Wine Tasting Half yearly Party

What an amazing evening was had last night by members of Little Sutton Sapphires WI. We had our half yearly party to show members our appreciation for supporting our WI with sales tables and raffles.
We had Majestic Wines from Chester to come along and give us an educational speech on white and red wine. Tasters were given to members from different bottles from the "Defination Range" of Majestic wines.
Members enjoyed a buffet after and also decided who was to be the first "Sapphire of the Year 2017 - 2018. The winner was Audrey Powell
Next one of our members Anne Allen, who won first place in the beginners class ( 1A) at the Royal Cheshire Show was awarded the Edwina Oldham Trophy which will be kept for 6 mths and then handed to the other joint winner from Heswall Honey's
Our first bursary award was won by our president Adele, who decided to give it to our Secretary for all her hard work with crafters and promoting the Sapphires wherever she went and for the hard work she does for members entering the cheshire show.

Ukulelee Group

Sapphires have to be different and May's meeting certainly was that. We had a Ukulelee group come along and give us lessons on chord to play the instrument.
We had so much fun with members joining in on a singalong and also playing the chords learnt for more singing

April's meeting

We had one of our members give us a  talk for the April WI meeting. Cathy Bowness who is a flower arranger.
She brought loads of flowers/leaves/ornamants and bits and gave us several demonstrations on basics and small arrangements to try at home.
Loads of enthusiasm by members, so much so pictures went up of members who had tried out Cathy's ideas
