Thorne Countrywomen’s Association reflected on the year’s activities at their annual general meeting.
“We have had a variety of activities and speakers throughout the year”, said the association.
“In November last year we had Karen from Phoenix health centre, followed by our Christmas meal in December.
“In January we started the year with ‘the best and worst of Christmas’.
“In February we had Cliff and chips, March was Howard from the great British bake off; two lovely evenings with food included.
“Then in April we had the funny side of being blind. Another food tasting evening in May and our favourite florist Jess showing us how to make a good buttonhole. There was also a trip out to the theatre.
“In July we invited other local CWA groups to join us as we had a historic treasure hunt around Thorne. August saw us at the races, and a craft making. It was also the month when two of our ladies did the great north run and was sponsored to raise funds for Firefly.
“In September we had the owl visit us, and the ladies from the owl sanctuary gave us a talk.
“So another full year for our Thorne Countrywomen’s Association. We have entered the CWA craft competitions at Wetherby, getting a few placed prizes.
“We enjoyed welcoming new members to our group, as well as visiting other groups, and have invited them to join us during the year too. Something that we intend to continue to do in the coming year.”
Thorne Countrywomen’s Association meet at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday in the month at the sea cadet unit on Union Road in Thorne.
