Hampton WI Hat Competition entries Bring your hat to the meeting tomorrow, Tuesday 12th September to be judged! Good luck to everybody!


You will all remember that at the Summer Soiree Gerri from Midhatdlesex Federation reminded us that we were all eligible to enter the Spelthorne Group Hat making competition. Entries need to be brought with you tomorrow night. Each WI may enter three hats so in the event of there being more than three entries we will have a vote. I look forward to seeing your creations.

The hats must be home made and not shop brought hats which are then decorated.

The hats can be made from any media, such as embroidered, felt, knitted, painted, paper etc


Papercraft – Talk – Demo – Make with Suryia Goodlett, NFWI Paper Crafter on Tuesday 12th September

Welcome back after our summer break. On Tuesday our speaker is our very own paper crafting expert, Suryia Goodlett. Suryia has been recognised as a National Federation craft tutor for a number of years now and we are thrilled she is demoing her latest creative ideas on her home turf. There’s a ‘make’ to take home too.

We have a few tickets left for the Spelthorne Group meeting on Friday 22nd and I will be selling them on Tuesday night. Cost is £4.00.

Looking forward to seeing you all.



Date for your diary: Spelthorne Group Annual Meeting Hosted by Sunbury WI 22nd September 2017

Hello, I hope yocofu are all enjoying your summer. September is creeping up on us and Hampton WI will soon be back in full swing with meetings and events.

I have 10 tickets for the annual gathering of WIs in the Spelthorne Group. Each year a different WI act as hosts, our hosts for 2017 are Sunbury WI. The venue is Ashford Community Centre and tickets are £4. See the photo for details of the evening’s entertainment and the other WIs involved. Please contact me if you would like me to reserve you a ticket, you can pay me at our first meeting in September.

A key feature of this annual event is the competition. This year’s theme is ‘Homemade Hats’ – I will send out a separate blog post about this – watch this space!
