We are now a large group with over 100 members, but our ladies are still very friendly & we meet on the 4th Tuesday of each month in the 2000 Centre, Hedge End at 7.30 pm. Doors open at 6.45 pm. Activities held each month include groups for craft, beading and walking and discussion groups. We are always open to suggestions for yet more activities if they are viable!! Our social activities include coach trips throughout the year, These are always exciting and offer education, culture and fun. Also, during the year we try to fit in a Skittles Evening. Once a year, we have an Make and Take day, making crafty items, taught by our own members. We also have a Free Educational Day each year where we have talks and demonstrations on a particular theme. We always enjoy having a Spring/Summer Buffet and Christmas Meal each year which are always well attended. Our Community Projects involve our ladies knitting jumpers for Zimbabwe. Members very kindly hold Coffee Mornings/Tea Afternoons to raise the money so that we are able to send the jumpers to Zimbabwe. Members knit blankets and hats for the Maternity Services at Southampton and Winchester Hospitals. Supplies of small packages of stationery are sent to Swaziland for distribution by the local WI there to outlying schools. We collect voluntary donations of toiletries and nappies for the Basics Bank. Members donate animal foods for the local Blue Cross.
