Our 84th Birthday Meeting was held on March 12th 2020 in Steventon Village Hall. The hall was packed with local members and guests, as well as invited guests from Church Crookham WI (with whom we are twinned), Oakley and Deane WI, our WI Advisors and the Chairman of the Hampshire Federation of WIs.
We started with a very short business meeting when we heard that our resident photographer, Christine, has been successful in having her photo accepted for the Hampshire WI 2021 calendar. Over the years Christine has entered 14 photos with 11 being accepted for the calendar – Congratulations Christine!
We then kicked off the social part of the evening with a rousing rendition of Jerusalem. Our entertainment for the evening was local trio, Musicality, who performed many songs from musicals - we were invited to sing-a-long to a few as well. Looking around the audience there were many smiling faces – we all thoroughly enjoyed it!
We then tucked into a delicious supper provided by several of our members and served by the committee. We are renowned for our delicious food and this year was no exception – thank you to everyone for such a lovely spread. The final event of the evening was the cutting of our birthday cake – thank you to Helen for baking and Debbie for icing – it was delicious!
North Waltham WI is following the guidance from Hampshire Confederation of WIs and we are cancelling our meetings in April and May at least. We will review the situation in June and will communicate decisions to our members. However, we are all still here for each other so if anyone needs anything or just a chat please do get in touch
