Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are great fun, covering a diverse range of topics and activities. We often theme them to tie them in with current WI campaigns. Previous meetings have included:

  • Talks on women’s issues, health & well-being, local history & the local causes and community projects we support
  • Crafts such as making soap, beeswax food wraps, greetings cards, Easter Chick egg cosies & Christmas wreaths
  • Quizzes, Music Bingo and Food & Drink tastings
  • Gardening themes – making posies to combat loneliness and learning how to encourage bees into our gardens

All meetings are held in the function room of the Heathcote & Star pub, unless otherwise stated.
