Sunshine at Christmas
Seventy members and guests of the Sunshine Club enjoyed a splendid Christmas lunch on 15 December 2014 in a festive Bernard Hall. The logistics of feeding us all were amazing (and would terrify me), with a sizeable number of efficient helpers looking after us.
The children from the village school entertained us with a delightful Christmas concert – and keenly competitive games of Bingo followed!
Many thanks to Sherry and her team for a most enjoyable occasion.

Malicious Emails in Circulation
There is a malicious email doing the rounds and one or two villagers’ PCs have already become infected.
If you receive an email containing a link to a suspicious web page, even if the email is from someone you know, delete the email immediately. Do not click on the link. The email will typically have a bland subject – often the sender’s name.
If you do click on the link, your email account will probably be hacked and will be used to send out more of these emails to the contacts in your address book. If you suspect that your email account has been compromised, change your email account password immediately. Make sure that your internet security software is up to date and run a virus scan on your PC.

W.I. Meeting Tuesday 11th November
After the general business and talking through all the interesting W.I. activities in our monthly news letter, we were introduced to Ms. Marilyn Wright, who had come along to give us a talk on the history of spinning. We learnt that a variety of natural fibres are used but she demonstrated how a lump of sheep’s wool can be twisted (quite easily if you know how!) into a thread using various types of spindles from the very simple one to the much more modern treadle type. We were amazed to learn that the art of spinning started around 20,000 years ago, when it was mostly unmarried women who sat spinning, hence the name “spinster” originated!
We finished the meeting as usual with a cup of tea and biscuits and a good chance to have a chat!
