Wealden Trefoil Guild Wealden Trefoil Guild met on April 1st in St Mary’s room and welcomed 2 new members, Janet Ashman and Sarah Moore, and Mrs Jane Goldsmith MAR speaker to give a talk on and demonstration of Reflexology. Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflex points in the hands and feet which relate to every organ in the body. It is used to rebalance the body as complementary therapy and originated 4000 BC. Jane gave us a brief history and then gave us a basic demonstration on the feet of 2 members. The Guild had had various invitations to visit other Guilds Outings and Guiding Events which included a trip to New Zealand in 2015 and these were discussed and names taken of those interested in attending. The Guild had been set a challenge by our Chairman Ruth Isaacs to knit some squares for blankets or shawls for the Queen Mary’s Clothing Guild and a few members brought some they had knitted to the meeting in lovely bright colours. 1 member had also knitted 3 children’s jumpers for the same organisation. The Guild was also asked for volunteers to help at a big Brownie Birthday event at Brinsbury College June 21 st. The next meeting will be a visit to the Theatre on May 10th, at The Capitol, Horsham for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ .
