The Treasury Team – March ramblings

Margaret and David have been just a tad busy during the last week or two with the whole range of tasks surrounding the annual renewal of members’ subscriptions.  We have completed the creation of well over 1000 new membership cards each showing a member’s name and number – not high priority on the menu for […]

Bird Watching (Thursday)

We had an excellent day at Brandon Marsh, Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s HQ and flagship reserve just a couple of miles our side of Coventry.  I think some of our group would have been quite content to sit in the café and just watch the birds on the feeders!  Well, there were nuthatch, reed bunting and […]

Singing for Fun

Society Today – February meeting

Global warming is the most threatening trend humanity is now facing.  Chris Brown, a member of our group, took us through a very informative and clear analysis of this, calmly drawing our attention to the disasters to come as well as the interlinked aspects and dreadful outcomes of the many, if small, increases in temperature.

Why Quilt?

Why Quilt? Quilters are often asked: Why quilt?  It’s a legitimate question.  Historically, quilting was a utilitarian craft.  People needed to make quilts to keep warm at night and generally, resources were scarce so the small pieces of fabric from used articles were sewn together to make a larger piece of fabric to create a […]
