Digital photography lessons in Rimington

Husky trail"Along the Husky Trail" was the title of an interesting talk to Rimington WI by Mr Alan Cowie. He recalled the journey, as part of a fund-raising Arctic expedition, travelling by dog sled in Northern Scandinavia. He showed slides of the stages of the trek along with anecdotes and descriptions of life in the Arctic Circle.

Three teams are to take part in the LFWI fun quiz in West Bradford Village Hall at the end of Janauary and a group of members are looking forward to attending the production of "Oklahoma" in St Mary's Centre in February.

At the LFWI spring council meeting on March 16th Michael Portillo will be a guest speaker. A coach for members in the area will be arranged.

The annual Christmas walk, arranged by Mrs B. Spencer, round Waddow and Waddington had been greatly enjoyed. Non-walkers joined the group for a festive meal at Tim's Country Kitchen.

The proposed class, or course, on digital photography came a step nearer when it was suggested an introductory session be held on February 1st, and Mrs Vivien Meath will recount her years in journalism "Between the Lines".
