March WI Meeting – Different Shades of Green

Our Positive Planet group arranged this evening for us. We split into small groups and 4 members visited each table for 15 min or so to lead a discussion on different aspects of looking after our planet. Pat showed us different potting composts, encouraging us to go for peat free options. Chris joined Kirsty from Weigh of the World in Northwich and talked about zero waste packaging.

Sue explained the life cycle of the huge Bumble Bee we see in our garden at this time of year and Gill showed us environmentally friendly bathroom/cleaning products.

A really informative and sociable evening, thanks to our group leaders for making it so interesting.

Members were given their programme for the coming year, and a pack of sunflower seeds – watch this space in September to see whose grows the tallest. The Darts Team were congratulated on winning the Group League – their trophy was on display.

A calendar of the different activities for the coming month or so was shared– a visit to Smiths garden centre, an outing to Shrewsbury, a garden party at Helen’s, the Cheshire Literary Lunch and meetings of our various subgroups, Lots going on to keep us busy.
