Christmas Wreath Making
The weather during the day had been atrocious. This meant some members of Asby WI were reluctant to travel through the resulting flooded areas in the evening making numbers lower than usual.
This was a pity because the evening was rather special. Members were recognising 95 years of WI in the village for which a surprise celebratory cake had been commissioned. The cake, which was both very good to look at and to eat(!), was made and decorated by 14 year old Charlotte Marston from Catherine Holme. Maud Holder, currently longest serving member of Asby WI, cut the cake. She was also hostess for the evening with Barbara Askew.
Following business matters and refreshments Louise Reeve led those present in making Christmas wreaths. Using nine lengths of willow the wreath base was formed and then decorated with greenery, ribbons, fir cones etc. Members’ concentration was such that at times there was utter silence in the village hall!
The raffle and competition for a Christmas table decoration were both won by new member Sheila Flint.
