On Monday 10 July our speaker was Debi Evans who told us about her inspiration for writing her children’s books. We learnt about her rescue dog, Rolo, and his time-travelling adventures which involved him in many significant episodes in history! We were also amused by her tales about her interest in dragons and how the series of stories ‘The Secret Society of Dragon Protectors’ came about.
Thank you to Yvonne for holding the meeting in her lovely garden on our last meeting of the summer. Also thanks to Cathie and Yvonne for the great refreshments –strawberry cream teas – perfect! The competition, flower of the season, was won by Marion with Carol and Georgina coming equal second.
Our next meeting is Monday 11 September in the Village Hall when we will be trying our hand at painting on ceramics with Sandy Green. On Wednesday 9 August we will be joining Ashton Keynes WI for a short walk of about 30 to 40 minutes around one of the lakes. If you are interested please get in touch.
We are now on minety.net so, if you lose the newsletter, you can catch up with us there.
Visitors are always welcome. If you are interested and don’t want to come on your own we can always arrange to meet you on arrival or pick you up and bring you to the meeting.

It was rather wet on Wednesday 9th August when eight of us met Ashton Keynes WI for our annual walk, after meeting at the Boathouse we had a delightful walk round the lake and then back to the Boathouse for lunch. Thank you to Ashton Keynes for organizing the walk and lunch, just a shame it wasn’t a better day as far as the weather was concerned.

On Monday 11th September at 7.30pm in the committee room of the Village Hall Sandy Green is coming back to do a Painting on Ceramics class with us. If you don’t want to paint, do still come along for a chat and cup of tea, visitors are also welcome to come and have a dabble at painting, you may surprise yourself.
We have a competition this month it is a Holiday Souvenir.

We are now onhttp://www.minety.net so if you lose the news letter you can catch up with us there.

Visitors are always welcome, if you are interested and don’t want to come on your own, we can always arrange to meet you on arrival or pick you up and bring you to the meeting.
