As part of their 80th birthday celebrations, members of Scotton & District WI attended a lunch at Gainsborough Golf Club.
Every member was presented with an embroidered card made by member Maureen Webb and a commemorative Scotton & District WI mug with chocolates.
A cake decorated with the WI logo and all the members’ names, was made by member Lynne Wetherall.
The meal was much enjoyed and the ladies agreed it was a fitting end to their special birthday year.
The group’s December meeting was all about chocolate – a popular subject – and featured Fiona Sciolti from Sciolti of Brigg, who demonstrated the art of tempering chocolate, piping and decorating.
Fiona is an award winning International Artisan chocolatier who draws upon her love of natural country flavours to make botanical chocolates.
She showed how to make delicious truffles – with a smidgeon of gin – which were then coated in tempered chocolate and then piped to make little Christmas trees.
