WI gets needled

Stanhoe WI members learn about acupuncture.

Nineteen members and guests heard Nicola Porter give a very informative talk on acupuncture at their January meeting

There are many different forms of acupuncture, with the true form harking back to traditional Chinese medicine. It has many facets other than needles and is used to treat the person, not the direct area of pain. We were shown Moxa Balm, burning therapy, a seed on a plaster used via the ear, a therapy cup, pressure point bands and a special spoon, all of which are used in specific ways on the body.

Nicola stressed the importance of visiting a registered acupuncturist who will have a three-year degree training as well as supervised treatment sessions before being allowed to practise. Local practitioners can be found on the website of the British Acupuncture Council.

This created a great deal of interest amongst the audience and many questions arose for Nicola to answer very fully.

In the WI Business section afterwards members listened to the five Resolutions proposed for voting at the national AGM, and voted on the one that they felt to be most useful to be carried forward. Centenary Year Booklets were also offered, names were taken for various visits, and very importantly Smartie tubes were given out for members to refill with coins for the charity of the year which members will nominate for group support.

Christmas lights

Please support Tapping House in memory of Linda Scales.

The Christmas light show in The Green is bigger and better each year, thanks to the hard work of the Scales family, and this year Stanhoe has a display to rival Blackpool and Thursford.

In past years, Derek Scales has raised money for All Saints’ church, Stanhoe, by making a collection from those who appreciate his time and effort. However, since his late wife Linda’s illness, he has been raising funds instead for Tapping House, the Norfolk Hospice, as is the case this year.

Linda Scales

Stanhoe remembers Linda, who died recently.

Linda Scales (1957–2019) died peacefully on the 25 November, at Tapping House Hospice, after a long illness borne with courage, dignity and humour, writes her close friend Maureen Corrigan.

Linda Scales

Thoughout her ordeal, she never stopped thinking about others which was the style of her life – giving and never asking. Even at the end, she was still asking that all who had cared for her should be thanked and ensured of her gratitude.

Linda was a very special human being, and remarkable woman, spreading her love and warmth to all with whom she came into contact

She is deeply missed by her devoted family and her many friends, but we are all the richer for having had her in our lives.

Visit Linda’s Facebook page to read many more fine tributes.

Linda’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 10 December at 1 pm in All Saints’ church, Stanhoe. All are welcome.

The family writes: “Mum insisted that this be a celebration of her life, she requested that people attending wear something colourful, not just black.”

“Family flowers only, Mum requested donations to The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House. Donations can be made on the day or to John Lincoln funeral directors.”

“We would like to invite everyone back to the Duck Inn following the service to raise a glass to Mum!”

Festive flowers

Stanhoe and Barwick WI learn flower arranging with local expert Gary Bocking.

At the December meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI the room was packed with members and guests to see Gary Bocking, a local flower arranging celebrity, create some Christmas flower arrangements.

A self-taught florist, Gary was full of hints and tips on creating both a Christmas wreath for the door, and a table arrangement. These tips varied from preparation of the supports, where to buy them, wiring flowers and fruit, adding candles, and creating a ribbon bow. He used a wide range of foliage which was both varied in texture and fragrance, and he explained clearly the names of the various foliage plants used. Both frosting and glitter were easily added.

Everyone admired the stunning wreath and the table arrangement on completion. Generously Gary gave the table arrangement as a raffle prize, which was won by a lucky visitor.

After tea and delicious cakes members concluded the meeting with WI Business, and a presentation of a centenary booklet written by a member, and a centenary mug made by a local potter, was made to every member.
