AT the Christmas meeting held at the beginning of December, Holmer WI members enjoyed a Christmas quiz compiled by Talia Wheeler and Shell Roos, a performance of one of their Cogan Cup entries 'Pets' by members of the drama group, a festive bring and buy as well as a Christmas buffet, the centrepiece of which was a delicious Christmas cake baked by Frances Riddell.

The photo shows Sue Howells, committee member and Holmer group leader, demonstrating the techniques required to make Dorset buttons to member Raj Papps at a craft evening held earlier in the year.

Holmer WI will next meet on January 3 at St Marys church, Grandstand Road at 7.30pm. The speaker will be Maureen Williams and her subject, Hedgehog Rescue. Women are welcome to go along to find out more about this prickly subject!

The committee and members would like to take this opportunity to extend compliments of the season to all and wish everyone a happy and healthy 2018.
