Creekside WI Members’ Meeting March 2021

Hooray! We are sort of back…..on Zoom of course. Members were welcomed by President Ann Parker who explained that our new Zoom license would enable us to take more time than the usual 30 minutes.
Happy a Birthday to Joyce Thomas who is ninety this month. We hope you have a wonderful day!🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎂
Linda Sheasby organised a quiz for us; Congratulations to Kimberl
We ended the meeting with a very rousing version of Jerusalem.
See you all for a game of Beetle next week – can’t wait.👍🌈😷


Congratulations to Sue Moore 🏆and Dorothy Maskell for carrying off prizes from the Federation of WI’s quiz tonight. It was a fun evening of answerable questions without being too easy and having fun with ladies and a gentleman from WIs across the Island.  Thank you to Hazel Leech for a well organised fun evening. Can’t wait for the next one!

Creekside WI Swelling Online Beetle (last one in January)

We had a lovely evening together, chatting, laughing and welcoming three more members who have conquered the trickiness of technology and are joining in with our online games. Lovely to see you Jo,( helping Margaret), Margaret and Pat. Our reigning champion Chris did not have a good evening as far as scoring is concerned and was overtaken by Sue. But wait! Do we have another contender for a prize? Yes, Yes, Yes? NO!!! Sue you were the worthy winner of this week’s needle felted Beetle

with 174 points. Congratulations!🥂🎉🎉🎉

Creekside WI are Still Breaking Out!

Put together a lovely sunny afternoon, a big garden where plenty of social distancing can take place, fresh scones, plenty of tea and coffee and WI members coming out of lockdown, what have you got? Plenty of chat and laughter. Our second meeting in the sun…..not the full amount of members which may still be a long way off yet, but still a very pleasant afternoon. Thank you ladies…where next?

Creekside WI are Breaking Out!

We want to break free! Some members enjoyed putting the world to rights in the park in Wootton this week. We took our own chairs, drinks, nibbles and sat at good social distances. It was great to meet members we hadn’t seen for four months and catch up with all the news. Where are we meeting next time cos there’s no stopping us now!?

Creekside WI Beetle Evening

Congratulations! to Christine, the proud winner of her fourth Beetle !!!!!!!! Chrysolina Fastuosa will be winging her way to you to join her other three friends.  There was time for another catch up and next time we’ll have a go at signing in again for an extension. Looking forward to seeing you all next week!👍😷🌈

Creekside Online Cheese and Wine

Warm evening, cool wine and tasty cheese…a lovely way to start an evening; with good company and a quiz that leaves you feeling that you do know something.

Corona virus can’t stop that because Creekside WI ladies are on line!

It was a good opportunity to catch up with local news, check on members and learn something new. Did you know that vanilla pods come from an orchid? Thanks to Cheryl Howell for not eating her cheese before we had the chance to guess what it was and setting the quiz. Book club and Beetle Drive on line next week…there’s no stopping us!


Another evening of fun and friendship when we met via zoom for a bingo session, or do you remember it as ‘Housey Housey’. After a chat it was ‘eyes down’ and we were away.

Two cards were played with points for the first person to complete a horizontal line and then further points for completing the full card. Linda and Ann Pearson called ‘line’ together on the first card which Ann Pearson went on to win.

The second game Sue Moore called line first but it was again Ann Pearson who won the full card.

A Face mask, kindly made and donated by Sue Moore together with a needle felted flower are winging their way to you Ann.
