Tuesday 7 August 2018
For our August meeting, we walked across the fields to Piddington and what a brilliant evening it turned out to be! Liz and Roy Friendship-Taylor took us round the site of the Roman Villa at Piddington, where they've been excavating for 40 years, and then round the Museum to see the amazing 'finds' from the Dig. We loved it so much that we're hoping that they'll come and talk to us about what they've found in the area around Quinton - watch this space.
In the meantime, why not visit the Museum - it's open Sunday afternoons in August - and there is an event on 19 August. Liz and Roy - thank you for such an interesting and informative evening.

Theatre Trip "The Girls"
Members enjoyed a very special trip in July to the Phoenix Theatre London
to see the musical "The Girls".
We all cried and laughed in equal measure at the wonderful story (based on Calendar girls). The trip was made in memory of Mrs Constance Travis as she was an actress in her younger life. She was also a keen supporter of Quinton WI.

May Day 2015
WI members Julia, Suzanne and Barbara manned the Tea Tent with help from Emma. A traditional village event much enjoyed by all. Here is Julia setting up and is that Kate in the background setting up the PA?
A lovely April day out at Barnsdale Gardens with equally lovely ladies!
Barbara is also a dual member of Wootton WI and joined them at Althorp for a private tour of the house followed by Christmas themed Afternoon Tea.
The Centenary Baton made a flying visit to Quinton
Members of Quinton, Wootton, Grange Park and Roade WIs congregated in Quinton in October to greet the Centenary Baton which was visiting the local areas of each Trustee. Afterwards tea and cake were enjoyed at Barbara's home in Quinton.
Supporting our local "High Street Shops"
In Quinton or Courteenhall, we do not have a High Street, but we do have Peter Clarke and his Mobile Shop. Photo shows our President, Val, at the Butchery Counter.

We were delighted to be invited to man the refreshments tent.
We erected a plaque by an Oak Tree on the Green which was donated by Sainsbury's at a national AGM and was planted by Sheila Randall in November 1999.
Ladies in the kitchen!
Competition for 3 cup cakes. Don't they look delicious - and they tasted as good as they looked!
