Our prize winners

The sun could not have shone brighter for our first joint De Beauvoir WI and De Beauvoir Gardeners Flower and Produce. Everyone I meet who attended has had nothing but praise for the event and how much it brings the community together. If you missed the prize giving (or if you sadly missed the show altogether) we can happily now give you a link to all the winners HERE and a gallery of pics HERE.

Special mention has to go to some of our own lovely ladies who took away some of the top prizes. Justina Kochansky won first prize for her piece of homemade jewellery which was then awarded the Silver Cup for the BEST EXHIBIT in the show. Gillian Rowe won the highly prized Rose Bowl for the highest number of points in the flowers and fruit and vegetable categories.

Sara Lawrence got first prize for her cupcakes. Jacqui James was a popular winner in the Dog Show after her gorgeous dog Humphrey (below) wowed the audience with his best trick.

Christmas Fayre and December’s party

For those of you who couldn’t get to the fair on Saturday here are a few pics of the lovely crafts and items made and donated by our members. We raised a princely sum for our funds which will be announced at Thursday’s meeting – so well done everyone! An extra big thank you to Amanda who contributed so much time to making it happen – including decorating the entrance to lure in passers-by. If you have any more pics send them in so we can add to the gallery (debeauvoirwi@hotmail.com). Leftover items will be on sale on Thursday.

Our next meeting is this Thursday 3rd and its our Christmas party (prosecco, hot punch and non-alcoholic punch on offer) with a selection of festive crafts to try: biscuit icing, gift tags, beaded tree decorations and a demonstration of a floral Christmas centrepiece. Most of all time to chat with all the new girl friends we’ve made this year! See you at 7.30. x
