Isn’t it lovely when something truly amazing happens when you’re least expecting it?
Last week I took off the Combined Arts hat (it’s large with bright pink flowers and ribbons) and put on my WI Adviser’s hat (taupe / khaki in Fedora style with brown Grosgrain ribbon) as I was to attend Dinnington WI’s Zoomed Annual Meeting.
We had a lovely meeting, and a delightful, informative speaker afterwards. Stevie Glover, who is a Celebrant, gives an excellent talk on her job and also manages to be President of Horsley WI in her spare time. Afterwards I just happened to mention that Combined Arts Committee were looking for new members…and Stevie said she’d love to join us! I’m delighted, as Stevie has a background of PR and publishing (think VIZ) and loves Drama!! Excellent times ahead, and we’re getting nearer to being able to hold events. Think photography, painting, music, art, tea parties… and if you too would like to join Combined Arts Committee, please let me know – we’ll even find you a hat!
PS. A little bit of Combined ART homework for you. Please find last month’s Northumberland News and a nice soft lead pencil. Turn to the centre, find the photos of Board Members, and change my brassy blonde hair to it’s true silver grey please. Don’t you just love a bit of colouring in?! Stay safe.
