Arts Coffee Morning

Posted February 22, 2013 by WI Staff in Event Reports

A very successful coffee morning was held recently at headquarters. It was organised by the Arts Sub-Committee with over 100 people attending. As well as coffee with delicious scones, pancakes and traybakes, the members viewed the beautiful paintings, 3D decoupage, calligraphy and good handwriting that had been entered by Institutes from across the province. There is so much talent in the WI, you should try to come to see it.

The Chairman of Arts Sub-Committee, Ethel Simpson, welcomed everyone, especially Federation Chairman Margaret Collinson, Vice-Chairman Irene Craig, and Treasurer Ann Kirkwood and fellow members. A delighted Yvonne Adams from Annalong WI was the overall winner, but congratulations to all the other winners who are as follows.
