Wednesday 6th March 2019

Our speaker this month was Yvonne Mathews who gave us a talk entitled ‘7 Secrets to Health from the Beehive’

Yvonne gave a very informative and fascinating talk, in a humorous and entertaining style, on keeping bees. Yvonne has been bee keeping for over ten years and has 13 hives in North Wales. She described how she had harvested their honey and other products including pollen, beeswax, nectar and propolis. Yvonne has a background in complimentary medicine and extolled the health benefits of the products from bees. She explained that there were over 300 types of bees but her focus is on keeping honey bees. Yvonne now has a stall at Glastonbury Festival. Members were able to purchase some of her natural products.

Members had really enjoyed the ‘Food to Fork’ morning at Tatton Park organised by the group and are looking forward to a visit to Manchester Airport later this month.

Anyone who is interested in visiting  joining us is welcome to attend our next meeting  to be held on Wednesday 3rd April at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when  Brian Greene will give a talk entitled  ‘The Brill Building. Sound we grew up to’.

Commemorating 750 years of St Oswald’s Church

March 25th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Events | News - (Comments Off on Commemorating 750 years of St Oswald’s Church)

In July, Lower Peover is celebrating 750 years since St Oswald’s church was founded with a four day ‘Celebration with Flowers’.

Throughout the festival, the church will be decorated by Knutsford Floral Design Club, who will be creating magnificent flower arrangements depicting significant dates in the history of the church.

On Friday, 5th July 2019 at 7.30pm, a concert will be held inside St Oswald’s Church. Entertainment will be provided by soprano, Linda Richardson. Linda was born in Cheshire and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music. She completed her studies at the National Opera Studio. Warrington Male Voice Choir, one of England’s oldest choirs, will be singing a selection of songs at the concert.

Fifty years ago, when Lower Peover celebrated 700 years since St Oswald’s Church was founded, a 7th centenary pageant about the history of the church and the village, known as the Peover Saga, was held in the grounds. Many local people will still remember watching and being involved with the pageant. A film of the Peover Saga will be projected on screen during the events.

On Saturday 6th July, St Oswald’s Church will be holding the annual church fete at 12pm.

On the morning of Sunday 7th  July there will be a special service at St Oswald’s Church, where there will be a notable speaker.

Fundraising events for a ‘Celebration with Flowers’ are also taking place in advance of the main events:-

– A pudding and quiz evening on the 28th March 2019, 7.30pm at Plumley Village Hall.

– A walk between St Oswald’s Church, Lower Peover and St Lawrence’s Church, Over Peover, and back again, on the morning of the 11th May 2019, followed by refreshments. The walk will commence at St Oswald’s Church. Further details will be made available in the near future.

Lower Peover WI – February 2019

March 1st, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News | WI News - (Comments Off on Lower Peover WI – February 2019)

This month, we were given a very informative talk by Nicholas Hatton about the Butterflies of Cheshire.  Nicholas explained that some butterfly species had declined in recent years whilst others maintained their numbers. His talk was accompanied by some beautiful slides mostly of photographs taken by himself, some of which had won photographic competitions. It was sad to hear that Cheshire has become one of the least butterfly rich counties in England, his theory being the loss of deep hedgerows and wild flower meadows. He also told us how to tell the difference between a butterfly and a moth. Not as simple as we thought: it’s not just a case of day or night time flight, or position of wings, it’s the fact that butterflies have a little ball shape at the end of their antennae and moths don’t!

On Thursday 28th February, following an invitation to the local WI, some of our members will be visiting Tatton Park to take part in a pilot ‘FOOD to FORK’ trial. We are looking forward to their report back at out next meeting.

Anyone who is interested in visiting /joining us is welcome to attend our next meeting  to be held on Wednesday 6th March at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when  Yvonne Matthews  will give a talk entitled  ‘7 secrets to health from the Beehive’
