Our W.I ladies enjoyed a lovely visit to the Deer Wood Trust last Sunday to see the Bluebells in their full glory! What a sight they were, as far as the eye could see – beautiful bluebells, and so many birds singing, and also a field of pretty spring lambs too. The ladies discovered more about alternative living and being more at one with nature. The ladies tried out herbal teas and vegan cake, most delicious. The next meeting for our ladies will be on Thursday  May 11th at 7.30pm, they would love to welcome some new members,so why not come for a sample evening? There’s an interesting talk each month and refreshments too.
