Join the Swallowtail WI for a night of dancing, music and laughter as we throw our debut Ceilidh.
Take your partners by the hand on Saturday 14th October at the Sprowston Sports & Social Club as the acclaimed folk band Fezziwig strike all the right notes. We’re so excited to have Fezziwig playing on this special fundraising night, as they’ve got a stellar reputation in East Anglia and guarantee to get you on your feet. Don’t be shy if you’ve never danced a Ceilidh before - learning from scratch is great fun. We’ll be guided by professionals, and if you really do prefer to sit on the side lines, there’s plenty of musical entertainment to enjoy.
The evening promises to be lots of fun, and you’ll be able to enjoy alcoholic and soft drinks at bargain prices, as well as nibbling on bar snacks. We’ll be providing some light snacks on the evening, so make sure you have a meal beforehand so you’re ready to dance the night away.
Our Ceilidh is open to everyone, not just Swallowtail WI members, so be sure to tell your family and friends that it’s going to be a night to remember. Better still, this fantastic evening will cost you just £7.50 per person.
To book your tickets, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the payment details.
It’s not every day that you get to see a crystal healer at work, so the Swallowtails were delighted to get a live demonstration from practitioner Sadie Huxford.
Sadie is one of our members, and we’ve been excited to see her in work mode ever since she agreed to lead our July meeting. Fortunately for us, the lovely Roisin was happy to step in and be Sadie’s guinea pig for the evening, as she gave us an insight into how crystal healing works.
During her talk, Sadie showed us the various crystals she uses and explained why they have such powerful energy and healing properties. As she worked on Roisin, she explained about the seven chakras and how she works to heal any blocks or gaps in the body’s energy field by using specific crystals. Throughout the treatment, Roisin was calm and relaxed, and we were worried she might have nodded off thanks to Sadie’s soothing voice.
Once the demonstration was over, many Swallowtails went over to speak to Sadie with questions about crystal healing. As someone who is incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about their work, it was wonderful to get an insight into an alternative therapy that few of us had tried.
Following Sadie’s talk, there was some Swallowtail WI business to attend to, not least a vote on whether the programme the committee had devised for 2018. With activities and talks on subjects including vegan cookery, bee keeping, conflict resolution and vintage fashion, we tried to ensure it was a diverse mix. Happily, the vote was unanimous and the next year of Swallowtail meetings look set to be interesting and informative. Now we just have the rest of 2017 to enjoy!
