Newsletter for February 2016


On Saturday 5th March we will be helping to host a coffee morning at Frinsted 10.30 – 12.00. We are responsible for the raffle but we also need donations of cakes and bric-a-brac. All money raised goes to Whizz Kidz and it is a good chance for a nice get together. If you are not sure where to go or want someone to go with just let me know.

We are having our annual Quiz Night on Friday 15th April at 19.30. It is a really good evening and if you do not have enough people to fill a table (6-8) just let us know and you can sit on a table with others. If you are interested please let me know.

There is a meeting at Chartham on Monday 18th April 10.30-1.30 to discuss this years proposed resolution. We went last year to the first one and it was a very interesting discussion which shed light onto the subject. There is a lunch included in the cost of £6.50. Please let me know if you are interested in attending ASAP.

The Group Meeting is being hosted by us this year on Wednesday April 20th at 19.30. The cost is £1.50 per person and the entertainment is by Martin Harrison with ‘Mediterranean melodies – a cruise in song’. It will be a lovely evening and we would like to have as many of our ladies as possible. This is the bi-annual meeting where the WI’s within the Bredgar Group all get together and is a really good way of meeting other Groups and ladies. Please let me know if you will be attending.

We are visiting Belmont House and Gardens on April 26th, meeting 10.30 at Belmont. The tour costs £7 and food is extra, you are welcome to bring partners or friends. This will be a lovely day and a great start to spring.

In September we are visiting Quex Cotton Powell museum. We will meet at Quex on the 7th. The cost is £14 including a cream tea. Time to follow.

Please give your name to either Mandy or myself if you would like to join us at either of these events.

We also have a visit planned to the Sikh Temple in Gravesend, two dates have been suggested 21st or 28th June, Mandy will confirm date at our next meeting. Headscarves will be required.

Another date for the end of the summer is our Beetle Drive on the 2nd September. This is a fast, hectic noisy night out and brilliant fun!

There will be other outings and chances for meeting up throughout the year.

We will be visiting Creek Creative in March on a Thursday at 3pm (date to be confirmed).

There will also be another film night soon; Barbara will send you details when she has them.

If there is anything above that you are not clear about just contact me and I will try to shed some light on it!

See you on March 3rd at 19.30. We have Forever Beauty advising us on skincare and one lucky lady will get a mini facial.

Hostesses are Andrea, Barbara and Ann.
