ARELEY KINGS WI: Patsy Anderson, president warmly welcomed members to this month’s meeting. The speaker was a sugarcraft artisan Sarah Coley; she displayed some of her amazing cakes and decorations. Sarah has been working professionally in sugarcraft for a relatively short time and has some truly unique skills in the art of sugarcraft. Members were able to try their hand at making their own sugar teddy bear decoration with aid of Sarah’s expert help; each bear was totally unique and was lovingly boxed for us to take home.

This month’s walk in Wolverly was led by Lesley Smith and Ann Bailey. The walk began and ended at the Lock Inn: they went along the canal, through a nature reserve to Wolverly Church.

Members were invited to design a flag for the WI group in Areley Kings; the winning design was entered by Margaret Cook. The skittles award for the highest score of the season went to our very capable skittles captain Ann Bailey.

Some Archived limericks from past members appertaining to tennis were recently discovered, Patsy Anderson read them out to the group and they were so funny!

A Summer Garden Party will be hosted by Paula Smith July 29, contact Jacki Clark, secretary if you would like more Information.

The competition this month was a decorated cupcake: first place Carla Walters, second place Ann Shortall and third place Margaret Cook.

The next meeting will be held September 12 7.30pm. In place of a speaker it will be a trip down memory lane, and will be a social evening with a supper. The competition will be a decorated coat hanger. Visitors are always very welcome.
