Five of us made our way over to the Old Smithy car park at Godshill. Before setting off, we were deciding whether to have lunch at the Old Smithy cafe or The Griffin. We popped into the Old Smithy to look at their menu. We decided that we preferred The Griffin. Because Wednesday is a carvery day at The Griffin, it’s prone to getting very busy so we booked our table before doing the walk.
We walked up to Beech Wood from behind The Griffin. Here, we admired the bluebells and Pam took our photo:
We paused to look at the animals on the south side of Godshill Park Farm before plodding up GL44 to Freemantle Gate, formerly an entrance to the Appuldurcombe Estate. Pam took another photo, ‘Why are Creekside WI members behind bars – what have they been up to?’
Let battle commence! Rookley WI enjoyed yet another delicious meal with Creekside WI followed by a very competitive kurling session. Some players were given lots of encouragement and others sabotaged through distraction before making their slide. A huge ‘Thank-you’ again to Jenny Gaches and WI helpers for the most yummy cottage pie and apple crumble and to all those who made it such a fun filled evening.
Enthusiastic and dedicated members were up bright and early on a cool morning to lay out a tasty selection of cakes, jams, marmalade and marzipan fruits at the Havenstreet ‘Steam up’. It turned out to be a beautiful day with plenty of hungry passers by. Well done all those who supported this fundraiser.
Members of Creekside WI spent a warm, sunny afternoon enjoying a delicious tea at the Lakeside Spa Hotel, Wootton Bridge, to celebrate the marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle. We were greeted by the happy couple on arrival then sat down to a beautifully presented array of sandwiches, scones and cake. Plenty of tea, coffee if preferred and chat…….
Best wishes to the Harry and Meghan and ‘Thanks’ to Jo and Ann for organising the event.
2 games were played to stimulate our brains. SPITE AND MALLACE a card game. and RUMIkUB – a numbers game. Both are great fun.
The sessions last 2 hours and tea and biscuits are served to keep up the hydration level!!!!. THE rumikub is secretive and the player who wins feels elated having caught out her opponents.
Calculaters are not allowed, but I am sure we can all count to 30 !!!!

Sun, sea round the corner and crazy golf, what more could you want? Fourteen members of Creekside WI polished up their golfing skills bouncing over a humped back bridge, skillfully negotiated a hole in a wall and whizzed round boulders and more to get the balls in the holes. There were some who even ended up in the major rough off green! Well done everyone!
Thanks to Cheryl Howell for organising a really fun afternoon followed by delicious refreshments in the cafe.
