Centenary Tree Planting

Nov 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On a cold and damp November day and the day after the Nation celebrated the Centenary of women gaining the vote, some members congregated to plant an Amelanchier tree to celebrate the centenary of the formation of C.F.W.I. 

The Federation Chairman, Jean Harding, and the Chairman of Comberbach Parish Council,John Ryder, officiated. The preparation and digging of the hole was done by Tony Rowe, Rosie's husband and his certainly was the hardest job.

            W.I.Bursary

 

At our March meeting we will be awarding an educational bursary of £250.00 to one lucky member. The bursary can be used to purchase any educational course which will give the member an opportunity to learn a new skill or enhance and extend an already mastered one.

The only proviso is that the member gives a short talk or demonstration at one of our meetings once the course has been attended. 

The bursary can be used to pay for courses at local venues or at ones further afield, the more notable being our own Denman College. Rosie Rowe was the last recipient of the bursary and she chose to attend a course on 'European Style Flower Arranging' at Denman. The course ran over a weekend and although by herself, she was made very welcome and enjoyed good company as well as excellent facilities, comfortable accommodation and well prepared and tasty food. What more could you want? Rosie made three unusual and complicated arrangements as well as a button hole which she brought to the next meeting  to show the members.
