Wartime Remembrance


At our September meeting we made poppies – lots of them – out of different materials – silk, felt, the bottoms of plastic bottles, and wool (knitted and crocheted).  These will be used to build a wreath, that we will carry in the Centennial Remembrance Day procession in Bognor Regis in November.  It was great to have a creative evening … and lots of chat!

Many thanks to Katie for her imaginative felt, silk and plastic ideas, to Celia for finding the knitting patterns, and to Lesley G for designing an original crochet pattern.

The competition this month was to bake a wartime recipe.  There were 8 entries, both baked goods and some interesting history too.  The baked items were tasted and  judged by members during refreshments.  The winner was Dinah with joint seconds Jack, Annie and Kathryn, and Karen, Lesley G and Trish will receive one point towards their totals for the annual cup.  (There was also a recipe for potato scones but, as a naff competition organiser, I didn’t get a name for those, so if someone would like to come forward they will also get a point!)

Sue organised a very attractive raffle with all prizes in red and including a packet of poppy seeds.
