Kings Bromley WI

The WI do not hold a members meeting during August; however that’s not say we haven’t been busy. The Village Show did not have the best of summer weather and we sadly lost our pretty pink gazebo in the high wind, yet we still made a grand sum of just over £440. This will fund our outings and events throughout next year. The stall had a variety of cakes, jams and splendid raffle prizes and the stall itself looked spectacular in the traditional bright pink and mauve. The prizes and baked cakes were all donated by WI members and gratefully received. All the raffle prizes have now been collected.

The now traditional cream tea at the Royal Oak was splendid and 15 ladies enjoyed the afternoon with a lovely array of cakes, scones and sandwiches. This year we themed the event in recognition of the suffragettes and celebrated 100 years since women received the vote. Many ladies wore sashes and rosettes in honour of the suffragettes.

The ladies continue to run a craft and social group at the Royal Oak on the 3rd Thursday of the month from approximately 2pm and this is open to all who might like to join in. There is no fee but please bring your own projects and money for refreshments. The next members’ meeting will be at the village hall on 6th September from 7.30pm and if ladies haven’t already paid for the “The Girls ” in November, £20 for the ticket and coach is now due.

A Happy Summer holidays from all the WI.
