Dolau WI Report January 2015

The first meeting of 2015 was held on Wednesday January 7th at Dolau Community Centre. The WI was delighted to be able to present to  Ruth Parry-Wright, representing  ‘Womens Aid’ in Llandrindod Wells, the proceeds of their carol singing efforts around the villages of Dolau and Penybont. The amount collected and donated was £402.

Ruth gave a talk about the charity and how the money could be used to support women suffering from abuse and who use the refuge in Llandrindod Wells.

Business items were then discussed and included Dolau members voting on the WI resolutions, updates on the staging/display workshop, NFWI Centenary Craft Panel and courses in IT and digital photography.

The meeting then enjoyed a very interesting and informative talk by Anna Haslock on the art of silk screen printing. Anna also gave a demonstration of this craft and a few members had the opportunity to participate. Anna had also brought along to the meeting many of the items she has produced for sale: her goods can be purchased from her web site  www.annaprints.co.uk.

Anna then judged the meetings ‘pretty scarf’ competition which was won by Tessa Lloyd.

The meeting concluded with a social and refreshments supplied by Tessa Lloyd and Ann Williams.

The next meeting will be held on Wednesday 4th February when Mandy Davies will demonstrate how to decorate cup cakes. All new members and visitors are most welcome to attend.
