Members enjoyed a fabulous trip to Springfields. The sun shone brightly and members roamed the gardens; took part in some retail therapy; and rested with tea and scones. Thank you to the County Federation for organising a trip that hit the spot!

21.10 Mosaics Group picAt the beginning of October 2021 Anna Conti came to WI House to lead our Mosaics Workshop. This was really fun, and everyone who attended went away chuffed to bits with their mosaic mirror.  It is a shame more members didn’t sign up for this workshop as we had to almost cancel it.

I would be interested to know what sort of workshops members would like the Arts Sport and Leisure Sub Committee to arrange, and it would be wonderful if some of you would consider joining our merry band.

In the making
