As well as our monthly meetings, held usually on the first Thursday of each month at the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm, we enjoy a range of activities. There’s fortnightly walking netball, energetic and great fun; darts, where we regularly feature among the cup winners; walks, either along local footpaths or following themed trails in Newark; and occasional “specials”.
In September it was the chance to learn steel pan drumming (huge concentration required but huge satisfaction) and in November it’s the opportunity to make our own Christmas wreaths using foliage brought from our gardens as well as festive additions. Our speakers are invariably excellent. October brought local girl Carole Fisher talking about her Farming Year, and in November it’s Stacy Woodward, Service Lead for Insight Healthcare, on “Improving the mental health and well-being of the people we serve”. Singularly appropriate, since the WI’s project this year is to do with mental health.
All are welcome to our meetings. Entrance is free for your first visit and there’s always tea, coffee, cake or biscuits.

If you are having any fireworks, please let pet owners near to you know of your plans, so they can take necessary action to protect their pets. Thank you.
