Townswomen's Guild - April 2019



In March, Miss A Hoyland with her talk ‘Never judge a book by its cover’ was a delight.  A professional musician (woodwind) in West End theatre orchestras, she decided to add another string to her bow (sorry), by training as an Image Consultant, to advise people how to always be polished and well dressed.  Armed with a colour wheel and specially made demonstration garments she enlisted the help of a member, and herself, to showcase her techniques and theories.  Topics covered were complexion colouring, curved and straight body shapes, long and short lengths to the waist, accessories, pattern sizes on materials and tricks to improve body line generally.  This was a fun talk which we all enjoyed. 

On Wednesday 3rd April ten members attended the Townswomen’s Guild 90th Thanksgiving Celebration Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square conducted by Revd Jonathan Evens.  Area Federation Banners were paraded, the Trustees made an interesting presentation featuring the development and achievements of the Guild, and we finished with the TWG song.  However, a special mention must go to the Chamber Choir of Burntwood School (an academy school for girls in L B Wandsworth) who sang an eclectic mix of pieces throughout, making a truly excellent contribution, which complimented the passage of the service, hymns, and readings, perfectly. 

Our May meeting features a talk by Bob Sinfield entitled ‘The great unwatched’.  This will be held on Thursday, 16th May at 1.30 for 1.45 pm in St Saviour’s Church Hall, Grand Drive.  Visitors or new members are always welcome. 

Dorothy Raymond, Vice Chairman
