AFWI Fashion Show - 9th October 2009

The Anglesey Federation of Women's Institutes held a fashion show in Talwrn Village Hall to raise funds for the Federation. Delyth Jones transformed the hall with a professional lit catwalk, delicate drapes and floral arrangements. Refreshments were served by gentlemen wearing evening (black tie) suits.

Stunning attire from the Menai Bridge boutique "Elsa" were displayed by five models. Some of the key features to be aware of for Autumn Winter 2009 appear to be tweeds, velvet trousers, large brooches and different shaped hem-lines.

Quiz Night - 8th October 2009

Gwyngyll Women's Institute invited the Talwrn Lite WI ladies to provide a team at their evening quiz, held in the Llanfairpwll WI hall. Thanks to Marge, we were called the "Talwrn Totties"! Talwrn Lite came joint third with three other teams. The refreshments were lovely - especially the cakes. Thanks for a great evening Gwyngyll.

Meeting - Wednesday 7th October 2009

Can you believe that a year has passed since the initial meeting to see if the village of Talwrn wanted a Women's Institute. At the October meeting, the members celebrated with Bucks Fizz and birthday cake.

At this meeting, fellow Talwrn Lite member Pam Holt provided a lively demonstration on making a no-cook cake which could be used at Christmas. In true Blue Peter tradition Pam unveiled a cake she made earlier and issued the challenge of "Guess the alcohol in the cake"!
