    Dianne, Colleen and Diana held the first of our fundraising Garage Sales a few weeks back. It was very successful. They presold approximately 100 strawberry plants and a few other donated items, and we had a great response from the public who bought up large. They had further donations after the Sale, so they decided to have a further one. They this last weekend of October 2021, a week earlier than planned as they thought the uncertainty around the South Island Covid cases could mean another lockdown. They had another great response and items not sold were then donated to the South Alive program for a charity event they are holding. The silky pillow evening at Beth’s was a great success, with heaps of pillows being delivered to the Cancer Society. The new labels look great on them.

    Members of IW Club of Riccarton kept themselves busy during the lockdown with a number of activities.

      Wishing the Inner Wheel Club of Riccarton will get together soon. Averill at the Lions Wishing Well, Lake Tekapo on 4th September. (IWNZ Day)
    Hannie ordered a vege box that really challenged her and she made daikon pickles. It turns out, are really delicious.
      Jan our wonderful knitter from the Y Gym with her latest selection of colour coded granny squares. Jocelyn has since joined the squares into a big beautiful blanket
      Janet and the boys taken last week when the three of them made Lolly cake for their Dad’s Father’s Day present. They were as proud as punch!!! They made the cards to go with the cake and had a lovely time putting everything together.

    Jocelyn knitted hats for big grand daughters and a small one for a little friend. She also finished rugs waiting to go to Plunket.

      Cecile started this Christmas wall hanging in January thinking it would take a year to do. Lockdown was a sort of blessing as it had got well behind schedule. The loom has made lots of rugs over the years but this one is using embroidery cottons instead of wool. 98 knots to the row. 187 completed—half way there but no more Lockdowns please!
      On Sunday Margaret and Keith went to look at the daffodils in the gardens. They parked by Helmores Lane and walked only to find the gates locked. However, walking along the path between the river and carpark they spotted newly planted Magnolias just coming into flower in this beautiful deep wine colour .
     

    Margaret made good use of the time spent watching the ParaOlympics by knitting cardigans and beanies for Catherine’s midwife friend Mary.  


      Barbara photographed Planters made from red zone letter boxes, at the Richmond Community garden by Avebury House.
      Last Lockdown everyone was looking for yeast to make bread. Have you made some yummy fresh loaves this time round?
      Myra noted these daffodils on her daily walk admiring the progress of spring.

    Thank you for sharing this and inspiring others!

    Thanks to the generosity of the band of knitters the club has been able to distribute knitting and crochet items. These were all donated in the three months prior to lockdown. That is a fabulous job well done. Thanks everyone. 

    The items were donated to Maternity Ward, Barnados, Mummys in Need, Plunket, Men’s Shelter, St Vincent / Women’s Refuge and they are still gathering items for Midwives.

    Plunket were very pleased to receive all these knitted and crocheted items. It is amazing where all this knitting comes from. This was before Lockdown so we can only guess what has been made by our industrious ladies over the last few weeks. Lots and lots of hours have gone into these lovely pieces. They are very much appreciated by those who receive them.

    Pink Morning Tea to raise funds for Look Good Feel Better, which is a free community-based programme that provides cancer-affected women (and men) with techniques to look after their skin, along with practical tips and tools on makeup application to increase confidence. The class includes relaxation breathing techniques and advice for those experiencing hair loss. After morning tea, members settled in to make bunnies with skilled crafter Laurie Breadmore at the helm. There was also great excitement at the beginning of the month as our brand-new banner (purchase assisted by an extremely welcome IW grant) arrived and had its first airing at the committee meeting. Committee members toasted the banner – and the organisation – with glasses of bubbly, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
