Candle Making was on the agenda at the third official meeting of the newly established Country Women’s Association, Two Wells branch.
Aptly named ‘Wells Girls’, the group met on Tuesday April 18 at the Two Wells Bowling Club.
The first half of the evening was a formal meeting where future fundraising, events and potential workshop ideas were discussed.
The trading table offered fruits and vegetable from member’s gardens and home-made dips and spreads.
Children of members were occupied with a craft activity and happily chatted away with each other.
“We will try to always have a kid’s activity,” explained branch secretary, Angela Bryant.
After the official meeting concluded, the real fun began.
Kelly Phillips led a demonstration in candle making and then all members had the opportunity to create their own candle in a small jar or glass they had brought along with them.
Supper was then enjoyed and a lovely sense of cohesion, cooperation and belonging to a group that was continuing old, but important and relevant traditions, was felt throughout the room.
If you would like to join the CWA, which is a not for profit, non party political and non sectarian organisation, made up of volunteers who work to promote the welfare and conditions of life for women and children, then get in contact with your local Two Wells branch firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next month’s meeting will feature a guest speaker from the Gawler Northern Resource Centre (NRC).
Upcoming craft workshops include knitting and basket weaving, and a Bingo fundraiser evening will be held on the Friday June 17, which will conveniently coincide with the Blue Light Disco, venue TBA.
New talents can be learned and friendships made, so give it a try.
Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month.
