W.I. Activities

The May meeting of the W.I. saw 33 members being welcomed by President Kirsten Cannon with a special welcome for new member, Carole. She, like all prospective new members, had come along to a previous meeting (3 in all) before opting to join us. If you are curious, why not join us next month ? June 15th from 7.30pm – that’s when the meeting starts but a warm welcome awaits you any time after 7pm.
We heard plans for our Summer Outing in July – Stott Park Bobbin Mill with a meal on the way back. The walking group was going to do a gentle walk in Orton and their usual local walk every Thursday. The theatre group are organizing a trip to Keswick Theatre by The Lake in October  and there is the County Show at the end of summer.
The main business of the evening was to discuss and vote on two resolutions which will be taken to the National Conference. The more serious matter over we played a Getting to Know You game – great fun !  Then refreshments provided by the committee whilst we laughed over the things we’d discovered about our fellow members in the game. Now we know whose car broke down in the middle of Park Lane in Central London and who completed the Inca Trail ! The competition for a Decorated Spoon was won by Kirsten with Joan Airey second. The raffle being won by Elaine, who has only recently joined the W.I. Maybe you’ll come through the village hall door and find out more ……..
