Worksop Wonders WI

by | 11 May 2022 | Social Group, WI, Worksop

The ladies at Worksop Wonders WI are finding that 2022 is proving to be a dynamic year for the group.
After disappointingly having to cancel the group’s 10th birthday party in January due to Covid, spring has brought a full program of speakers, events and trips planned for the coming year.

The new meeting venue of Thievesdale Community Centre in Worksop is proving very popular. Here the recent AGM was completed smoothly and quickly, before an ‘Education on Tea Etiquette’ presented in a very fun way by the Baroness of Bolsover. Here’s one tip – make sure not to stick out your little finger when sipping your tea!

Members brought their hats and fascinators, which together with the best china and lace table cloths set the scene for the event.

In March, the newly formed book club began meeting monthly, which was a great success. Meanwhile, the monthly craft club continues to be popular with both skilled and novice crafters and the walking group has a few outings planned and walking shoes ready to go.

Membership to Worksop Wonders has rapidly increased since they resumed face-to-face meetings last September. At present the group is still inviting new prospective members to attend two meetings free of charge before committing to become full members for the cost of £44.00 per year.

This annual payment includes the cost of 11 monthly meetings plus other Worksop Wonders organised events. It also provides access to the Nottinghamshire WI Federation and the National Women Institute, with all they have to offer. Also included are eight copies of WI Life magazine, which will be delivered in the post to your door.

Worksop Wonder’s next meeting will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday 11th May at Thievesdale Community Centre in Worksop. The guest speaker will be Charlotte Eccleston, who will be demonstrating some chair-based exercises for all abilities.
