Milverton, Somerset

WI December update

Milverton WI members and guests were treated to a wonderful display of wood carving by Bob Selway. Bob brought a lathe and various pieces of wood. He chose a small round piece of oak with which to make a bowl; it was difficult to imagine how this could happen!

After carefully working Bob turned this piece of wood into a charming little bowl with beautiful markings and a lovely shine. He is a very skilled craftsman and everyone present enjoyed watching this transformation.

We held a raffle and Shirley Blagden was the proud winner of the bowl. Next month, on 7 December, we will be delighted to welcome Zoe Smith whose subject is ‘The Eagle with the Sunlit Eye’. Zoe is a wonderful speaker and we hope many members and friends will join us..

We meet at 2.30pm in the Victoria Rooms.
