The Jambusters WI - November 2017

It was a far from prickly reception from Karen Raithby of Pentangle Pottery as her warm and friendly talk brought us out of our craft hibernation. A fun, creative evening moulding and manipulating our clay to come up with our very own pottery hedgehogs - can't wait to see the finished pieces from the kiln in December when Karen returns them home to us.

The refreshment fairies imagination was also flowing with spooky inspired Halloween themed cakes.
The bumper monthly prize draw fund was won by Anne – congratulations!
We'll be bowled over and amazed by our ten pin bowling technique on Tuesday 7th Nov and our voices are already warming up for our annual carol concert on Tuesday 5th Dec.

Camera Club

Well the colder nights are upon us but at the camera club it doesn't stop our activities, we still hold regular meetings. The winter months are a good time to pop along and see what we do, join in and share your images with like-minded photographers.

During November we have a couple of meetings at The Old School at Dunholme, the first which is on the 2nd November when I will be judging the final of the Yearly Competition. This year I asked the members to produce 2 images of "Waterways" this is a fairly open competition as long as it has something to do with water.

The second meeting on the 23rd will once again be a final competition, this time I will be judging the final of the Monthly competition to find the winner from the top entries throughout the year. Both of these competitions will be difficult for me to judge as there will be some of the top images from the year.

So if you are interested in joining the club then come on down to The Old School for 7.15 ready for a 7.30 pm start.
