Worksop Wonders WI

by | 6 June 2022 | Social Group, WI, Worksop

It’s been a mixture of cakes, fish and chips and Union Jack bunting for Worksop Wonders WI during the last few weeks whilst celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee.

A great evening of celebration was held at Manton Social Club with the Ryton and Sherwood WI Group, hosted by Worksop Wonders WI.

The event was themed ‘Songs Through the Decades’. The talented Annie Fotheringham sang songs from each decade of the Queen’s reign as members tucked into a fish and chip supper. With the Union Jack bunting and flag waving, what could be more British!

Worksop Wonders WI’s newly formed book club is a great success, offering book club meetings and trips to literature related events.The monthly craft club continues to be popular with both skilled and novice crafters. 
The walking group will be putting on their walking shoes in July and going on a canal-based walk which relates to their 13th July guest speaker, Michael Ogden from the Inland Waterways.

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 Wonders’ next meeting will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday 8th June at Thievesdale Community Centre in Worksop. The guest speaker will be Kathy Powis, who will be giving a talk on Henry VIII’s flagship The Mary Rose.
