SOUTH NORMANTON: Living on a barge is theme of talk to WI

Have your say

The October meeting of South Normanton WI was held at the Post Mill Centre, South Normanton.

Announcements included details for a forthcoming trip to Thorntons, next year’s theatre trip and requests for jams, chutneys, cakes and crafts to sell at the WI’s stall at Pinxton Victorian market on November 23, as well as volunteers to help run the stall.

The guest speaker was Suzie Litton-Wood who talked about her time living and working on a barge and how the barges were decorated with roses and castles. Suzie then demonstrated how to paint the roses and other flowers then let members practice the technique before decorating a paper plate with the new skills they acquired.

The monthly raffle raised £15.

The next meeting will be the AGM and will be held on November 20. The WI meets every third Wednesday, new members and visitors are welcome. For more information, contact Glenis on 07580635589.
