Annual General Meeting

Our new Women’s Institute committee was elected at our Annual Meeting in May. We thanked our outgoing President Sue Stewart and our Bookings Secretary, Sandy Scott, for all their hard work over the past five years and we presented them with a small gift and flowers. Our new committee will be meeting shortly to plan the next year of activities.

Women’s Institute Quiz & Theatre Trip

Later in May our quiz teams took part in the heats of the Hampshire WI quiz and a theatre trip was organised to the Haymarket to see “On with the Show”. Our annual day trip also took place by minibus to Jordan’s Mill in Bedfordshire to find out how the famous cereal is produced..

We will be welcoming local lady, Penny Jubin, to talk to us at our June Meeting about her career as a “Glass Maiden”. This takes place on Tuesday 4th June at 7.30pm in the Parish Rooms. Later on 15th June we will have our usual stall at the Carnival, so come along early if you want a homemade cake or other baked item as they are very popular and sell out quickly. The following weekend, our talented ladies will be busy again making a flower arrangement for the St Mary’s summer flower festival.

We are a friendly and thriving group and all are welcome to our meetings. If you would like to join us, please contact our President by email at oldbasingpres@hampshirewi.org.uk or come along to our stall at the Carnival and have a chat with us to find out more.
