WOOKEY HOLE W.I. DECEMBER 2018 MEETING
 
    It was almost a 'full house' at our December meeting and seasonal celebrations were top      
    of the agenda.
    Christmas jumpers were in abundance ,a bumper raffle , music, and a table laden with festive 
    goodies set the scene.
         Mulled wine was consumed whilst the ladies pondered over a Christmas Quiz provided by 
   Sue H. We then invited everyone to draw on their artistic skills by cutting out a shape and 
   adding it to a blank sheet of paper. We did provide some templates if needed.
    Gradually a rather lovely Nativity picture emerged . 
   The end result was much better than we expected ! 
   Our masterpiece will now be displayed at the Nativity Festival at St Cuthberts Church.
         Jill thanked everyone for making poppies and sharing  their personal stories for our         Remembrance display in November.
  Thanks were also expressed to those who had brought 'goodies' for the food bank.
   Sounds of "Happy Christmas" echoed around the hall as members made their way home.
 
   Jill Deane    Picture of our masterpiece provided and also a party picture.

A few years ago Lucy White was invited to think of a social club that could be useful in Wookey Hole in gathering people together for enjoyable times. scrabble club copy 2.jpg

Lucy loves playing Scrabble and wanted to find likeminded people so started a Scrabble Club by delivering notices about it door to door .

The Wookey Hole Club, built in 1884, has a long and colourful history. Minutes of the Club Committee are still in existence from its inauguration through to the present day, with only two periods, 1940-1949 and 1974-1980, having been mislaid. The content of these documents gives a fascinating insight into the recreational and social behaviour of village residents over the past century.

Jill welcomed everyone back after the Christmas holiday although our numbers were deplete mainly due to illness . 
Members were thanked for the extra items that they had given to the  Food Bank.  We were told that extra parcels were able to be provided to those in need over  the Christmas period.
 
It was Resolution voting time and we quickly completed our choices.
 
Our speaker was Christina Blackwill who demonstrated 'The Great British Shake Off'......Keep Fit with Shakers. Tina visits many different groups and she soon had us joining in with her as we shook our shakers in time to the music. She was careful to warn us not to move any parts of us that hurt and several of us made a mental notes to protect our vulnerable 'bits' .  We didn't need to worry though as it was fun , gentle and enjoyable. It was probably the nearest thing we shall get to being Cheer Leaders !
 
Pauline J thanked her for an entertaining afternoon .
 
The competition to make a pom-pom reminded us of the cardboard milk bottle tops that we used in the past . There was even a hole in the middle for the straw.
