We are a small but very friendly group, whose membership ranges from women in their early 20s to the more mature! We meet on the 4th Monday of every month at 7.30pm at The Good Shepherd Community Hall, Roewood Road, Holbury, SO45 2JN.
Although our regular meetings form the core of our WI, we also:
- have a Craft Group, Film Group, Swimming Club and a Lunch Group (with Langley WI);
- arrange various excursions including a trip to the Houses of Parliament, a shopping trip to Bath along with a visit to the American Museum, journey on the Kennet and Avon Canal and a visit to Jane Austen’s house at Chawton;
- compete at the New Forest Show; and
- like to take part in the various competitions and events organised by Hampshire Federation and the Beaulieu Group (to which we belong) such as Darts, Skittles (2016 runners up) and Quizzes as well as the Spring and Autumn meetings.
