LIME & Cheshire Show Committee

L.I.M.E. Report to Region Meeting February 2019

The LIME Committee has not met since the last report to Region, therefore I have no items to report to you. However, I would like to take the opportunity of thanking Jenny Wilson, who has stepped down as chair of LIME on taking over her role as President Elect of Region. Jenny made an excellent job of chairing the Committee for a number of years and I just hope that I will do as well. I am pleased to say that Jenny will remain as a member on the committee .

May I take this opportunity also of thanking Hilary Williams who has stepped down from the committee and welcome Eirwen Kenrick.

Last year we had a sales table in the marquee on the Eisteddfod field where we sold pre loved handbags, scarves and jewellery. These are loved by our visitors.  We hope to do the same this year and will be asking for any donations as the eisteddfod gets nearer.

Lastly, as someone who is very proud of being Welsh and all things to do with Wales it is an opportunity for me to say that Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is not actually a Welsh eisteddfod. It was set up as an International Musical Eisteddfod which happens to take place in Wales. As many of you know it was set up at the end of WW2 to promote peace in the World and invite countries who had fought to meet and make friends. . We already have a Welsh National Eisteddfod which takes place annually, alternating in North and South Wales.

We are proud to host this International Festival in our Region.

Many thanks

Susan Jones

Chair of LIME committee.
