Summer Soiree Tuesday 11th July

Another WI ‘end of term’ approaches.

On Tuesday we will celebrate summer in our usual style – PIMMS, shortbread, strawberries and an entertainer. Ever wondered how those amazing balloon creatures and flowers are made – without popping the balloon? On Tuesday you will be finding out!

Classics on the Green – This Sunday 2nd July 11:00 till 4:00

We are looking forward to taking part in this year’s Classics on the Green with our usual second hand book stall.

Pleas bring you donations of unwanted books/CDs/DVDs or Music cassettes to the WI stall on Sunday or drop them off in Kit’s BLACK BOX (outside 1 Gresham Road) on Saturday.

Jacqui, Lesley and Kit are manning the stall. If you can drop by and stay long enough to give them a tea break they’d appreciate it!

Thank you

See you for Art Journaling on Tuesday

A big thanks to all those who helped, or baked cakes for us to sell at the Carnival on Saturday.  Additional thanks to the committee members who did all the pre-event preparation.  These things don’t just happen there is lots of shopping, collecting of tables and gazebos to be done.   This was the first time the music festival and the carnival have been run together. We have been asked by the organisers for feedback so they can make improvements for next year,  please let the committee know your thoughts.

Well done to the lucky winners. The best Boot Planter, decided by public vote was won by Bridgette Taylor (Tudor Rose WI) and the winner of the cake decorating competition was Kira Marks. Well done to Kira and Bridgette.

Art Journaling

On Tuesday Kit will be introducing us to art journaling.  Please bring.

  1. an old newspaper or a magazine, this will be thrown away afterwards so anything will do.
  2. an old postcard or two.
  3. old tickets, labels, receipts, wrappers, envelopes or any flat ephemera you come across.

Hobby Swish

Along with art journaling, we will also be holding a hobby swish on Tuesday.  This  is  a chance to bring  some craft or hobby items that you no longer use, or perhaps never used.  For each item donated you will be given a voucher, each voucher will entitle you to take an  item away.   Items for donation could be craft items, cooking equipment, knitting yarns, fabric, books or anything connected to a hobby or craft that  is in good condition and  another member may enjoy.

Classic Cars on the Green. Sunday July 2nd

This increasingly successful event is held on The Green in Station Rd in Hampton Village.  We sell used books, CDs  & DVDs if you have anything to donate or would enjoy helping on the stall please let a member of the committee know. This event takes place before our July meeting.  Donations can be bought to the June meeting, or I expect Kit will have her drop box in front of her garage for donation  They can also be bought to the green on the day.
