St Ives


February 2019

Today, 26th Feb, the St Ives Inner Wheel celebrated their 57th Charter Anniversary at The Dolphin Hotel. President, Janet Cockcroft opened the meeting by saying how pleased she was at the group attaining that age especially as her Mother was one of the founder members. The  speaker, Isobel Lattimore, gave a talk called "Stitches in Time". This was on the repair of church garments and cloths which were very delicate. She used the word "passimentere", which I am sure somebody will use one day in a crossword, which is for trimming, adornment or braiding. It also includes working with tassels and fringes. Many thanks to all who joined us and what a wonderful sunny day we had.

Saw us having a picnic in Joyce's lovely garden.  The weather was kind and the wasps stayed away.



Our speaker was John Gibbons from SERV - more commonly known as 'Blood Bikers'.  John's talk was extremely interesting, we learnt that all members of the organisation are volunteers and cover 365 days a year.
