We are a friendly, fun WI meeting every third (3rd) Monday afternoon of the month at 2pm at the Methodist Church Hall, Richmond. We have had speakers on diverse topics ranging from history to belly dancing! We also have regular outings throughout the year visiting gardens, museums and stately homes usually taking in tea and cake along the way.
We have a monthly craft group meeting on the first (1st) Monday of the month 2pm – 4pm in the Scout Hut, Quakers Lane. We share skills between us, have Craft and chat sessions and also have experienced tutors occasionally.
New members and visitors always welcome.
Why not come and join us for a meeting and see if the WI is for you?
