Creekside’s Report for May
President Ann Parker welcomed members with a special mention for Pat Murphy who was visiting from East Cowes.
There was a very special button hole for Margaret Paice who was celebrating 60 years of marriage, 'Congratulations!'
Members were invited to comment on some of the activities they had enjoyed last month. The Northshore Group Meeting was well attended. The speaker was Judy Anderson who gave an inspiring talk about Great Ormond Street Hospital, its history and the breakthrough work carried out today. £190.70 was raised through individual members' contributions. Appley WI came for a Kurling evening. They were a 'super crowd', ready for a bit of fun and after another delicious meal created by Jenny Gâches and her team, we certainly did have fun!
It was 'lovely to meet' the members from Berkswell WI who were visiting the beautiful Isle of Wight from the mainland. 'We all thoroughly enjoyed it!'
Before the meeting began and during Tea, there was an opportunity to look at the various beautiful entries for our Craft Competition. There was a variety of categories and the smell from the cakes and pastries was mouth watering. Cushions for mastectomy patients, Heidi's Pillows, knitted newborn babies' hats, flower arranging and a Novice category for anyone who had not entered before were just a few. A spin off from the craft entries was a challenge to make 100 hats for newborns.
