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.  Meanwhile the Supper Club also travelled to Stockbridge; there was a large group in attendance at The White Hart.  Everyone enjoyed their meals, but those who had selected the pork were particularly enthusiastic about their choice.

This month’s meeting was also a social occasion.  Ostensibly, it was to celebrate the 90th Birthday of the Queen, but really it was an excuse to enjoy chatting, eating a buffet supper supplied by all the members and playing Bingo!  There was a cake with candles and we did sing Happy Birthday, but Her Majesty wouldn’t have heard us, as we believe she was on the Balmoral Estate enjoying a well-earned rest following the various national and private celebrations.   A few members had also brought along some Royal memorabilia.

No meeting this month, but we are visiting Syon House on the 18th August (there is availability if anyone is interested in joining us) and members will be starting their baking for the WI refreshments at the Fete on 3rd September.    We would, however, be delighted to receive further offers of cakes please as there is always a high demand for cakes.  Please contact Sharon King 01264 335630.
