She also informed members about the 2015 banner being framed.
Elizabeth Brereton, Book Club Leader informed the members about some of the variety of books that the Book Club have enjoyed this year too. Some of which provoked lively discussions about the different opinions amongst the group.
Members were reminded about plans for the W.I. Tombola Stall at Tarvin's Christmas Market, the Christmas Lunch at Willington Hall in December and The Girls Musical at the Lowry in January.

SUSAN BARKER 3D DECOUPAGE PICTURES AND HANDS ON CARD MAKING.
It was at this point members could relax and get involved with making their own Christmas card after a demonstration by Susan who guided us through each step of the process. It proved to be a delightful experience. Team working at each table was the order of the day as we each checked with each other we were doing it right. It was very therapeutic and quite satisfying to complete the finished product. You could say it was child's play!
THE EVENING DRAWS TO A CLOSE.......
After the card making we were treated to a glass of mulled wine, (or two) shortbread and fruit loaf while members arranged activities with old friends and new and finally the evening ended on quite a high note.
