At our April meeting we had Eddie Smith give us a talk on ‘Heights to Hats’. She started her working life working as a member of the cabin crew for BA but after 38 years with them, when voluntary redundancy was offered to her, she decided to go to college and she trained to be a milliner. She has now converted her garage into a workshop and makes some beautiful hats. Eddie talked to us about the process of hat making and had also brought along some of her hats to show the members.
Members were reminded that our May meeting on 15th May is when we discuss and vote on this year’s resolution-‘Mental Health Matters’ but we are also going to be celebrating the Royal wedding and will be serving drinks and canapes and members are encouraged to dress appropriately-in red, white and blue, tiaras…..even wedding dresses!!
