Special thanks to all who attended – Colleen for her organisational skills and her able Deputy, Pat, the provider of fabulous fizz – (you had to be there!)

Oh, and the book – The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal which scored 7.5 – a worthwhile challenge.

Book Club

Did you know that the Crowlas & Ludgvan WI Book Club has been going strong since 2004!? That’s over nine years!

During that time, they’ve read a huge variety of books, from Dan Brown to Barack Obama to Radcliffe Hall to Nancy Mitford. That’s quite a range!

Ladies, might there be a big 10th anniversary celebration next year?
