Busy period for Wells Girls

It has been a successful few months for the CWA Wells Girls.
For those who are not aware we are a relatively new night branch of the South Australian Country Women’s Association.
Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Two Wells Bowling Club, starting at 7pm.
You don’t have to be a skilled seamstress or creative cook to get involved; you may bring something entirely different to the table that, we as a group, can learn from.
It is a fantastic opportunity to get involved within the community in a somewhat relaxed manner.
Meeting people and connecting over a cuppa, sharing experiences while learning new skills.
Those interested in joining our branch are welcome to come to three meetings to see what we are about before making the commitment to join as new members.
In July we held our 2nd annual meeting where we elected new officer bearers. Following this meeting we worked together to make knotted dog toys, “Puppy Pulls”.
During this activity we encouraged and helped each other while chatting over a cuppa.
As part of the Adelaide Plains Library school holiday program we will be running a session where children can learn to make their own Puppy Pulls (contact the library for more info or to book your place).
At our August meeting we endeavoured to create reusable produce bags from sheer material, these bags are a great way of reducing our use single use plastic bags.
From the simple idea, people created and brought their own versions, which we could discuss the different approaches used.
At our September meeting we utilised in season fruit and made lemon cordial. Lemons were juiced and zested; following one of many available recipes, a Bickford’s style lemon cordial was created.
Each member at the meeting was able to take a couple of bottles home.
The finished product tasted delicious.
One of the events we regularly hold is a bingo night; these coincide with the blue light discos.
Parents waiting while their children are at the disco can come over to the bowling club and enjoy a night of bingo.
Our recent night took on a different theme, Monte Carlo.
From feedback I have received, a fun night was had.
Our next bingo night is on October 27 at the Two Wells Bowling Club.
Our next meeting is going to be held October 17 at 7pm in the Two Wells Bowling Club.
The Wells Girls CWA along with the Virginia CWA branch will be holding a High Tea event on Sunday October 29 at 12.30pm at the Two Wells Bowls Club.
Cost is $25 per person, please contact Evelyn on 0419 811 983 or Caroline on 0418 781 007 to book a spot.
