January Meeting

Happy New Year to all Members!

Despite the cold weather and many members suffering from colds, a warm welcome met everyone who braved the elements to come down to the Trinity Centre.
After the business part of the meeting and a discussion of the Resolutions, Sybil then organised a 'Beetle Drive' to take the place of our expected speaker.  As well as being good fun it gave everyone the chance to catch up with news.

Members were also asked to check out our new facebook page to keep up with current news.

January 'babies' received birthday wishes and cards and we all received an invite to Angela's 50th birthday bash at the weekend.

Christmas Party

The hall looked really festive as we arrived to the sound of Christmas music, a welcome drink and some lovely smells from the kitchen.

Sue Dixon received special birthday wishes and flowers from Mary followed by a very short business meeting.
We then enjoyed a wonderful buffet (thanks to Pat Henderson and Pam Barraclough) and some fantastic music from Holy Trinity's hand-Bell Ringers.

Happy 70th Birthday Sue

Federation Carol Concert

Despite the ice and snow Mary, Peggy, Ann and Jayne travelled in to Sheffield's Victoria Hall Methodist Church for this years Federation Carol Service.

After a leisurely lunch and a quick look at the shops we were soon meeting friends from other WI groups as we enjoyed a really lovely mixture of carols and readings.


Well done to the ladies from Sprotbrough WI as they entertained us with a nice Christmas medley.

 Well done to the Federation Leisure Committee for their hard work in organising the service as well as organist Robert Webb for playing superbly.

The service certainly put us in the mood for Wednesday's Christmas Party.

Ten-Pin Bowling

Another good afternoon of fun as the WI ladies notched up a good victory against Holy Trinity's Friday Club.  Well done to Julia who finished the individual winner as well.

Christmas Tree Festival

Holy Trinity looked fantastic with 18 trees decorated by different community groups and as WI members from Friday Club came to look round they all agreed that our tree looked great.

Ann Marson dressed as Mary Christmas did a great job acting as a church guide.

What a fantastic community event to be part of.
