We meet on the last Thursday of the month at 7.30pm at the Village Hall, Barton Stacey, every month (except August and December, when the meeting is on a different day).
We have an interesting programme of speakers lined up. All Ladies from Barton Stacey and beyond are welcome to try us (and our cake making skills) out before becoming a member. There is no charge to attend as a visitor – we just ask for a donation if you have tea/coffee and cake. You are welcome twice as a visitor – if you want to come a third time you need to join!!
Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer them or simply come along come along and find out more about the WI – what it can do for you, and maybe what you can do for us!
Your WI is what you want it to be. So if you want a local group that does a particular thing – Knitting? Mah-jong? Scrabble? – come and join us and make it happen.
We look forward to seeing you in 2018. We are very friendly and you will receive a warm welcome – don’t wait for us to find you, come along and give us a go!
