Halesworth & Southwold Community News March 2019 15 Rubbish! Halesworth WI
AT the last meeting, Wednesday 19th February, Chairlady Molly welcomed two visitors, one of whom was over from USA. A minute’s silence was held
...and plenty of it! We had a waterborne litter pick recently and collected a good bag including a selection of plastic, a football, and a collection box (empty, of course) from a local charity. We used the long rake from the bank which we can do at this time of the year when the water vole are still dormant. Later on we'll use the boat to fish out the bottles etc that seem to find their way into the canal during the summer holidays.
Spring has sprung (almost). The recent warm weather has woken up the waterway. The moorhen have started chasing each other but the lonely egret is still looking for a mate. The snowdrops have come back too - a welcome sight. We were very sorry to hear
of the death of Ezra Leverett. Ezra was a great supporter of New Reach restoration and had been part of the original group of locals who did so much to revive the canal in the 1990s. He will be greatly missed.
Halesworth in Bloom
WE hope you’re enjoying all the Spring bulbs appearing in the town park and along verges in the town. The crocus in the park have been the best ever this year, and now daffies are following their lead, then wood anenomes, wild garlic, bluebells, comfrey. As well as bulb planting every year, we have lots of maintenance gardening to do about the town – the Memorial Garden, the Thoroughfare planters, the town park entrance borders, the new car park border and lots of smaller ones that individuals look after. So if you’re feeling inspired by Spring flowers and would like to get involved doing a bit of gardening around the town, why not come along
on the last Friday of the month to the Memorial Garden at 2.30pm our next work party is on Friday 29th March and you can be sure of a warm welcome.
Come along with
a trowel for an hour or so of sociable gardening.

in memory of Janet Hold who has died recently. She had been a longstanding member. Helen and Steve Murray from the Art Box in Chediston were our speakers for this month. They run a creative art workshop for adults of age 16+ who have special needs. Ten years ago, Helen was
asked to give a demonstration to a group. She really enjoyed the
experience and found
the adults responsive and appreciative. Later Steve joined her, they now have 14 clients. They are helped by volunteers and carers. Helen and Steve gave an
insight into how their client’s skills developed as they became more confident with themselves. They showed
exhibits from clients’ works. These were colourful, clever and very impressive. Some of this work is being exhibited at Wenhaston Village Hall Café and is well worth seeing. Work is also exhibited at different venues throughout the year. The Art Box Studio can also frame pictures. Profits from this go towards running costs as they are a non-profit making organisation. WI members took a vote
to donate money individually towards the cost of a chair for St Mary’s Church. The
competition for our
favourite celebratory card was won by Pat Miller. Next month’s meeting will be a cooking demonstration by Jane Sago. Halesworth WI welcomes new members.
