November 2019 Meeting
Our November meeting was quite productive as we had a visiting demonstrator showing us the technique for making decorative garlands using the traditional Swiss craft of fabric folding and fixing. Several of our members also started making their own garlands and other members had the opportunity to make a hanging Christmas decoration from felt.
We are holding a members’ coffee morning on Tuesday, 19th November meeting at 10.30am at The Duchess of Cornwall, Poundbury.
Although there is no formal meeting in December, members who have pre-booked are celebrating Christmas with a meal out at The Thimble Inn, Piddletrenthide. The menu looks delicious and it should be a lovely get together.
A group of our members are also looking forward to attending the Dorset Federation of WI’s Carol Festival at historic Sherborne Abbey at the beginning of December when two of our members are taking part in the choir.
Our next formal meeting will be on 8th January 2020 at 10am in Watts Room, Herrison Hall. Please note we have moved the meeting for just the January meeting from the first to the second Wednesday of the month as the first Wednesday is New Year’s Day.
We have an entertainer with a Spanish guitar so please come along and join in the singing.
Charlton Down WI currently have places available for new members. If you know of someone who would like to join us, please let them know they are welcome to come along to our January meeting as a visitor. Alternatively, email for further information firstname.lastname@example.org.
