A Good Read: We have a lively Book Group whose members take it in turns to nominate a book for everyone to read, and they then usually meet up in four or five weeks' time to discuss their thoughts. At the moment these discussions are taking place via email and today the group awarded four stars to 'Once Upon a River' by Diane Setterfield. The ladies are now going to read 'Brideshead Revisited' by Evelyn Waugh; did you watch the original television adaptation in the early 1980s? If you've read all the books on your shelf in recent weeks, why not give our choice a try and see what you think?
Flower of the Month Competition: Every month at our meeting we hold a competition for members to bring a single flower that they have grown. In May the competition took place via email. This months winners are pictured to the left
Keep Calm...(and Keep Crafting): The ladies who attend our monthly Craft Afternoons have been keeping their needles, hooks and sewing machines busy by making a wide variety of craft items. Some of these are shown in the slideshow of photographs at the top of the page and demonstrate our members' wide range of skills. In addition, two of our members have been keeping their sewing machines busy by making sets of 'scrubs' for the NHS.
Coronavirus: In these unprecedented times Millbridge WI, like every other organisation in the country (and throughout most of the rest of the world) has had to cancel its meetings and other activities. However, not everything we do has had to grind to a halt. Our Flower of the Month competition, which usually takes place at our meetings, is being held via email. Those members who attend Book Club are continuing to read novels and are having their discussions about them online, and the Craft Group are being encouraged to share photographs of their current works in progress. Watch this space....and keep well.
