We still need new members but we are carrying on for at least another year.
In other areas membership is growing as younger people find out that the WI is not about cooking and crafts alone. It is first and foremost about learning about the world around us in a fun and friendly way. The monthly meetings give us speakers on all sorts of subjects plus the chance to socialise. On top of that are the events that are run for all the West Suffolk WIs which can range from scrabble and whist to climbing wall taster sessions, from soup and natter lunches to learning calligraphy or making a patchwork picture. There are opportunities to join a choir, take part in a show, enjoy an outing to London or get involved in a campaign to improve lives.
If you are interested come along to our meetings on the second thursday of the month at 7.30pm at Hepworth Pavilion.
or if you want more information ring me or look online at either the national federation web pages (https://www.thewi.org.uk) or follow that through to the West Suffolk pages.
Please join us. Brenda Last 01359 221307.
