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.
The first meeting of the year was given by Ann Sevier, “A Year in the Life of a New Forest Pony”. A very funny speaker who is herself a Forester, the owner of ponies and cattle grazing in the Forest. She entertained us with many humorous anecdotes and lovely photos too. The loss of animals in road accidents was one of the more serious topics. Whilst tales of the annual round up of the ponies was hilarious. The competition of Equine Photograph went to Jan Thomas with the Cup for the highest number of competition wins in 2017 going to Gill Dixon.
