Three of our Members - Joyce Riggall, Rita Moon and Joyce Walker joined the Sugarcraft Flower Workshop at West Kent WI Headquarters in Pembury for a Dayschool

These are the finished projects. A worthwhile result for enjoyable day of endeavour and these flowers are all for the eating!
A lot of time and hard work are involved so they are mainly used for a special occasion cakes - weddings, anniversaries etc, but perhaps we will be lucky and some will be served up at our next WI Meeting.


On a wonderful, warm June evening we showed members of other Institutes, the well used footpaths 'around the houses'. A map of the route with the origin of the houses we passed added to the interest, and of course - the best part - a cool drink in the garden of The Sugar Loaves rounded the evening off.

A circular walk with one hill,to be taken slowly.Ring Sara Gemmelli 01622734690 by 20th August if you want to book Lunch after the walk.

TRIATHLON- the Challenge set by WI NATIONAL

Val (our President) does look as if she has just swum the Channel, but the task is not so great!
Each WI has been set a challenge to Walk, Bicyle, and Swim to achieve (combined) triathlon miles and Hollingbourne is well on the way to its targets -
The Walkers and Riders have achieved their goals, but the Swimmers have a few more lengths to do. The Sebastian Coe Health Club have allowed the team free swims and Val Williams, Ann Stout and Margaret Weaver show how they enjoyed this one. Jean Kelly offered to do one swim and covered 100 lengths! - but even one length is enough to become part of the team.
A full report and more pictures will follow.
