Welcoming Athletes of the World

You may have noticed that a certain sporting event is taking place in London this summer. To mark the occasion the Guild invited members to make postcards to represent each participating country. Oxford Branch was asked to make cards that represent Yemen.

11 July 2012: Summer Social

As usual, our July meeting was a social event. This year we invited members to make a "Magic Wallet" for the member’s competition. These competitions are light hearted and fun and it was clear that those who entered had fun making their entry.

Only days before the Olympic torch had passed through Oxfordshire. Karen Rowe had organised an Olympic Breakfast event to celebrate its journey through Abingdon and had been loaded a genuine torch for the occasion. We were delighted that Karen brought the torch with her to the summer meeting.
