DECEMBER MEETING

A very relaxed and happy group of SPArkles ladies met at Cheryl's house for an evening of wreath making.

These wreaths were made by knotting strips of fabric and ribbon to a wire frame...a very easy but effective Christmas craft.

SPARKLES CHRISTMAS TREE

Every year SPArkles WI exhibit a decorated Christmas tree at the Christmas Tree Festival in St Andrew's Church....and this year is OUR BEST TREE EVER! Members of the craft club worked hard to produce pink and sparkly decorations linked to our 'Alleviating Loneliness' resolution and the tree is full of birds and birdhouses along with pink hearts showing various things we can do to help those who may be lonely.

If you have a spare couple of minutes when you are next in Droitwich Town Centre then the Christmas Tree Festival is well worth a visit. St Andrew's Church is on the corner of St Andrew's Street and the High Street (opp Acorns Charity Shop) and is open every day between now and Christmas. There are 21 Christmas Trees on display and visitors are asked to vote for their favourite (Hint: Vote for SPArkles!)
