Bath time is going to be a superb treat over the next few weeks. At the recent Skills Raffle, member Anne Clayton donated her skills in making bath salts, bath bombs, soap and handwash liquid. Anne ran a wonderful session for myself and friend Jan, expertly taking us through all the skills and techniques needed to make these products. We just had to take ourselves and aprons We even had tea and sponge cake to round off the afternoon. Great fun. A chance to make new friends, too. Thank you.

Last Wednesday saw our first ever skills raffle. Members donated their time to do a whole host of things, including learning to knit or crochet, baking a cake, demonstrating decorating cup cakes, learning to play poker, babysitting, making bath bombs and bubbles and a car valet.

A brilliant evening thanks to the resourcefulness of the Committee. Having been advised only yesterday that the dancers could not make it due to a ‘family grievance’, several Committee members stepped in, sought ideas on the Not the Official WI Facebook page, located a whole range of resources (coloured card, tissue paper, wool, stickers, pens, rulers, scissors and Easter eggs) and made tonight a successful evening.
An Easter quiz rounded off the evening plus our first ever Skills Raffle. Members had donated a whole host of exciting offers. These included a car valet, babysitting, baking a cake, decorating cup cakes, learning to play poker, making bath bombs and soaps, learning to knit and crochet and playing the piano. All part of our ‘caring and sharing’ theme. Don’t forget to let Helen Salisbury, Committee website/blogger have pictures of the fun you have with the skills sharing and what you make or do.
The WI Centenary year is just the time for members to share their many and varied skills. This could be a skill such as knitting, crocheting, DIY, gardening, hairdressing, nails, baking a cake or babysitting, the list is endless. You need to give 2 hours and the venue can be wherever you wish. You could even make it a social evening by sharing a bottle of wine while you help several members learn a new skill.
It’s not too late to donate your skill, so please Contact Us, call 07547 890 756 or speak to a Committee member. It would be great to have enough skills so that every member wins something in the raffle!
