December was all about Christmas for East Markham WI members with three events for them to enjoy – a Christmas lunch at the Queens Hotel in East Markham, the popular Christmas Wreath making in the Village Hall and the WI’s first Christmas party for two years. The raffle for the party evening was to raise funds for the Retford Branch of Bassetlaw Food Bank and the group was able to donate £145 to the Food Bank.
In January, member Louise Kendall spoke on ‘Heart Health’. On 21st February the group welcomes James Pogson of the Northern Tea Company to speak about Fair Trade Tea.
In March, they will celebrate their 74th birthday with a special dinner.
