The new WI has gone from strength to strength with a membership that has increased to forty. We have an enthusiastic membership of mixed ages and a friendly warm welcome awaits all members old and new. We offer the opportunity to learn, develop and pass on new skills, to belong to something special, making friends, working as a team and having fun with events.
Our WI meetings are held on the third Monday of the month at 7.30pm at Pilton Village Hall. In addition we hold bi monthly coffee mornings in members’ homes and twice a year we meet for lunch at a local pub, restaurant or cafe. We also arrange outings to local places of interest and these have included Cole Manor at Bruton and visits to Wyke Farm and Yeo Valley to look at the cheese and yogurt making processes.
Over the past year, we have enjoyed a varied programme, which have included a talk on the history of the local carnivals, Wine Tasting Evening by Majestic Wines and a taste of how the Scot’s celebrate Burns night (see below). Future events planned for 2017 include a presentation on the “History of Clarks Shoes”, and an introduction to Tai Chi, along with many other WI County Events available to members.
Why not come and give us a try, you don’t need to know how to bake, and it’s not all about Jam and Jerusalem!!
