Easter Bonnet & Twigs Quiz Prize Winners
Fun Easter Bonnets show that Spring has definitely arrived !
The sun shone down on our Easter Bonnet Parade, held at Oakdale Library, where prizes were also presented to the winners of our gardening quiz.
All of the bonnets were very creative and it was a lovely surprise to see the library staff joining in the fun. The judges Helen Smith along with two Police Community Support Officers had a difficult task deciding the winner. But eventually the prize went to our Beryl who looked as stylish as ever in her bonnet.
Poole Borough Libraries enquired if Twig's could produce a ‘Box Garden’ for a talk & display on activities within the Libraries at the Civic Offices.
So for a small cost Twigs produced a ‘Living Garden’ which could give a housebound person not only many pleasurable hours tending it, but also the added bonus of eating garden fresh herbs & salad from a window sill.
Go on make someone smile this Easter with no Calories!
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL.
1914 ‘100 year’ Commemoration Event
Last year we discussed the potential of an event being held. At that point it was merely an idea, however with the new start at a new venue in January we had further talks with Oakdale Library regarding the potential of our idea.
This was accepted with the result that later in the year Twigs will be holding an event to showcase life [within bounds of availability] as it was in 1914.
Twigs members are dressing in period costume, with a table or two on baking from the 1914 era with fresh bakes to try and buy. There will also be a recipe book, which will go on sale, showing all the recipes.
Items from the period will be on display, with floral arrangements in some very un-orthodox containers!
We are furiously growing poppies for the Commemoration Garden [an addition to the existing Reading Garden], which the Swop team have offered to do in conjunction with the Creekmoor & Oakdale WI.
I would like to thank my members for their hard work which in the last few months has seen them beavering away.
