Officers of Little Sutton Sapphires WI attended the Autumn federation meeting for Cheshire at Winsford today (3rd October 2017)
Super event and we had our picture taken with John McCarthy who was guest speaker for the day!
One of the Sapphire members also found a picture taken from the Cheshire Federation page where she asked members to find a Sapphire in the audience.
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.
