Buying a poppy in November will not be the same having been to the Poppy Factory and seen the people at work. It was fascinating to see the wreaths being made, from simple to royal and we watched one man making piles of WI wreaths. One lady was making the royal poppies from red silk with black broom centres. Ian, a retired sub-mariner, told us about the history and the work of the charity. He was a mine of information and a very amusing raconteur. It was a really interesting afternoon
We enjoyed lots of wonderful music and singing at the Albert Hall on Sunday. They didn’t stint on the spectacle either – lasers, fireworks, guns firing and soldiers in uniform. It was a great afternoon organised by Camberley WI.
Paddington Bear couldn’t have been more pleased than Tara and Pauline when they left clutching jars of marmalade in their sticky hands! Lots of fun………….and we ate cake too!
Delicious meal at Khari in The Atrium and great company. Just got home after a fast waddle to burn off a few calories! Thank you Sylvie for organising everything.
Well done Tara and Sal for getting this going again. It’s all a mystery to me but I am willing to learn!!
Don’t forget that tomorrow there is a Coffee and Chat meeting at Café Nero in House of Fraser – any time from 10.30. Look forward to seeing you there.
