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.
Tony Cross, gave us a very interesting talk on the “Romance of the Letterbox”. We had no idea how many styles of letter boxes there have been over the ages and how pretty some were too. Tony was a very good speaker and we all enjoyed it very much.
On Saturday 18 November our Craft Fair was a great with our members bringing in a good variety of delicious bakes and lots of help too. We enjoyed looking at the various craft stalls and many Christmas presents were found. Thanks to you bakers and helpers.
Our group Christmas lunch, arranged by Jenny, was held at the Apollo Hotel in Basingstoke and a most enjoyable time it was with great food and company and lots of laughs too.
Our Christmas party is on Monday with Secret Santa to boot. Mike Brook is reading “A Christmas Miscellany” to get us in the festive spirit and the competition is ‘A Christmas Treat’
