Women's Institute

South Milton WI meets on the third Thursday of the month at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.  We are affiliated to the Devon Federation of Women’s Institutes and are able to take advantage of any events organised by them, as well as the items organised by our own group. Added to our monthly meetings are outings, and community events.

We also have two book groups and opportunities for members to meet women from other branches in our area for craft workshops.

We are always happy to welcome new members and we would be pleased to meet you if you would like to come along to a meeting to see if it’s right for you. Holiday visitors are also welcome.

Our appeal for clothes and specific food items to help the refugees, especially those on the Greek islands and in Syria, is ongoing and thank you all so much for your support so far.  Knitted squares are being put together to make cheerful warm blankets to send out.  For details of what is being collected, there is a list in the Village Hall porch, on the table above the collection box or contact Ann Collyer for more information.

This month, we heard all about ‘Women and Witches’ from Charlie.  She had unearthed some interesting facts and very gruesome photos for us so thank you for all your hard work, Charlie.

We had a wonderful evening with Julia this month.  She is such a talented lady and about six of us brought our cakes to decorate.

On 20th December, we have our last meeting of the year and we are going to make crackers!  As before, if you just want to come along and laugh at the efforts of the ones who want to have a go, just come for the social side of things.  As always, we ask you to bring a SMALL plate of nibbles.  The fun-packed programme for 2019 will be available at the December meeting.

Thanks for all your help and support during the year.

See you all soon.
