16th November
Brr it's very cold today, which brings me to the gardening meeting which I am pleased to say we held indoors. Typically our November meeting is a craft session and today was no different. Previously we have made wreaths and garlands from greenery primarily from our gardens and this year to ring the changes our speaker showed us how to make a wreath with a difference as it was decorated with sweets and ribbon or tinsel, sound strange? Not a bit of it ,the end results looked lovely, suitable for everyone depending on the type of sweets used. We had some very positive feedback from the members who attended. There was a range of extra decorations that members could buy at quite reasonable prices. We were also shown two or three more traditional wreaths for comparison. Overall a great session giving opportunity to learn and socialize.
