Houghton WI News for December 2014

At our November meeting Jim and Nicky Pascoe showed us their stunning photographs taken in Italy. To obtain the right images they got up before dawn in order to catch the early morning light illuminating the countryside. Their passion for serious photography was illustrated by romantic images of Venice and Tuscany which made many of us want to visit these amazing places.

Congratulations to our Darts Team who came third in the Hampshire Final. This is a great achievement for a small village WI.

Five members spent a very enjoyable day decorating Christmas Cakes under Fiona Evans’ expert tutelage. Enormous thanks go to her for inviting us to her studio, making us all feel so welcome and proud of our achievements.

Our CHRISTMAS MEETING is on MONDAY 8th DECEMBER at 7.30 This is an open meeting to which all are invited. We will be serving an American Supper, and entertained by Ian Kirk, who is a member of The Magic Circle and International Brotherhood of Magicians. There will be a sales table with crafts and gifts made by our members as well as a splendid raffle. This is an opportunity for us to raise funds for our WI as well have a really enjoyable evening.

Could you please let me know, in advance, if you would like to join us on December 8th so that we can make suitable catering arrangements.

If you have any items that you would like to contribute to the sales table or raffle, do please bring them to Virginia Cottage, or contact me and I will collect.
