Busy time for Townswomen

IT’S been a very busy few weeks for the members of Glengormley Townswomen’s Guild.

May began with the Federation Fashion Show by Lulu Blu at Parliament Buildings, which was attended by National Chairman Pauline Myers.

At the monthly meeting the guest speaker was author Yvonne Lyon who read from her book of inspirational poems for all seasons, which included such diverse subjects as four seasons, music, children’s poems, family and prayer.

Yvonne, who is also an accomplished musician, donates the proceeds from sales of her books to a number of cancer charities and other good causes.

The annual Coleraine Sleepover at Bushtown Hotel was a great success.

On the Friday afternoon members visited the Corrymeela complex at Ballycastle - a community of people of all ages and Christian traditions who individually and together are committed to healing social, religious and political divisions in Northern Ireland and across the world.

The spectacular location and sense of serenity within the centre made it an unforgettable experience.

On Sunday, June 3 several members joined the excited crowd at the O’Neill Road roundabout to watch the hand over of the Olympic Flame and cheer the torchbearers through Newtownabbey.

The Guild’s last meeting before the summer recess will take place on Tuesday, June 19 in Glengormley Presbyterian Church Hall on the Antrim Road. Visitors welcome.
