Our annual general meeting was good. So many things to look at appreciate and some good decisions made. It was a happy, productive day. We had our fine spinning competition and we’d like to congratulate the winner, Wendy , and then the contributions made by our other spinners. It was just lovely to look at the fine wool they had spun. It’s a big achievement. We had some great things to show and tell, too, so all of that along with a really nice lunch made for a very good day!
