SUMMER NOSTALGIA ?

No 1.  CORN DOLLIES - remember them around 30 years ago or more?

This summer a fellow WI member from Edgerton,   taught us how to make Corn Dollies - well at least she made them, and we laughed and swore, and swore some more -  but eventually after much un-doing and re-doing, we did achieve our objective.
If you would like to have one, they will be on sale at the Safari Market (50 plus Garden Sales) on 15th September 2012 on the Harvest Stall in the Cardwell Pavillion.   See you there.

NO 2. DUCK RACING. 
Remember the wonderful Duck Race we organised for the Millenium Celebration ( 12 years ago, but  seems like yesterday)  We must have had more than a hundred racing on the River Bourne through the Millenium Green in Hollingbourne that day.

This year we started with a lunch in a member's garden
and then proceeded to the Duck Race

Our ducks had been purchased for the Village Fete Hook a duck competition, but  bearing in mind the Olympic swimming events, we decided on 'OPEN WATER RACING' and gave our ducks the freedom of the River Bourne where it flowed through a member's garden. We chose a duck each and cheered it on.  ( in fact we had three races we enjoyed it so much)
It was Sarah's job to catch the winner.  - amazingly some ducks went backwards, some in circles, and all of them stopped at the little weir to be collected and raced again.   It was a lovely day.
