Drinkstone WI

Drinkstone WI was formed in November 2014. We meet on the second Thursday of the month, except August, at 7.30pm in Drinkstone Village Hall.

We are not a “Jam and Jerusalem” WI, more like a “Fun and Friendship” group who welcome ladies of all ages who might like to join us.

Our meetings are varied, with speakers a variety of subjects from charities, local and national, to forgotten bees, even the benefits of the Mediterranean diet and olive oil. Sometimes, instead of a speaker, we have practical and other fun evenings. All that along with the chance to catch up with friends and enjoy delicious cakes/ biscuits and tea or coffee. We even have prosecco from time to time.

In addition to our monthly meetings, we have extra activity groups.

Stitch and Craft Group… meeting on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm in the small meeting room of Drinkstone Village Hall. We each pay £1 towards the hire of the room and take it in turn to provide milk and cake/biscuits. (The tea and coffee are from WI)

Book Club …. (though not all participants are members) We meet on one Thursday evening each month to discuss a chosen book and take it in turn to host the meeting. We also have a meal out near Christmas and during the summer.  Members give suggestions of books to read at the last meeting of the year and we agree on twelve for the following year.
