WI had a very busy time last week, on Wednesday 25th it was our monthly meeting. The speaker was Don Rustage who gave us an insight into 'The path to the First World War'

He kept us entertained all evening and bought with him some memorabilia from the 1914 — 1918 war to show us. This included a rifle which members were surprised at it's weight and a small mirror which was used to attach to a bayonet to see what was going on above the trench the soldier was in. A lively questions and answer session took place after the talk.

On Saturday we took part in Tarvin Fete by setting up and manning a display of craft made by WI members. This included 28 different crafts, some examples being tatting, toy making and embroidery.

Just to keep up the WI tradition a jar of jam was also included. The stall was manned during the afternoon by Tarvin WI members who talked to people visiting the hall about the crafts displayed and the possibility of joining a WI.

We look forward seeing some of them again at our next WI meeting when the speaker will be Julie Graham on Canine Partners.

We had a name the doll competition during the afternoon and this was won by Ellie Larkin ' Margaret Dixon's granddaughter.Well done Ellie, she named the doll Heidi.

Unlike many or our neighbouring villages, Tarvin has had no maps on display of our historic village centre Conservation Area. Tarvin Civic Trust thought that posting a display somewhere in the village centre might fit the bill. We considered display boards of all shapes and sizes but where would we put them? Then we lit on the idea of posting a display on the back window of the bus shelter...

Well after a long day working at the hairdressers on Saturday a Sri Lankan takeaway from the Manor house (previously known as Jessops) was just what I needed, and it was delicious. Not knowing much about the cuisine and had never previously eaten any I was intrigued to give it a try. It turns out that Sri Lankan cuisine has been formed over the years from many different factors...
