CHAL­FONT COMMON WI

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GETTINGTOGETHER -

Our spoof take off of the pan­tomime Sleep­ing Beauty was a great suc­cess watched by an au­di­ence of around 60 ladies in­clud­ing guests from lo­cal WIs. It was hi­lar­i­ous.

Many thanks to all those who worked so hard in the run up to the pro­duc­tion.

It was as usual a very lively meet­ing with mem­bers en­joy­ing a glass of wine and mince pies, fol­lowed by a Christ­mas raf­fle. We had a de­li­cious Christ­mas lunch at a lo­cal ho­tel.

The Sun­day club had an en­joy­able af­ter­noon mak­ing Christ­mas cards un­der the tu­ition of lo­cal artist and mem­ber Mau­reen Marsh.

The walk­ing group left Chal­font and headed off to Jor­dans where they en­joyed cof­fee on the green be­fore ram­bling back home. The group con­tin­ues to thrive with many ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing the­atre, cin­ema and shop­ping trips, the reg­u­lar monthly cof­fee morn­ings in the Grey­hound and ta­ble ten­nis ev­ery week to keep us all ac­tive. With sev­eral new mem­bers on the com­mit­tee we look for­ward to even more di­verse ac­tiv­i­ties – wel­come Anita, Heather and Anthea and grate­ful thanks to the re­tir­ing mem­bers’ for all their hard work.

Our an­nual at­tic sale is booked for the morn­ing of March 14 in the com­mu­nity cen­tre. Any­one wish­ing to book a ta­ble to sell their own ‘stuff’ in the main hall should con­tact Chris Cote­man on 01494 872133 or email chriscote­man@gmail.com. All en­quiries very wel­come. Don’t leave it too late as last year we had a wait­ing list for ta­bles. We will be hav­ing our usual cake and book stalls to­gether with bric-a-brac and of course we will be serv­ing cof­fee and de­li­cious home made cakes all morn­ing.

Ours is such a busy lively group and we are al­ways pleased to see new faces, so come along and have a chat or con­tact us on 01494 872133.

Our meet­ings are on the first Thurs­day of the month in the Tony Gra­ham Room at the com­mu­nity cen­tre 7.30 for 7.45.

The Fes­tive lunch ta­ble was a sight to be­hold. Ev­ery­one had brought sal­ads, hams, quiches and a va­ri­ety of de­li­cious pud­dings. The Christ­mas af­ter­noon got off to a good start with piled plates. Many thanks to ev­ery­one for their con­tri­bu­tions.

We then set­tled down for the af­ter­noon. The pres­i­dent wel­comed ev­ery­one. The two Caroles re­ceived their birth­day gifts.

The Pres­i­dent and Sec­re­tary had been to Den­ham Green WIs last meet­ing. A very en­joy­able af­ter­noon but a very sad oc­ca­sion. We said that any lady who would like to join us next year will be VERY wel­come.

John Dun­ster­ville en­ter­tained us with his ukulele and gui­tar. He is a very tal­ented and popular guest speaker. We all had had a splen­did af­ter­noon which fin­ished with a fes­tive raf­fle.

Miss Dobbs wished all a Very Happy Christ­mas and peace­ful New Year.
