Talwrn Village Christmas Fayre 2010

The Tawrn Lite WI ladies assisted at the Village Christmas Fayre, serving refreshements and running the tombola stall.
Due to the snowy weather conditions it didn't seem to be as busy as previous years. All the same, the Tombola stall was cleared of goodies a little more than an hour into the event!

70's Theme Christmas Party 2010

Well here is the evidence of our 70's theme Christmas party. We had a fantastic evening, with themed food of Melon boats, chicken & chips, black forest gateaux, arctic roll or vinetta, mince pies, coffee and after eightes. There was Mateus Rose wine, Snowballs and Babycham to drink. Each member took small goodie bag away with them containing Flying Saucers, Love Hearts, Refreshers and Black Jacks. President Delyth Jones gave each member a gift of hand-made soap.
Huge thanks to Delyth for doing the shopping etc, to Linda for providing the veggie option and to Adrian and Tony for cooking and serving the food. If it wasn't for these people the night would have not been the success it turned out to be!

Christmas Wreath & Tree Festival & Fayre

The Anglesey WI Federation organised a Christmas Wreath & Tree competition at their Christmas fair on 27th November. The brief for the competition was to use artificial materials.

A group of Talwrn Lite WI ladies spent three evenings cutting and sewing to create this stunning fabric heart wreath. It was a real team effort and was enjoyed by all.
Edited to say: We got first prize for this item!

Meeting - Wednesday 3rd November 2010

We had a real treat at the start of the meeting. Our Choir (who are entering the Talwrn Village Eisteddfod on Saturday) gave us a sample of their performance. They sounded stunning! Good luck in the competition.

This was our third Business meeting. A WI Advisor attended to ensure the correct procedures and everything went smoothly. Following the business we had a relaxed chatty evening, discussing the December (1970s fancy dress theme) meeting and our craft item for the Cafe Direct, sack competition.

We are meeting on Wednesday 10th November 2010 in the Village Hall to plan our action for both the sack and the Christmas wreath entries. Also, if you didn't quite finish your fabric covered box, you can bring it a long and complete it in a relaxed environment, with the help of wine.

This was the final of our Summer Walk Event and on our home turf too. We met at Talwrn Village Hall at 6:30pm on Wednesday 25th August.

You could say it was a more unconventional walk and more of a ramble, taking us across open fields and meeting the farm animals on the way.

Summer Walks Event - Wednesday 17th August 2010

This is the penultimate of our Summer Walks event - meeting at 6:30pm in the car park behind The Jade Village, Menai Bridge.

This walk high-lighted the real beauty of Anglesey scenery. These photos were just a few of the ones taken on the walk.

Following the walk, we retired to The Anglesey Arms Hotel for a drink.
