Chineham and Old Basing NWR (National Women’s Register)

Our planning meeting last month produced many interesting ideas for the year ahead and we are looking forward to some old favourites, like our annual wine tasting and National telephone quiz, plus some new activities including an afternoon tea to celebrate the Platinum jubilee, an evening of Music and Mains dinner, a talk from a forensic scientist and much more.

Our March meeting was on a subject near to most of our hearts: FOOD, and how this had changed since our childhood. Many happy memories were shared of roast on Sunday, cold on Monday, mince on Tuesday pie on Wednesday etc. The only pasta we knew was spaghetti in tomato sauce from a tin. Also the habit of buying fresh food every day as few had refrigerators, just a larder. Nonetheless nothing was wasted a habit many of us still practice today.

Talks and Activities

This month our monthly lunch club will be going to The Old House at Home, Newnham and the reading group will discuss The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman.

As well as our own local group, NWR’s National Group provides a mixture of talks and activities so if you would like to take advantage of all that our organisation offers do come along. We meet in member’s homes, usually at 2pm on the first Monday of the month but occasionally in the evening and the Reading Group meets at 8pm on 4th Thursday every month. Do come along to any meeting if you would like to find out more. You can be sure of a warm welcome with no obligation to join.
