Chineham WI meet on the fourth Monday of each month (unless advised) at 7.30 in Christ Church, Reading Road, Chineham, Hampshire, RG24 8XQ
We are part of the Loddon Group of WIs and attend various events with other WIs in the Group.
We enjoy a varied programme of events each month,and also have a thriving Lunch Club and a Scrabble Evening for our members. . During the spring/summer we have a Garden Club who meet to discuss their interests. We also have (in its infancy) a Theatre Group.
At our monthly meetings we run a fun based competition, a raffle and book stall as well as the speaker or special evening event.
Our speakers, who stood in for the original organised guests, were The Street Pastors who “patrol” the town centre of Basingstoke on a Friday and Saturday night and early morning. Helping without judgement revellers from the pubs and clubs. Part of a national team of volunteers, they patrol from 10.00pm until 4.00am to care for, listen to and help people who are out on the streets.
A very dedicated team two of whom shared their stories with us.
The Poppy Competition was well supported with many entries.
Some of us are attending the Haymarket Theatre’s offering of the musical Priscilla Queen of the Desert next week, and our Christmas Craft Fair is coming up on 17th November 2018 at the Chineham Village Hall.
We would love you to join us… for more information please contact Hampshire WI on 02380 616712 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
