In January, we welcomed Judy Hubble, who gave us a fascinating talk on Shugborough Hall.  This was accompanied by photographs of the hall, including many of rooms and areas not now open to the public.

February was the Guild’s Hyacinth Bulb Show. This was another successful and enjoyable event. There were 42 exhibits, giving an excellent display in all the classes, which greatly impressed the judge, Gwen Johnson.

The BTJ Challenge Trophy for most points in the Show, was awarded to Brian and Sonia Boughey.

The Best Exhibit in Show was won by Frances Evans.  The trophy for the best exhibit by someone who had not previously won a prize, was won by Jenny Baggaley.

After the judging and presentations, we had our usual buffet supper and Social Evening.

On April 25th, we welcome Paul Woodward, who will give a talk entitled ‘The Maple Man-Acers”.

MILWICH WI REPORT  March 2019

Members met with Helen Mancy and Verity Conner, two County Executives, at the March meeting when it was agreed with sad hearts  to suspend Milwich W I, as a committee was unable to re-form.

Helen Hocknell, President, reported there have been many moments of joy and laughter over the years with celebratory meals, pantomimes, modelling fashion clothes and especially when the husbands brought the house down when they performed the “striptease” number!

Over the last nine months we have been to the Riverside Restaurant at Stafford College, had talks on Sweets, Healthy Living, Garderobes (that is Toilets) and the “Milwich Male Voice Choir” joined members to sing carols for our Christmas meeting. We attended the County Show and our local Duck Race when our W I advertised for more support.

Members have carried on by providing Green Lea School with a Christmas Lunch and each week teaching at the Craft Club, the numbers of children attending has risen to eighteen from the usual twelve.

Helen thanked Mary Allen as Joint Chairperson, May Yates as Secretary, Sonia Boughey as Treasurer and the members of the committee who have all supported her and helped her over the not so easy months.

She also thanked the past presidents, Elaine Hodson, Mary Bull, and Sue Lloyd as well as past committee members who have contributed so much over the years.

Helen said it had been an honour to be Milwich W I President but was sad that after the ninety two years, Milwich W I is suspended.

The evening closed after members enjoyed refreshments supplied by Members and a glass of wine.

Green Lea Nursery and wraparound care

This month we will be focusing on Easter, we have lots of craft and cookery activities planned, from making Easter cards for our loved ones to learning the art of the chocolatiers and seeing if we can make our own chocolate Easter creations. We will also be looking at all the new life that surrounds us at Easter/Spring time, from the baby lambs we see in the fields around the school, to the new plants and leaves sprouting after their winter sleep. We are hoping to get into our garden and start some planting soon, fingers crossed Jack Frost has gone away and spring is on its way.

Miss Swingewood is back in the full swing of our Friday forest school sessions, we love having her back after maternity leave, and we have been having fun in the mud kitchen, making dens and also learning how to use the strikers correctly and safely. Miss Swingewood has lots of activities planned especially getting to use more tools, so we can learn how to use these items in a safe environment.

The Friends of Green Lea (FOGL) have organised a special Easter extravaganza for all the school and nursery children, it’s going to be a fantastic afternoon with crafts, Easter bonnet parade, and of course an Easter egg hunt.  A special thank you to Mrs Wilson (head teacher) and Kate Kite (FOGL chairperson) and all the FOGL committee members for organising this event for all the children to enjoy.

And finally nursery is now full on a Friday, and we only have very limited places on the other days, We would advise anybody who is interested in the nursery contact us as soon as possible to secure a place.

Green Lea Nursery offers the 30 hours funding (subject to criteria) we are also signed up to the tax free child care scheme, please see a member of staff for more information.

Green Lea Nursery runs Monday-Friday, sessions are 9.00am-1.30pm or 9.00am-3.00pm. Green Lea wraparound care sessions are 7.30am-9.00am and/or 3.00pm-5.45pm (term time only) for any further information please contact 07974719522 or 01889505309.
