Guest speaker - Tudor Jones

Mr Tudor Jones, Chair of the Tommy Cooper Society, spoke to the Elderberries about the campaign to erect a statue of the comic in Caerphilly and all the excitement when Sir Anthony Hopkins came to unveil it.  He also mentioned the Society’s work providing defibrillators in our community.

This afternoon’s session was a new experience for the Elderberries when Mary Hughes kindly gave us a chance to try needle felting.

Mary came fully prepared with the special wool & needles needed, “eggs” & even suggestions for designs.

At the end Mary awarded us 10/10 because we heeded her warning about the danger of stabbing our fingers and miraculously no-one broke a needle!

It was a lovely, relaxing activity and we could chat while “working”.  We look forward to another chance to do something in the late autumn ready for Christmas.
