On May 2nd Nether Heyford W.I. ladies went to visit Rugby School. Sadly, due to a
swollen ankle I couldn’t go but I am reliably informed that it was a very interesting
and enjoyable evening with the Chapel earning a special mention. Unfortunately the
weather was not at its best but I’m guessing that the laughter still flowed!
At our meeting on Thursday June 6th Analiza Jones is coming to talk to us about the
making of hand woven bags from the Philippines. The fibre of stalks from locally
grown plants, like Abaka and Buntal, end up as vibrantly coloured bags which are
not only light and strong but also water resistant. It should be interesting to find out
about the hard work that goes into the harvesting, drying and weaving these lovely
bags so, if you would like to join us for the evening, we will be in the Village Hall at
7.30. The cost for non-members is £5 and refreshments will be included.
Our July meeting will be a talk on ‘Antiques and Collectables’ by Denise Cowling.
This was scheduled for last year but Denise was ill and unable to come so we are
very much looking forward to seeing her in 2019.
A reminder (just in case you have missed all the others!) that our Village Fete is on
Saturday June 8th. The W.I. will be having a produce stall as usual and we hope you
will come and meet us and support our Village Hall. How lucky we are to have such
a beautiful centre to our village and a hall that allows us to take part in so many
different activities. All we need now is the sun!
