2011 Anglesey Federation Annual Show

Talwrn Lite WI ladies entered lots of competitions at the Anglesey Federation Annual Show held in Bodedern on 17th June 2011. With lots of success including winning the Co-operative competition based on "Bonfire Night".
For the Co-operative competition we needed to create a floral, craft and cookery item to tie in with the theme.

19th June 2011 - Open Garden at Ty Gwyn

On the 19th June 2011 the Talwrn Lite ladies provided and served refreshments at the beautiful home of Anna & Keith Griffiths of Ty Gwyn, Llanbedrgoch.

The weather was kind and the visitors flocked to see the gardens. It was lovely to see families relaxing on picnic rugs on the lawns while the children ran about.

The tea and cakes went down a treat too with only a handful of left-overs to take home.

HELP! We need you - now!

Talwrn Village Hall is used by the majority of the community. However, even this use is making it difficult to make ends meet and pay the ever increasing bills.
To address this issue the Hall Committee have applied for the Energy Share project. If successful we will receive a free sustainable energy solution which will allow us to sell back any surplus energy produced to the grid.
What you need to do:
  • Click on this link which will take you directly to our Energy Share page.
  • Click on "Support this group" it's on the right hand side of the screen.
  • Complete the registration process and then click on the verify your support link in the email that you will receive.
  • The process is now complete.

It's as simple as that. Ideally, if your family members have separate email addresses we would like them to register their support too.

URGENT: Unfortunately we only have till the end of June to gain support so your immediate action would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time and your support. We will keep you informed of our progress.

Meeting - 1st June 2011

The speaker for this evening were representatives from the local fabric and wool shop. They came armed with lovely goodies for us to get excited about. They were so patient, explaining the techniques of crochet over and over. I'm sure that the ladies who didn't attend will be kicking themselves when they hear about the evening.
We had such a good laugh learning how to crochet. The photo above shows Glynwen modelling a beard creation made by Margaret.
Loved this chunky cushion cover.
These huge wooden crochet hooks are made locally especially for the shop that provided the demo this evening.
We pulled up the sofas and got comfy, so we could learn how to crochet. In some cases it was the blind leading the blind, but we all got the hang of it and left with balls of wool under our arms and loads of inspiration...which is what learning is all about!
If you didn't manage to get a copy of the "How to crochet" instructions, you can email and I will email a copy to you.
