This year we have another really interesting programme of events put together by Marianne. There is very much something for everyone including craft, food, talks and some well deserved pampering. This year in April, June and September we are also testing out some member competitions.
Do make 2017 the year you come along and try us out. You will experience a warm and friendly welcome from a small but perfectly formed WI! If you are thinking of joining the WI and would like to come along as a visitor please either contact Jane on 07798 842487 or just turn up on the night. You can come along twice to get a taster before you join. We make a small charge for refreshments.
We usually meet on the first Thursday of the month (although there are some exceptions – see below) at 8.00pm at Hatch Warren Community Centre, Long Cross Lane, Basingstoke RG22 4XF.
