Pencader WI

The year has started well. We are very pleased that Linda, Barbara and Rosemary have joined us and hope they enjoy the benefits to be had from becoming W.I. members.

In January, the Federation Annual Quiz was held at the Halfway Inn, Nantgaredig. One of the Pencader teams (Mary, Rosemary and Jane) did very well. They came 9th out of 53 teams. Congratulations to them!

In February Lesley Cutler from Llandysul W.I. came to our meeting and talked to us about Pearls. She brought some lovely jewellery for us to look at and explained the differences between natural sea water, cultivated and simulated pearls. We all enjoyed the talk very much. We have enjoyed some interesting meetings recently.

The St. David’s Day Lunch at the Porth Hotel was very enjoyable, as was the Teifi Group Meeting at Neuadd yr Ysgol, LLanfihangel Ar Arth. The meeting was well attended and the guest speaker was Elin Jones, Presiding Officer of the National Assembly of Wales. She talked about her childhood in West Wales and her interesting political career.

We all enjoyed May’s trip to Fishguard to see The Last Invasion Tapestry in the Library. The 30 metre long embroidered tapestry is beautiful. It tells the story of the 1797 last invasion of mainland Britain. It took 70 local women 2 years to make and is well worth a visit.

W.I. meetings are held in the Pavilion at 2pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

Forthcoming events:

Tuesday 6th June: a talk by local solicitors

Tuesday 4th July: a talk by Jamie Richards, who worked at No. 10 for many years.

You are welcome to join us at any of these meetings.
