Memories of 2018 at the Women’s Institute

The Women’s Institute ended December 2018 on a happy note with a party at our December meeting, we were entertained by Jaqui Huggins with music, poetry and stories. The evening also included a buffet meal which was most enjoyable. Throughout the year we have enjoyed such a wide variety of meetings, outing, demonstrations, talks and much more. A talk about a Thai orphanage stirred a whole range of emotions as well as talks about the English Civil War. There was a light hearted, fun quiz and also demonstrations from Top Spin Tennis, Farming in the Fens and Cambridge Folk Tales.

Due to the centenary of the Suffragette movement we had a talk about the 100 years of Votes for Women accompanied by a window display at Adam’s Heritage Centre, this was in partnership with the Field Theatre group. We had a wonderful visit to Welney W.I. which included a talk with a female bomb disposal officer. Our visits included the End of the Pier Show at Cromer, The Houses of Parliament and the Mushroom Farm at Little Ouse.

All in all a great year! If you like the sound of these activities, why not come along to one of our meetings which run on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 7:15pm in the Village Hall.
