Really nice to see so many of you tonight and welcome to the two new ladies.

This Saturday is our trip to Walmer Castle to celebrate the WI centenary, see you all at Sittingbourne Station at 11.45.


Friday 11th September is our Beetle Drive, for those of you who haven’t been before it is a silly, fun, noisy game with a pair of dice and a pen and paper, it’s not rocket science!  If your name isn’t on the list and you fancy coming just let me know. Otherwise see you all at the Village Hall for a 7pm start. We supply all the food just bring your own drink.


The inter WI quiz (aka The Top Team Quiz) is on Monday 21st September at Phoenix House 6.45pm. If any of you are free we still need one player and I need help in the kitchen please!


The Bredgar Group of WIs have their Group Meeting on Thursday 8th October at 7.45 Tunstall Village Hall. History of the Medway Queen is the topic of the talk. At present there are ten names on my list but if you fancy it please let me know ASAP.


Borden WI have their 66th birthday party on 13th October at 2.15pm, the entertainment will be Ian Porter – Young Dickens.  It is president plus two and I have Lyn, Barbara and Diana Cramp.


We will be going to the Creek Creative, Faversham on Saturday 17th October 10.15 to learn about ‘free from’ cookery with Lorraine. It is free with tea, coffee and cakes available to buy on the day. At present 6 of us are going but if you didn’t get the chance to put your name down call me ASAP and I’ll add you to the list. I know some of you can’t make that day so we will see how it goes and arrange another date, possibly 21st November.


Our 93rd Birthday is on Thursday 19th November and will be a fun evening. We have entertainment by the Free Guard Singers and it will be a good evening. As we said we would like a nice table of canapés and savouries. If you haven’t put your name down please do so next month, there will be a lot of people so we will need plenty of food.


There is a coach trip to London on Friday 11th December leaving Sittingbourne station 9am going to Borough Market then Covent Garden finishing off with a visit to the Oxford St lights. It is £22 and non-members are invited. Please let me know asap if you would like to join Lyn, Lindsey and myself.

I will call Jo Arnell from Hornbrook Manor to enquire about the Christmas Decoration days, if you are interested please let me know, date and price to follow.


Next month, Thursday 1st October, we have Alison Carter from Dementia Friends talking about Dementia. It might not be a fun subject but Alison is extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about dementia care and awareness.
