Chineham WI meet on the fourth Monday of each month (unless advised) at 7.30pm in Christ Church, Reading Road, Chineham, Hampshire, RG24 8XQ and our meeting on 26th July was our first face to face meeting since March 2020.
Not to be beaten during lockdown, we held our monthly meetings not to mention our committee meetings on Zoom, with speakers such as Chris Burroughs introducing us to things we didn’t know about the Vyne House NT house and Tracy Sinclair who talked about organ donation. We held two outdoor events, a socially distanced picnic in Eastrop Park and another in Longbridge Mill’s garden which they opened for free. We had Coffee and Cocktail Zoom meets too. It was certainly good to chat to everyone
At our ’normal’ monthly meetings we run a fun based competition, a raffle and book stall as well as the speaker or special evening event. We enjoy a varied programme of events each month, and also have both a thriving Lunch Club and a Scrabble Evening for our members, which we hope to start up very soon.
Events coming up include a visit, with afternoon tea, to Whitchurch Silk Mill for our annual outing at the end of August and our 12th Birthday Party in September.
We would love you to join us… for more information please contact Hampshire WI on 02380 616712 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
