Welcome to the Wallops WI website
The August meeting was our annual garden party which this year was held in our President’s garden in Over Wallop. Here are a few of the photos of the afternoon. Some of our husbands were lending a hand to measure and judge our potato competition. Our winner this year was Sarah Day, for a second time, with a weight of 4lb 11oz. The booby prize was awarded to Liz Staddon-Smith with 15 1/2 oz.
In January our WI voted to change to meeting in the large hall of the Wallops parish hall. This necessitates moving our meeting night from the second Wednesday of the month to the second THURSDAY of the month. This will take effect from our JUNE 2017 meeting.
We have now finalised our programme for the following year and this is detailed below.
The Wallops WI covers the three villages of Over, Nether and Middle Wallop and outlying communities.
There has been a WI in the Wallops since 1919, in either one or both of the villages. We are looking forward to celebrating our 100th anniversary in 2019.
Our monthly meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month at 7.30pm prompt in The Wallops Parish Hall, Middle Wallop.(on the A343)
We always welcome new members and visitors to our meetings. Why not take a look at our programme and if there is a topic which interests you then come along as a visitor. We would love to meet you.
In addition to our monthly programme, we arrange outings and host our annual garden party in August each year. We have a darts team which has been playing for two years and meets most Wednesday lunchtimes for practice at The White Hart pub in Over Wallop.
At present, we have 32 members of varying ages and interests.
