October 2019 newsletter

Published by AbingdonFitzharrysWI on


I hope some  of you were able to go along to the craft exhibition at Didcot. It was well worth a visit. I expect by now you will have heard the news that our entry came third out of 23.   Congratulations! Well done Fitzharrys. Our thanks to everyone in the team.  

There was a variety of amazing craft work exhibited by WI members, past  and present.  A number of our members  had their work on display.  Please bring your exhibits  on Tuesday evening for us all to see.

Our Bring and Share supper/games night went well.  I think everyone enjoyed listening to one another’s reactions to Anita’s questionnaire.  The Bingo caused much hilarity, taking it almost to the last number on the board to find the winner.

This month we’re having a pottery work shop.  The speaker will be bringing a range of items for us to decorate for which there will be a small charge.

Here are some dates for your diary.
