Lemon Cake

Thank you to all our lovely bakers for some scrummy cakes this year. We need one more volunteer before our Summer break-please sign up if you could make our cake in June. Oh- but if you’d like to be one of our star bakers after the summer-don’t let me put you off! Form in Info Folder.

Carnival  June 10th
How about starting to think about baking or jam making for Carnival on June 10th? Or making bunting? Not long now! Please sign up for that too; we need more people for everything! Go on-it’s fun I promise! As a WI we are supposed to engage with the local community-lets help make this new Carnival a huge success.

Classic Cars on the Green is on Sunday July 11th & we will be having a stall, as we did last year-second hand books CDs & DVDs and even old Tape Cassettes as they are popular with the classic owners as their cars don’t have CDs. So please have a rummage at home & see if you have any you would like to be rid of. We would also be pleased if a few people could help on the day.

Car Boot Sale
Of course if you have anything else you’d like to get rid of, within reason!- don’t forget we hope to have a Car Boot Sale later in the summer. If you have any items for that please watch for further information.

We need to check we have all our members’ details down correctly on our register. You will see forms on Tuesday –please fill one in.

Come and join us this Tuesday.  Carol’s talk is interesting and extremely humorous, Don’t miss out. Visitors welcome £2 entrance inc tea or coffee.

 

 

 

Hampton Carnival – Saturday 10th June – We still need many more volunteers

mhmlwThis year’s Carnival is going to be a much grander affair than it has been in recent years and will incorporate the Hampton Music festival.  The Hampton WIs have been asked to host a picnic area, in the square outside Sainsburys. We will be providing tea, coffee and cakes and also our usual separate cake selling stall.  So it will need a lot of commitment from members both on the day for selling and decorating the area and in baking and making more bunting!, but we know we can rely on you.  This will be a combined effort with the newly formed Friday afternoon group, the Tudor Roses.

All aboard – The friendly railway

On Tuesday we welcome  Hampton and Kempton Waterworks Railway. they will be telling us about the history and future of this local little railway.  Later in the year we hope to arrange a visit to see it for ourselves.
