LIT­TLE CHAL­FONT EVENING

WI July meet­ing

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GETTING TOGETHER -

We had a lively July meet­ing with a good turn out in­spite of the hol­i­day sea­son be­ing in full swing and we were de­lighted to welcome another new mem­ber.

Denise, who had rep­re­sented us at the Cen­te­nary Royal Gar­den Party, came dressed in her Buck­ing­ham Palace out­fit com­plete with hat, and en­ter­tained us with a re­port of the day.

She had had a mar­vel­lous time and felt very lucky to have been able to at­tend such a mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion.

Ev­ery­one had en­joyed our Midsummer Pud­ding Night and we are now all look­ing for­ward to our an­nual sum­mer lunch which is held in­stead of a meet­ing in Au­gust.

We have made a start on a new sto­ry­sack which, when com­pleted, will be do­nated to St Ge­orge’s School, and our craft group con­tin­ues to be busy with patch­work, knit­ting, cro­chet and all the prepa­ra­tions for our Yarn Bomb­ing and Pub­lic­ity day which will be held on Satur­day, Septem­ber 12.

We are hav­ing a walk along the Colne Val­ley at the end of July, and a Cen­te­nary Tea in Septem­ber so there are lots of things to join in with.

Our speaker for the evening, Peter Hague, gave us an ex­cel­lent and en­ter­tain­ing talk on the history of West Wy­combe and the Dash­wood fam­ily.

If you are in­ter­ested in join­ing us, do have a look at our Face­book page at Face­book.com/ lit­tlechal­fonteveningwi or come and visit us.

Our next meet­ing is on Tues­day Septem­ber 8 at 7.45pm in Lit­tle Chal­font Vil­lage Hall, Cokes Lane when we will hear all about the WI’s own ed­u­ca­tion col­lege, Den­man Col­lege in Ox­ford­shire.
