Country Dancing

Dancing group started again, after our summer break, on 7th September.

Not all of the members are from our WI.  ‘Calling ‘ the dances is shared on a weekly basis by Brenda Benson from St John’s WI, and by John.  It was John’s turn this week, all the dances  were in  the Playford  style.

The Playfords were a father and son who travelled around the country collecting dances in the 17th and 18th century.

Why not join us  at Church Close, every Thursday 2:30-3:30 new members always welcome

Party in the Park 2017

Sunshine and showers did not stop the intrepid members of Wootton Creek WI manning their gazebo at Party in the Park on Saturday 22nd of July. Despite the worsening weather conditions, a steady flow of passers by stopped to enjoy taking a risk on the Wine or Water stall, chose from the delicious cakes and biscuits to buy or dipped into the children’s Lucky Dip. There was also a choice of books, DVDs and jewellery and hand made crafts to purchase. Were you the lucky winner who found the lost watch somewhere in Wootton?

Photo Club – February & March 2013

In February, Gary Early came to our meeting and tried to give us some advice regarding ideas of things to take for the forthcoming National W.I. Photographic Competition entitled “Inspiring Women”.  Unfortunately, none of us could come up with very much to take photos of.  Gary also had a look at some of the photos the members had taken in January down at Wootton Creek, and we all passed our comments on them.  The aim is to try and find a new cover photo for next years programme.  He also spent some time going through the basic instruction to help new members Anna Pearson and Anne Willshire.  However, we all found it to be an extremely useful refresher course.Creekside Photo Club at Creek  Below are a couple more photos from the afternoon at the Creek.

In March, because it was so bitterly cold and damp with flurries of snow blowing around, we decided to spend the afternoon attempting to download photos from the camera’s memory card onto a laptop, and also a memory stick. For some reason it took us until almost the end of the afternoon for it all to work.  The cold must have got into the computers!!
