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.

At the December meeting, we made Christmas crackers.  Ann had found a video showing us how to make them and the photo shows Santa’s Little Elves in full production, liberally fortified with Gill’s mulled wine!

We return on 17th January when we will be celebrating our 85th birthday and we will be considering the NFWI’s 2019 Resolutions.

In February, we will be holding another craft workshop -- Lorna will demonstrate lampshade making.  Our March speaker will be Alan Prince, a master thatcher.  This will be an open meeting when everyone will be welcome.

Thanks to the Committee and members for all your help and support during the year.  A very happy New Year to you all.

Lindy (President) and Charlie (Secretary)
