Collieston & Slains WRI members met this week to celebrate their Burns Super. After a delicious meal the evening was rounded of by hillarious entertainment from guest speaker Laura Greig as she shared with us her interpretation of how Scotland had influenced our nation and the wider world.
Collieston & Slains ladies were in a very creative mood for their last meeting of 2014. With the help of seasonal music and festive fare the ladies snipped, sprayed, pinned and created a variety of Christmas decorations for their homes during the festive season. A ‘Secret Santa’ gift topped off the evening, and a happy time was had by all. Merry Christmas to you all from the WRI
Festive flowers are the order of the day for this month’s meeting! Bring along your own favourite ‘bling’ and create a christmas decoration to die for.. Unleash your creative talents and enjoy the company of your fellow members as we prepare to see out 2014.
Paula Hawthorn from Newburgh shared with us the story of KAZURI BEADS. In Swahili Kazuri means small & beautiful. Paula actively works through her church to raise money to help give a new life to abandoned babies in Kenya. After a short presentation ladies had a try themselves at making their very own KAZURI bead necklaces as well as trying on a selection of Kenyan scarves.
A huge THANK YOU to all helpers, providers of food and raffle prizes and most importantly to everyone who supported our annual soup and pudding lunch last Sunday. A fantastic sum of just over £390 was raised on the day. With grateful thanks from the ladies of Colliston and Slains SWRI.
The next meeting of Collieston and Slains WRI will be held on Monday 10th November 2014 at 7.30pm in Collieston Community Centre. Prospective new members are most welcome to attend. Our guest speaker this month will be Paula Hawthorne and she wil be sharing with us details of her ‘Beads for Africa’ project.
