Carnmoney WI welcomes new members

Re-elected president Helen Kerr welcomed members to Carnmoney WI’s latest meeting, held in St Brigid’s Church, Glengormley on Thursday, October 9.

There was a special welcome for the five new members who recently joined the Carnmoney group following the closure of Glengormley WI.

Guest speaker for the evening was Nial Watson from Ringhaddy Daffodils in Co Down.

Nial, from Killinchy, gave a talk about growing daffodils, explaining to members that the business has over 500 varieties of bulbs and how staff are kept busy ploughing, rotovating, planting and fertilising the bulbs to grow into beautiful daffodils which they take to various shows around the world. They get orders for the bulbs from all over the world, with the biggest market is North America.

Nial also brought along some bulbs for the ladies to buy.

The next meeting of Carnmoney WI will take place on Thursday, November 12 at 7.15pm.

Visitors are welcome to attend.
