The WI Tea Tent was as popular as ever at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show. Teams of volunteers from around the County served tea, coffee and squash along with a selection of scones, cakes and biscuits to the hundreds of show visitors in need of a little refreshment, taking a break in their busy day. There was plenty of time between shifts to see all that the show had to offer – Wendie even managed to catch a moment with a Royal Visitor. Well done to everyone for their hard work and to those who entered the competitions.
Book Club met at Lisa’s this week to discuss the ‘Five Rivers met on a Wooded Plain’the first novel by Barney Norris. The book, set in the Salisbury area, details how the lives of five unremarkable local people have been intertwined over a number of years in a multitude of minor incidents. With a high score averaging 8.2/10 it was enjoyed by everyone. Next month’s book is The Door by Magda Szabo.
Camera Club met at Godolphin this week for a guided tour of the bluebells. This month’s aim was to achieve better composition, and members had studied some tutorials before the trip.
Despite the damp weather there was plenty to photograph in the gardens and grounds , and of course the cafe was a great place to dry off and have a chat afterwards.
Margaret Walton lead a delightful Parchment workshop this week. Members were able to create a variety of delicate designs that then be used for card making or other crafts. Many thanks to Val P and Margaret.
After postponing their outing on Tuesday due to the bad weather, Camera Club went to Carn Euny near Sancreed for their April meeting. With the aim of using Aperture controls to get clear foreground detail combined with a blurred background there was plenty to photograph at the iron age settlement. Next month’s meeting is 1st May at Godolphin – please see Helen if you would like to join us to photograph the bluebells.
