Richmond WI meets in the church hall behind St Joseph and St Francis Xavier Church, Newbiggin, DL10 4DT, on the second Monday of the month at 7 p.m. There is no meeting in August. We usually have a speaker at the start at the meeting, followed by refreshments. We then give out details of any up-coming activities.
In addition to the meeting, we have a needlecraft afternoon, a walking group and a Mah Jong evening each month and organise other events as requested by members.
Visitors are welcome without charge for a couple of meetings, so prospective new members can see what Richmond WI is about.
Annual membership for 2017 is £39.00, but new members joining throughout the year pay a pro rata rate, depending when they join.
The regular Mah Jong evening will not take place in August, due to the bank holiday. The next session will be on on Monday 25th September at 7 p.m. in the Conservative Club in Newbiggin.
There is no monthly meeting in August.
On Monday 11th September, Katie Willcom will tell us about A Wartime Childhood in Romania and Life behind the Iron Curtain.
Details of the Federation visit to Denman College in May next year are now available, including courses in patisserie, researching your family tree, various crafts and visits to arts and crafts gardens.
