Michael Eavis

The September meeting started with a packed house all waiting for Michael Eavis to speak. We were not disappointed, in fact, the activities for after our speaker were abandoned as he was so interesting and the ladies had so many questionns!

Michael is a very interesting and amusing speaker, who will be 80 on October 17th! He not only told us about the festival, but also about his award winning farm and the social housing he has built in Pilton, his home village.

We only had time at the end for a brief introduction to the Innocent Smoothies Big Knit campaign for Help the Aged, but all the details and patterns can be found here on their website. There are also lots of patterns on Ravelry a fabulous knitting website, including Jo's simple garter stitch hat. Our first four hats were donated, so get knitting or crocheting and bring them to the October and November meetings if you would like them posted.

Throughout the meeting there was prosecco and cake to celebrate our birthday!
