Fundraiser – Coffee Morning

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We were very fortunate with this date for our first fundraiser as the town was buzzing for the start of the International Musical Eisteddfod, the festival where  it is said “Wales welcomes the World”!! So a good Welsh welcome was provided in the form of cakes!

We took to the streets armed with sample of our baked goods to lure the crowds in!

A sterling team effort on all fronts meant that we raised a whopping £300……excellent effort ladies!!

Summer Evening Walk

Our first summer outside meeting will certainly go down in “Valley Girls WI history” as we were blessed with the balmiest of summer evenings.

We met in the car park of the Hand Hotel and were given some background information from Ros Stockdale, about the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in which we live.

The walk took us across the bridge over the River Dee.

And to the canal where we met up with another member of the AONB team, Rhys for some more facts about the area.

Our climb up towards Dinas Bran continued.

Stopping at “The Pancake”.

Timed to perfection so that we enjoyed a glass of fizz (alcoholic or soft!) and toasted a successful beginning for Valley Girls WI, just as the sun was setting!
