The Post – Tuesday 9th Oct @ 7:30pm

Starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, directed by Steven Spielberg
A thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light. The Post marks the first time Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have collaborated on a project.

Tickets are £5 (no booking required), and as usual the bar will be open

Hope House Coffee Morning – 21 Nov @ 10:00am

The next Ashford event will be the Coffee Morning here at Ashford Farm on Wednesday 21st November 10.00am – 12.00noon. It will be the same format as previous years with a cake stall, bring and buy, tombola and raffle. Hope House shop will also bring a selection of Christmas cards and other merchandise. As before, if anyone has any gifts, bottles, cakes etc which they would like to donate, that would be very much appreciated. Entry £2.00 to include ad lib coffee, mince pies and biscuits.
If you missed it back on 24th March, there is another chance to see ‘An Evening with Gerry Acton, from Painting to Publishing and back again with a little rugby thrown in’ including a two course Ploughman’s Supper, at St Peter’s Church Hall, Henley Rd, Ludlow on Friday 19th October, 7.00pm for 7.30pm start.

Finally Gerry Acton has produced the most amazing calendar for Hope House featuring his artwork. It’s a very high class product using top quality paper, sold in a printed presentation case and it has been designed and produced at no cost to the charity, so that all the proceeds go directly to Hope House. The calendar is available from Marilyn Heath (831346) or ourselves for £10. It will be on display and for sale at the Coffee Morning.

October 2018

The Knit & Stitch craft group will soon be restarting after its summer break. Hasn’t it been a lovely summer? There has been plenty of time to get into the garden, go on lovely little trips out and do some summer stitching. So much easier on the eyes when the light is good and colours are clear. For me, the long summer days have lent themselves to the odd project or two. I’ve experimented with doing a bit of fabric dyeing and printing in the garden. Much less messy than doing it in the kitchen!
Now’s the time to start thinking about those unfinished projects which may be lurking in your cupboard or hiding in the bottom of your sewing/knitting bag. Autumn is the ideal time to dust them off and get them finished. Maybe they need re-vamping, re-sizing or just need to have some new life put into them. If you no longer want or need the item, then how about finishing it for charity, or as a Christmas gift? If you haven’t anything ‘on the go’ then the time’s right to think about something you’d like to make.
Help will be at hand to guide you through any project. Between us we have lots of skills and expertise which we are happy to share. There are a couple of sewing machines we can use and I am putting together a box of ideas for charity makes, so there will be something for knitters and stitchers who do not have their own projects.
Next meeting: Monday 15 October 2–4pm at Ashford Carbonel village hall.
If you can, please bring along anything you’ve made and share it at our Show & Tell session. It would be lovely to see what you’ve been up to.
Everyone welcome.

Ashford Carbonell’s Car Boot Sale 2nd September 2018

The best Car Boot to date! A wonderful day! People came to buy and sell from miles around and there was a great atmosphere – what’s more we made around £1850 for Village Hall funds – a record!!
All the money raised from the Car boot Sale came from selling the villagers’ bric-a-brac, books, local produce, scrummy hot dogs, bacon baps, cakes and refreshments and car booting.
All the leftovers from the bric-a-brac went to Pam Reynolds who is a fund raiser for a Leukaemia cancer ward.
Many, many thanks to all who contributed in some way …whether it was donating produce or bric-a-brac, helping sell the goods, directing traffic, providing food and drink, publicity, collecting and sorting all the donations, car booting, clearing up at the end or supporting by coming along on the day.

September 2018

Our president, Chris, welcomed members and guest to our September meeting and said how nice it was to see everybody after our August break. Members have been very busy and imaginative in decorating their bunting triangles which I’m sure they will look fantastic when 95 of them are strung together as room decorations for our 95th Anniversary celebrations at our November meeting. We did really well at the Shrewsbury Flower Show with our entry gaining a yellow rosette, 3rd prize, plus winning the silver cup for the best staging. The ladies worked very hard on each component of the exhibit and both prizes were well deserved. After attending the workshop, Janice Forsyth, has completed her ‘twinchie’, how anybody can create such and exquisite piece of handwork on a 2 inch square piece of fabric is beyond me. It is hoped that 120+ twinchies will be received, that being the number of Wi s in Shropshire, they will then all be stitched together to create a vibrant wall hanging which will be on display at the Centenary Meeting. The speaker for our meeting was Michael Theobalds who gave an interesting and humorous talk on Saint Helena. The volcanic island, in the South Atlantic Ocean, is one of the most remote islands in the world. Michael has extensive experience in educational matters and having visited the island for a month previously, was offered a twelve month contract to work and improve their educational system. He was thrilled with the appointment and when he informed his wife she said how exciting and worthwhile the project would be…….. but that she wasn’t going. Never the less he went and enjoyed the challenge. Cath Corfield, our hard working Programme Secretary, briefly went through what she had in store for our 2019 programme, it certainly sounds very interesting and diverse, something to suit everybody. Our next meeting is 10th 0ctober in Caynham, Jack Dent will give us a talk on Magic and the competition is ‘Something magical or spooky’. Everybody welcome….if you dare! Just a brief word to wish Good Luck to the new WI in Ludlow. Sandra Warner
