WI Meetings

Our monthly meetings follow a tried and tested formula, well we are the WI!  We start with the monthly business which includes details of upcoming events organised by our own group and through the county federation.  Every month we have either an engaging speaker or demonstration, a competition and plenty of time to chat and catch up with friends over refreshments.

The monthly competition is judged by our guest speaker and everyone who enters gains points towards winning the Cunningham Cup which is presented at our birthday dinner in March.

We do not have a meeting in August, opting instead for an outing.  In previous years we have spent very enjoyable days at local attractions such as Chatsworth House and last year visited Goathland and Whitby for a fish supper before heading home. This year our group is planning a trip to Wollaton Hall & Park, followed by a river cruise and dinner.

Our December meeting differs from the rest of the year in that we hold a Faith Supper with food and refreshments supplied by members.  We also have an annual Carol Service along with the other four local groups that form the River Group.
