Last Thursday’s meeting was as delicious as organic chocolate tasting promised to be. A very big thank you to Master Chocolatier Anthony Ferguson of Niko B Organic Chocolate who described his craft with such passion and taught us the difference between ‘high street’ and fine chocolate. We tasted chocolate from different regions before sampling his own delicious organic truffles. Needless to say we’re all going to be paying visits to his stall in the Farmers Market at Stoke Newington (every Saturday).
TRIPS & EVENTS
So now that summer is drawing to a close there are plenty of plans to keep us entertained of an evening. Trips including an Evening of Magic and Friendship and a federation picnic in Regents Park as well as the famous Rosemary Branch Panto in December. You can read about them on Ruth’s new DBWI TRIPS page. Email her directly HERE if you’re interested in booking them.
Middlesex Federation WI have a stand at the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace 8–12 October where they will be taking part in stitch-by-stitch demonstrations, full details on their pdf flyer which can be downloaded HERE.
This Sunday, 14th September, is the De Beauvoir Gardeners Flower and Produce show. You can see all the categories and pre-enter your prize winning cakes, biscuits, flowers and veg HERE. We thought it might be nice to enter some things under the DBWI umbrella so if you are feeling generous with your entries please consider putting some in as de Beauvoir WI (you can still add your own name). As the organiser of the dog show I for one have 500 dog biscuits to bake so I might not be entering anything other than that jar of jam sitting on the top shelf!
Lastly, looking forward to December we have booked our own WI stall at the De Beauvoir Association Christmas Fair at St. Peters on December 13th. We already have some ideas about what to sell (details will be posted soon) but anyone interested in helping on the day or contributing any kind of craft or edible please contact the committee by email.
Remember to check out the Book Club and Knit and Chatter pages if you want to join either of those sub groups.
One thought on “Autumn events”
Thanks for all the info. Wondered if it’s possible to record the Benyon talk next month? Sadly, I will miss it as on holiday but having lived here 35+years, would be very interested in his family history & hopes for the area in the future. I’m sure there would be other residents who would also be interested. Perhaps we could sell a CD to raise funds ( with his permission) at the Christmas Fair ? Perfect for a stocking filler or as a hostess gift instead of the usual bottle. What do you think? Regards Lynn
