Mayflower WI

by | 10 January 2018 | WI

Mayflower WI was formed in 2017 and membership has risen to nearly 30 members. A varied and entertaining programme of speakers and demonstrations has been enjoyed. New friendships have been formed and old acquaintances renewed. There really is something for everyone.

The group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 7.00pm at The Hub, 11 Churchgate, Retford. You can come for a couple of meeting at a cost of £5.00 each, before you make up your mind about becoming a member. Contact Louise on 07880 948941 for more details.

In October, members and guests had a very informative talk by Dominic Schad from Muddy Fork. Muddy Fork run therapeutic gardening and conservation projects based at Idle Valley Nature Reserve and at Babworth. They also grow willow used for fencing and baskets. Members attempted to make lengths of willow into star shapes with varying degrees of success and much laughter.

On Wednesday 13th December, they held a ‘Nosh and Natter’ Christmas meeting, with a ‘bring and share’ meal to enjoy, card crafts to make and a Secret Santa.
