Kelsall WI MIni Show, Wednesday 6th November 2019
At our regular AGMs in the month November , it is sometimes the case that we have an activity of some sort, after the business , and the voting in of the new committee
This year, for the first time in nearly twenty years, we had a mini show , along the lines of the Cheshire Show, but a lot less serious.The show was the brainchild of Margaret and Pat, who were solely responsible for the organisation of the whole event. As the organisation of the event progressed, they hoped that our members would enter into the spirit of the more relaxed aspect of competitive entry, and they were delighted with the response of our members. There was a total of 82 entries!
Four judges gave up their time to come from different parts of Cheshire to judge our efforts, and a lot of fun was had by us all as we viewed all the entries following the judging.
There were four categories:
FOOD Mince pies
FLOWERS Table arrangement
Posy in a Teacup
CRAFT Christmas Present
ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Handmade Christmas Card
Photograph of Local Scene
And the winners were;
Food Dorothy Hunt the Joan Williams Cup
Flowers Avril Butler the Jubilee Cup
Craft Heather Leather the Hilda Vernon Cup
Art and Photography Margaret Davies a new glass trophy was awarded for this category.
Best in Show (members' vote) Margaret Davies, for her painting of Eastgate Street.
Of course, to remind you, this Mini Show was held at our AGM, and the most important information to come out of that part of the meeting is that :
Our new president is Dorothy Hunt.
( The new committee will be posted soon )
