Fun-filled year for beach WI

Waihi Leader - - News - By NICKY BAILEY

It has been a very busy fun-filled year so far for the Waihi Beach Women’s In­sti­tute.

We have had our sum­mer pic­nic at An­zac Bay and a trip to Ka­iaua for fish and chips and a walk on the beach. We have had two very in­ter­est­ing speak­ers come and talk to us about Ja­pan and the work­ings of St John. In June we had a lovely mid-win­ter meal at the Bowen­town Boat­ing Club and the Waihi Beach RSA Women’s Sec­tion in­vited us to af­ter­noon tea.

We en­tered three teams into the Hau­raki/Thames Dis­trict Women’s In­sti­tute Fed­er­a­tion In­door Bowls com­pe­ti­tion and one of our teams won. We are now off to Ro­torua in Oc­to­ber to rep­re­sent Waihi Beach in the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion. We con­tinue to do baby knit­ting for the Tau­ranga Hos­pi­tal and have sev­eral knit­ted blan­kets to be do­nated to Waipuna Hospice later in the year.

We are look­ing for­ward to our Na­tional Aware­ness Week com­ing up in the sec­ond week of Oc­to­ber.

Look out for posies left around Waihi Beach for lucky lo­cals to find. So far this year we have wel­comed five new mem­bers and we would love to see more. We meet once a month on the sec­ond Mon­day at 1pm at St Peters by the Sea Church Hall, Ma­rine Ave, Waihi Beach.
