New Alresford WI meets at St Gregory’s Pastoral Centre, Grange Road, Alresford SO24 9HE on the first Wednesday of each month, at 7.30pm.
At most monthly meetings we welcome Speakers, with many varied adventures and useful information to delight and entertain us! Members have recently been enthralled by magical illusions and a talk about the Magic Circle, celebrated Christmas with songs from a local Ukulele Group, followed the wildlife and changing seasons in the New Forest and learnt more about the “Suffering Suffragettes”, to name but a few.
With a Raffle, Flower of the Month Competition and Sales Table to keep all the Members busy, there is never a dull moment.
Members enjoy monthly Knit & Natter get-togethers, playing Scrabble/Rummikub and Coffee meet-ups at local venues. Craft Workshops held regularly, are also very popular. Meeting up for a fish and chip lunch in Alton is a new addition. New Alresford WI also join in with teams for the Group Darts, Skittles and Quiz tournaments held every year. Our Outings Committee keep us busy with frequent day trips, also enjoying a coach trip in the summer going further afield.. Our summer evening BBQ, whatever the weather, is an event we always look forward to.
If you are new to the area or keen to try something new, as with all WI Groups, you will be assured of a warm welcome. We would be delighted to meet you as a Visitor – come and join in three times for a taster before you join!
