th January. The topic is a Hands-on Quiz by Sandra Ashenford, identifying objects of interest. The competition is any item beginning with the letter K.

Meetings at Box Village Hall are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 10am business, coffee at 10.30am followed by a speaker. Visitors are warmly welcomed at 10.30am - £3 including coffee.
