Needles and Pins

It was a fun and productive meeting of the Needles and Pins Craft Group this month. Members met at Jenny’s and worked on their own individual projects plus a joint mission to knit Poppies for Ludgvan Church. Shirley got a bit carried away and wore her poppies as a hat!

Well done to everyone who entered the competitions this year. Congratulations in particular to Val Boakes for both her second place in the Barbara Reed Trophy and for winning the Yvonne Toms Award for Best Craft. Well done also to the Group Entry Team for their Third place ‘Minack Theatre’ Entry.

Book Club

Book Club met at The Queen’s Hotel in Penzance to discuss ‘Our Spoons Came From Woolworths’ by Barbara Comyns. The book divided members who all scored the book with a 2/10 or 8/10 mostly on account of the main character and narrator of the story whose naivety was in equal parts endearing and infuriating.

Next month’s book is ‘Dear Mrs Bird’ by AJ Pearce.  Read a bit about the book here .

Big Lunch

Members of Crowlas and Ludgvan WI joined forces with Ludgvan Parish Church to stage an event for The Eden Project’s Big Lunch 2019. The Murley Hall was filled with local people who had come together to enjoy lunch and get to know each other better. The weather was kind enough for some to sit outside under the gazebos. Well done to everyone who contributed! (Pictures Peter Puddiphatt)

Up and Away……

On Saturday several members of Crowlas and Ludgvan WI went to The Eden Project to have a go at the Hangloose Zip Wire Event organised by CFWI. Well done to all of you!

May Walk

This month we tackled some of the north coast leading to Portreath before returning inland through beautiful woods at Illogan & Tehidy Country Park.  The coastal path was strenuous but we all agreed the views were well worth the effort. The woods were at their best with bluebells and new growth. We ended the day with a well earned picnic (Shirley B)


Camera Club May Outing

Camera Club had a lovely afternoon exploring Trevaylor Woods this week. With bluebells, ferns, a stream and of course plenty of trees, there was no shortage of subject material and everyone was delighted with their pictures. Next month is due to be on Friday 21st June at Penrose. If you would like to come along withe any camera, phone or tablet see Helen.
