Monthly Meetings

In light of the current situation, and following Government guidance, our meetings will not be held at The Heathcote & Star until further notice. Instead, our monthly meetings are now online!
The programme may be subject to change, but we can still guarantee the same amount of fun, friendship and support. Guests are still welcome to join us just contact us in advance for the Zoom Meeting ID. 

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.
