Warmingham members are looking forward to Thursday 8th May. On this morning members will be selling cakes and crafts on a stall at Sandbach Market. Everything is home made by Warmingham’s WI talented members and (based on past experience) will sell out quickly: like hotcakes!! Why not come along and succumb to temptation!
For their April meeting Warmingham members were treated to a colourful demonstration of the art of decorating cakes by skilled sugar crafter Julia Fenton. Julia demonstrated tricks she’d learned over the years, recounting tales of her own journey in building and practising her expertise. She rose to the challenge of a mixed ability audience, with many members skilled in making and decorating cakes and others of us raw beginners (or not even at the starting line!). By the end of her session there was a whole world displayed comprising cakes decorated with all sorts of Easter flora and fauna.
Wednesday 7th May is the next monthly meeting when Joan Colwell will say “Thank you Mr Lever”. The focus is Port Sunlight and will be followed by a trip to explore this famous village later in the summer. The meeting begins, as usual at 7.30pm and visitors are welcome.
Jean Williams Recounted to Warmingham members just a few of the surprising turns her life had taken. These included writing a book that sold out more than one print run and taking a job as a guide at Little Moreton Hall. She’d done nothing like either of these endeavours before and succeeded beyond her expectations. The main focus of the evening was her work at Little Moreton Hall. As Jean said it’s “a perfect capsule of Tudorness”. She provided a superb mix of tales behind the scenes at the Hall with information about the Hall and some of the interactions between it and its visitors. Although many in the audience were familiar with the Hall everyone discovered new nuances and understandings and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. No doubt there will be some new and further visits to the Hall this year!
Warmingham members are looking forward already to the Cheshire Show and beginning work for this. As well as the normal monthly activities this month includes a trip to Nantwich for a guided tour of St Mary’s Church, followed by lunch.
Looking ahead there is a date to put in the diary for Warmingham members and for visitors to Sandbach. The date is Thursday 8th May. On this morning members will be selling cakes and crafts on a stall at Sandbach Market. Everything is home made by Warmingham’s WI talented members and (based on past experience) will sell out quickly: like hotcakes!!
Wednesday 2nd April is the next monthly meeting and in a timely fashion, Julia Denton will be presenting on Easter Sugar Craft.
The meeting begins, as usual at 7.30pm and visitors are welcome. Trying Warmingham WI could be a New Year Resolution!
