Margaret Wellington is the publicity officer for Titchfield Abbey WI. Here she looks forward to some exciting events in the group’s calendar.

TITCHFIELD Abbey is a friendly Women’s Institute group which meets on the second Tuesday of each month at Titchfield Community Centre, Mill Lane, at 9.30am.

We have been going for more than 30 years.

There is normally a speaker at each meeting.

Newcomers will be welcome to join us for tea or coffee, meet some of the members and hear about some of the many activities which members enjoy. We have lots going on.

As well as the traditional crafts and cooking, there will also be the opportunity to perhaps join a theatre trip, or enjoy a visit to a garden or stately home.

And why not join one of the rambles or shorter walks, or even a book group?

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 11.

The speaker will be Dawn Perrier Baker, whose subject will be The Mary Rose Trust.

Following that our speaker on November 8 will be Mary Dore, whose subject will be ‘What on earth do you want to keep goats for?’

We are all looking forward to our yuletide fair on Saturday, November 19 at Titchfield Parish Rooms, from 10am until midday.

Stalls will include tombola, quality crafts and gifts, books, children’s toys and books, cakes and preserves, and a hamper competition.

A choice of refreshments, tea, coffee and mince pies will be available and entrance is free. Parking is available behind the hall. Everybody is welcome.

Just pop along to one of our meetings to find out more about us.

You will be very welcome.
