The first meeting of the new season of the St Andrews Women's Group took place on Wednesday 4th September in the Parish Room and was a great success.
Led by our speaker Rev Barbara King, the business part of the AGM was over very quickly so time then to relax with a glass of wine and a brainteaser of a quiz. This tested our knowledge of nursery rhymes from our childhood and proved that our memories were still working well. Our voices too were tested when we managed to sing in harmony and in the round. With 5 tables of ladies all singing different parts this was no mean feat.
Barbara then took us along a nostalgic journey of poetry from A A Milne through to modern day poets. Her great skill at delivering these familiar, and sometimes unfamiliar poems, brought back childhood memories and introduced us to some poignant and meaningful new works. Our thanks to Barbara for a very enjoyable and sociable evening.
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday 2nd October at 7.30pm in the Parish Room when our speaker will be Liz Weston who will introduce us to the next chapter in "The Life of a Common Woman". Liz is always an amusing and entertaining speaker and we look forward to her return visit.
A warm welcome is extended to anyone who would like to come along to our open meetings for an enjoyable evening with good company and refreshments.
