Strawberry Tea - 6th July 2015

We held our usual Summer Social and Strawberry Tea last Monday and a good time was had by all.
The committee provided the strawberry tea, with Kathryn's famous vanilla cream mould (courtesy of Delia Smith!), homemade shortbread and strawberry fairy cakes.

As usual our brains were not allowed to have a rest and there were three quizzes to tax us. Oh dear, judging by the photos perhaps we made the questions a bit too hard!

However, we did have one star - while the rest of us stared at our papers in bewilderment, Eileen seemed to be having no trouble at all deciphering the Dingbats quiz.
Eileen storming to a 10 point win!!

Sue T seemed to have a not entirely healthy familiarity with the Fast Food logos and also won the Film Quotations quiz, together with Susan, Nan and Louise.

We then went on to judge the competition for the Bell Trophy.  There was a interesting display of lovely work, with enormous variety.  Our theme was Marine.  The winner was Carole with a lovely, serene seascape.

We were joined at the meeting with our new Area Representative, Meg Starkey, who presented Carole with her prize.

Now we are looking forward to starting our new Guild year.  We are particularly excited because we are moving to a new venue which will allow us to include stitch and chat mornings to our main programme.  So from September we will have the hall from noon and will be able to spend time working on our own projects and exchanging ideas before the more formal part of the meeting.

See you again in September!
