Happy Birthday to us!
To celebrate World Inner Wheel Day, 19 members from Warsop Clubmet at Langwith Village Hall, in keen anticipation of a lovely faith lunch and an afternoon making decorative slates under the guidance of our President Ruth.
After locating the missing bread and the aforesaid President (who had had to return home to collect the aforesaid slates), we tucked in to a choice of 3 soups (with bread…. lots of bread), followed by an array of desserts.
President Ruth, assisted by Helen, then demonstrated just how easy it is to turn a plain heart shaped piece of slate into a beautiful wall hanging with a picture of our choice.
Aprons were donned, paint was dabbed, slates were dried, more paint was dabbed and dried, pictures were applied with glue, more drying and then the final, and most exciting/messy bit – splattering with different colours to achieve a very professional looking finish. This last process was most challenging for those with beautifully polished nails.
The finished slates looked splendid and we were all happy to take home a beautiful memento of a lovely day.
A raffle was held and all proceeds will benefit Sue’s international projects. Thank you to her and to Ruth for organising a fun day to celebrate our 49th Birthday.
