Shorwell WI celebrating 70 years 1948 – 2018
Shorwell WI meets monthly on the second Monday at 7.30pm in the Parish Hall, Russell Road, Shorwell.
At the March meeting 25 of our members attended and enjoyed hearing about (and sampling) Jim Miller’s fine Rosé wine choices; we were also delighted to see our decorated pottery pieces from the February meeting.
Our website www.shorwellwi.org.uk now includes the first scrapbook, ‘1915-1965 50 years of the WI’. Although Shorwell WI was still in its teens in 1965, the scrapbook is a great insight into the social history of Shorwell village, with information about local groups and events and some familiar faces. The scrapbook can be found by clicking on the ‘Blog’ tab and can be downloaded as a PDF.
As the lighter days become more evident we start to think about the Midsummer Fair and our popular Produce & Preserves stall; marmalade, jam & chutney pans to the ready!
In April we meet on Monday 9th at 7.30pm, when we will hear about Costumes in Theatre with Andrew Wilson-Jenner.
We are a very friendly group and Visitors are most welcome, there is no charge for your first three visits. If you would like more information about what we do please feel free to call Debbie on 741384.
