Our W.I ladies enjoyed a lovely evening last Thursday with local speaker Kerryn Bunn, who showed the ladies how to make some tasty Easter treats. Kerryn demonstrated some charming ‘pizza bunnies made from dough and some usual pizza ingredients of cheese tomato and capers. The dough was shaped into a sausage shape, rolled and then flattened, and twisted into bunny ears with the toppings then applied – they looked great and tasted lovely. The great hit of the evening was the chocolate-dipped strawberries which our ladies helped to decorate in their own individual styles, then of course they had to be tasted …. and they were most delicious!! Kerryn had also made some gorgeous brownies which were enjoyed by everyone at the end of the evening with refreshments. Kerryn was heartily thanked for all her efforts after a most enjoyable evening. The flower of the month competition result was as follows, 1st Maggie Skeates, 2ndMeg Brett, 3rd Rosie Warrillow. Next Month’s meeting will be on Thursday April 14th at 7.30pm and this one has been declared an open meeting as Keith Beaumont is coming to talk about the Great Tractor Runs that have taken place to raise funds for the Devon Air Ambulance trust.
Our friends at the pre school are looking for help in revitalising their garden, any help would be appreciated. Have you got any bags of compost, pots, seeds and plants? Anything would be welcome to get this lovely project up and running. They are also looking for sensory plants to add touch, smell and feel, lavender is a good one, also grasses for the noise they make in the wind, anything like that. Please contact the Hive for further details.
