Open Garden - Sunday 13th June 2010

Local gardener Anna Griffiths and her husband Keith invited Talwrn Lite WI to provide and serve refreshments at their Open Garden, (part of the National Garden Scheme) at their home Ty Gwyn, Llanbedrgoch.
Unfortunately, the weather was not good in the morning, with the rain falling till 2pm when the sun came out and the visitors started to arrive.
Thanks to all those who donated cakes and helped on the day.
We had some laughs though. In the top photo: Trish, Marge and Di - re-living the scene from Calendar Girls where they say "we're going to need considerably bigger buns"! (Click on the photo to get a bigger image).

Meeting - Wednesday 2nd June 2010

Following the business at the June 2010 meeting we had a talk and demonstration of magic tricks from Les Leveen and his assistant Betty. Les has many years of experience of being a Magician and some of his jokes were just as old. However it was a very enjoyable evening, especially as many of the members had the giggles half way through the talk when helpers were required for the tricks.

Meeting - Wednesday 5th May 2010

Every picture tells a story!

This month our Guest Speaker was Andy Barton, a local businessman and amateur photographer.

Andy has a very informal style of talk, which suited our group down to a "T", but appears to be a perfectionist where his long standing interest in photography is concerned.

He shared with us his absolutely stunning photographs - some sky/landscapes, people, interesting places, even his family doing normal things. He certainly has a knack of searching out that extra something to get the perfect picture.

Andy detailed how he achieved specific styles and encouraged our ladies to take a basic camera and get snapping the shots and not to get bogged down in what is right or wrong. As far as he is concerned, if it is pleasing to you (the photographer) that is all that matters.
