Cherry Oh Baby!

There were big ones, small ones and some as big as your head!  I am of course talking of Pom Poms!!

We had a great turnout once again for our March meeting and it was fabulous to see so many new faces as well as some familiar ones too!   Some yummy homemade goodies were brought out alongside Tea and Prosecco and we were off to a great start...

Following a greeting and introductions by Emma and Claire, we had a visit from two lovely ladies raising money for The Grove House Hospice drumming up participants for The Midnight Walk to be held on 11th May 2013 at 10pm.  You can choose to do 5 miles or 10 miles and men are welcome too.  Entry is £17.00 and you even get a goody bag.  We have been invited to put together a team for the night, if you are interested then please contact us or let us know at next months meeting. 


We then cracked on with this months activity: Cherry Brooches!   There was a lot of laughter putting these together, with ladies proudly admiring their pom poms (oo-er!) and comparing them around the room, and we were determined not to be beaten by the dastardly of all dastardlies.... the crochet stem!!



It was a great fun activity allowing everybody to get to know eachother and have a giggle along the way, whilst the end result was successful for most and not so successul for others, the group was united in agreeing one thing - we are clearly never going to wear these brooches in public!!  

Once again we had a great turnout for our Trade Table with this months Red/Cherry theme proving a hit.   If you would like to sell at next month's Trade Table then please contact Rebecca London via our Facebook page and let her know, so we can calculate for space.   Please remember that 15% of all sales will go towards the Group. 

Well that old adage of 'Time Flies When You're Having Fun' rang loud and clear and before we knew it the evening was at an end and it was time to pack up our pom poms and skidaddle. 

We look forward to seeing you all again next month and greeting some new faces too!

Until next month then Belles,  bye for now!
