On 2nd August 2012 we hosted the Speakers Selection Day.  Lunch for 60+ and refreshments for 90+.  A very busy day but well worth it!



We are a lively bunch and like to learn different crafts, we also have cookery demonstrations and we really enjoy our Christmas and Birthday lunches! The Christmas Craft Fair raises funds for us to carry on learning and socialising as well as contributing to all the other expenses occurring throughout the year.

We invite other WI members or branches to purchase table space from us to sell their craft items to add variety to what we can offer and to establish ties with members outside our own area.

We also enjoy entering the SOE show with cookery and craft items.  This year member Sheila Buckingham won a first with her Best Man's Speech.  We always manage to win at least one rosette every year so far sometimes 3 or 4.

We spent a day learning how to make a variety of objects and stabbing ourselves with needles, some of us did manage to stab the wool as well!  Fueled by lots of tea, cake and lunch we had a fantastic day.
