In February Moira Hammond our WI representative for Associated Country Women of the World spoke to us about the work that they do for the disadvantaged. We as a WI collect pennies for friendship and she explained where our money is used to help others.
Our March meeting is a trip to the National WI Craft Fair at Alexandra Palace on Wednesday 29th March. We are going by coach from Gislingham and at the moment we have 7 places free.
Should anyone who is not a member of the WI but would like to join us the tickets are £33 for the day including entrance fee. This should be an interesting day with +300 stalls to browse.
We are especially interested in younger people joining us, firstly to keep us young and secondly, we need new, vibrant ideas to keep pace with the modern world. So, do think about it. Just come and give us a try.
Aileen Kilbee, President, Gislingham WI
