W.I. Newsletter September 2016

The month started for us, as for so many in the village, with a busy day at Abbotts Ann Fete.  We didn’t stop; from the moment we arrived at 9.30 a.m. to start our set-up until the end of the afternoon, possibly a little earlier than usual due to the inclement weather, when …

W.I. Newsletter August 2016

It never does any harm to have a break from routine, and as much as we enjoy all things WI some of our regular activities have taken a backseat this month, although we have still managed a lunch and a walk.  For a change the lunch group met at the beginning of the month, this …

W.I. Newsletter June 2016

For our meeting this month, we enjoyed a leisurely “cruise” up and down the Basingstoke Canal.  Whilst June 2016 has been unseasonably cool and wet, for us the weather came up trumps as it remained dry with occasional glimpses of sun throughout the afternoon.  We left from Odiham and travelled towards Basingstoke, stopping …

W.I. Newsletter July 2016

We have had a very enjoyable and social time this month.  The walking group had a lovely ramble around Stockbridge Down, the sun was shining and there were plenty of fauna and flora to see, but not necessarily identify.  This was followed by a very pleasant lunch at the Abbotts Mitre in Chilbolton.  …

W.I. Newsletter May 2016

This month’s meeting should have been sponsored by a major supplier of pens, as there were so many sign-up sheets available on which to put our names, it is a wonder any of us had any ink left at the end of the evening. Opportunities included a canal trip, our summer outing, Abba’s …

WI Newsletter April 2016

Our speaker at the W.I. this month Andrew Negus (no relation to Arthur) is obviously passionate about history and in particular the City of Salisbury. A teacher by profession, he had our members and visitors enthralled as, with the aid of slides, he brought to life the early settlement located on Bishopsdown Ridge …

W.I. Newsletter March 2016

Be warned, next time our members receive a handwritten missive from their friends and family they will be using tips on graphology to discover the writer’s true character traits. It’s not just the way we cross and dot the relevant letters, but whether we space out the lines and characters or …

W.I. Newsletter February 2016

Kate Bennett, our President, reported that the feedback on our annual dinner at our January meeting had been very positive and we have already booked the caterers for 2017! The proceeds of our monthly coffee mornings, and donations in lieu of sending Christmas cards, had totalled £128.00 and this has now …

W.I. Newsletter January 2016

Little did we know when we invited local Magician, Michael King, to entertain us at our New Year Dinner that we would be putting our necks on the line, well at least one of our members did. We were all able to sit back and relax as our delicious three-course dinner …

W.I. Newsletter December 2015

December is such a busy month, so much to be done and all by the 25th, but several of our members still managed to fit in a visit to the cinema to see Lady in the Van, which I believe they enjoyed, and the reading group met to discuss their latest …
