There was no August meeting. Instead, WI members met up for a delicious afternoon tea at Ty Te, Cenarth. A very pleasant afternoon!

Congratulations to Barbara, who won 3rd prize for her amusing Limerick, “Homage to Edward Lear?” in this year’s WI Show in Carmarthen. Pencader WI won 2nd prize for bringing most entries to the show (from WIs with under 20 members). Well done everyone who entered something!

In September we welcomed John and Susan Macadam, who talked about making natural skin products. John and Susan live in Brechfa. They used to make and sell their products. Now they teach other people how to make them. They run 10 different courses on making various products such as soap, face cream, moisturizer, shampoo and scented candles. John was once a builder before he became interested in making soap etc, but they both obviously enjoy their work now. We were able to buy some gorgeous hand made soaps at the meeting.

Forthcoming meetings at the Pavilion:

October 1st: Risky Buildings – Richard Keen will talk about projects he’s been involved in.

November 5th: AGM

 You are welcome to come along to any of our meetings held in the Pavilion on the 1st Tuesday of the month.
