THE May meeting once again revealed what a talented group of women there are at Holmer WI.

In addition to Margaret Powell's work, Sue Howells demonstrated felt and papercraft, Mary Burgess displayed wool craft and Christmas decorations, Jackie Hancock showed confectionary, Talia Wheeler displayed decorated horseshoes (her husband is a blacksmith), Raj had made some origami stars, Frances Riddell demonstrated leatherwork, Joyce Crosier had worked on some fabric creations and Sue Patmore worked on a tapestry.

In addition, secretary Jenny, gave a report on the Hereford Federation ACM which was recently held at the Three Counties Hotel when two excellent speakers had spoken with authority about marine conservation and the life and work of a Chelsea Pensioner.

President, Mary, told members about the resolutions on which they were required to vote this year. The first, a call against the decline of local bus services. The second, a campaign to reduce fear of the cervical smear test. Both were unanimously supported.

Members enjoyed a delicious buffet which included a beautifully iced cake made by Frances Riddell to celebrate the 78th birthday of Holmer WI.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, June 5 at 7.30pm in St Mary's Church, Grandstand Road.

Malcolm Penny will be the speaker and his subject is Wanderings of a Wildlife Film Maker. Many may remember the Survival series of programmes in the 70s and 80s; Malcolm was behind the cameras during that series. All women are invited to attend.
