February 2021

We haven’t been able to meet for some time, due to Covid restrictions. However, we are managing to keep in touch with each other via email, etc. The Carmarthenshire Federation’s monthly newsletter keeps us informed of the many online activities, such as Book Clubs (via Zoom), competitions and online courses and talks which members can take part in.

Obviously it’s not the same as meeting face to face, but it’s much safer at the moment.

Although we don’t know when our meetings will start up again, we have lots of interesting activities and speakers planned for when they do.

These include:

Davina Watson           Victorian Costume

Judith Holland           Welsh Historic Gardens Trust

A talk on the Citizens’ Advice Bureau

Trip to Abergavenny Market

In normal times, meetings take place in the Pavilion at 2:00pm, on the first Tuesday of the month. If you are interested in joining the WI, give Linda a ring on 01559 389882 or look us up on Facebook.

December 2020

Our September, socially distanced, meeting was held outside the Pavilion. We all took our own chairs to sit on. This was the first time we’d met up since the beginning of March and it was lovely to see each other after all that time.

We welcomed Kirstine, a possible new WI member, to the meeting. Good to see a new face.

Our October meeting was held in Rosemary and Mike’s barn at Llaingyfre. Only six members braved the weather to attend the meeting, but they still managed to raise £20.70 at their Bring and Buy sale. Due to Covid restrictions, there was no AGM in November. However, our 3 Officers have all agreed to continue in their roles for another year and we are very grateful for all their hard work.

They are: President…………………Rosemary Richardson

Secretary ………………..Linda Harrison

Treasurer ………………..Madge Pratt

In normal times, meetings take place in the Pavilion at 2:00pm on the first Tuesday of the month.
