Next Meeting

Our next meeting is on Thursday 12 July: Treasure hunt!

***Please note our change of venue for the meeting start!***
This month we are meeting at The Bandstand in Roberts Park – arrive at 7:30 p.m prompt, so we can get ourselves into teams.
We will then undertake an exciting treasure hunt around our lovely village. The hunt will take around an hour and will finish at our usual meeting place of St Peter’s Church, where there will be some lovely refreshments ready and waiting for us!
If the weather is looking iffy on the day keep an eye on Facebook, twitter and email and we will confirm if we need to switch to the back up plan…
There is no charge for members and guests are very welcome (£3 payable per guest).

What will happen at the meeting?

The meeting starts at 7:30 prompt at the bandstand in Roberts park. If you are new we will be easy to spot! Come and say hi and we will organise ourselves into small teams. We’ll then undertake a treasure hunt around the village – all walking is on pavements and the only hill is the one up from the park to the Church hall.

The treasure hunt should take around an hour to complete and will finish at the church hall on Moorhead Lane, where refreshments will be served. If you are unable to join us for the treasure hunt, feel free to go straight to the hall at any time from 8:15 onwards and join us for a glass of something cold and fizzy.

We always have a quick business meeting, led by Fiz, our president – mainly information about upcoming events so it can be useful to have your diary to hand.

The meeting will finish at about 9 p.m.

I’m not a member – can I come?

Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.

Our usual guest fee is £3. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you and say hello!

What should I bring with me?

Wear shoes suitable for walking through the village. Hopefully the beautiful weather will continue, so you may wish to carry a bottle of water. If the weather takes a turn for the worse you may need a coat.

It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events.
