A lovely warmer day today, perfect for Tea and Chat. Plenty of scones, tea, and coffee with fruit cake and conversation. Topics covered ranged from disappearing chests to booking an early funeral with a bit of stripping thrown in. What a laugh!
What a lively evening we had at Creekside’s Kurling Evening in Wootton Methodist Church Hall. Tables decorated with fresh spring flowers thanks to committee members, delicious food, thanks to Jenny Gaches and her minions, and lovely company. Members from East Cowes and Headon Hill and Wootton were all out to win! This was one of the noisiest sessions with cheers, groans and plenty of laughter throughout the whole evening. Well done Hazel for her Coup de Gras for the blue team who let out the winning whoooooooop! demonstrating a Mexican Wave. What a great evening we all had. Thanks to the members of the WI’s who came and made it such a memorable evening, come again soon!

Mama Mia! Here we go again enjoying a very happy evening at Creekside WI’ s Sing-a-long-a-Mama Mia. The Name of the Game was chatting, watching, singing and even a bit of Dancing Queen at the back of the room. Luckily the ice creams were not Slipping Through My Fingers or anybody else’s. Voulez Vous come again? When All Is Said and Done, YES WE WOULD! All we can say is Thank you For The Music and what Super Troupers our members and committee are.
The February meeting of the Craft Group was another enjoyable and lively afternoon. Members tried their hand at Needle Felting, making a flower, the biggest challenge being not to prick your fingers. It was not for all however but one or two may do more. We continue to progress with the Knitted Premature Babies 100 hat challenge. Some also stated knitted or crocheted small Smoothie bottle top hats, which will be given to the Help the Aged Charity.
Our next meeting is on 26 March 2-4pm at Ann Pearsons home.
No grey, rainy day blues for some members of Creekside WI because we’ve enjoyed another great afternoon of kurling at Wootton Methodist Church hall. This time members of the Church and WI members played in mixed teams aiming for the bull. Lots of ‘Oooooos and ‘Aaaaaashs’, claps and groans until half time. While we enjoyed tea, coffee, cake and biscuits we sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Hazel, who regularly delivers the ‘coup de gras’ on the last slide of the stones. Then back to play and more laughs. Thanks Jenny Goodall for the organisation, see you again next month.

Great party night at Creekside was enjoyed by us all. With singing from our recently reformed choir singing festive songs that had us all joining in. Our rendition of On the first day of Christmas was great fun.
A super evening at Languard manor hotel in Shanklin was enjoyed by us all.
We arrived either by taxi or private car driven by another member of Creekside.
A traditional Christmas meal followed by coffee and mints, went down very well.
Calls from members saying how much they enjoy the evening was well received by Linda and I.
All our efforts making jam, marmalade and Christmas mince meat, plus crocheted items and Christmas wreaths were on sale at the Methodist church in Newport today.
After a slow start, we sold quite a few of our efforts, and we’re pleased with the profit made.
The items left over will be sold at the next WI meeting on 12th December.
Thanks must go to all the ladies who came to help selling our goods, and not forgetting Sue Fox’s husband Rodney for putting together the tables and selling frame.

What could be nicer than a delicious warming supper followed by an exciting game of Kurling? This week, on a windy, drizzly evening, members of Creekside WI enjoyed meeting members from Whitwell WI for some healthy competition. We got to know each other over cottage pie, peaches and ice cream, then tables were removed, chairs pushed back and we kurled until coffee/tea time. There was plenty of cheering and even more when teams pushed each other off the bull. Tension mounted as the evening came to an end. Who won? BLUE TEAM. ‘Congratulations!’
Thank you Jenny Gaches and members of the committee who helped to make it such an enjoyable evening. Maybe we can have a return match soon.
