Newmill and Teviothead WRI’s October meeting was the well-attended AGM.
Speaker was Debbie Lyons, an independent consultant for Neal’s Yard Remedies, which has been established for 25 years. During a demonstration, which included a mini facial using Neal’s Yard products, she mentioned that the products were all produced and packaged in an ecologically-friendly way. After a “guess -the-fragrance” contest, Debbie gave members samples of skincare products.
