Our W.I. meets in the Parish Hall at 7.30pm on the second Thursday of the month. Why not come along and see what is on offer? Visitors are always welcome.

The 2020 programme began when Chris and Judy Leeming were the guest speakers. Their truly inspirational talk, accompanied by slides, described their challenge to walk 1000 miles in a year. The challenge, however became an obsession and they put on their boots every day, averaged over 200 miles a month and accomplished 2000 miles before the end of the year. An incredible achievement.

We are looking forward to our post- Christmas lunch at The Traddock.

Next year’s programme promises to be varied and interesting.
