Womens Institute


The WI meets at The Memorial Institute Hall, South Leverton at 7.30pm, on the third Wednesday of the month. We currently have 28 members with ages ranging from 50 to 90 but we are all young at heart.





REVIEW : The June meeting was a visit to The Olde Bell at Barnby Moor for a talk, tour and cream tea which all those present enjoyed. There was also an opportunity for a brief look at the new spa facilities.

The July meeting was where Diane Hemsley from the craft shop in Retford came to talk to us about buttons. She obviously treasures them and had some lovely button tins as well. It was amazing to see the different items she had made and we had a fun time making things to take home.

The visit to Retford Little Theatre to see Hi de Hi also proved successful and it was a very funny production.

The Nottinghamshire Federation are celebrating their centenary and ten of us attended a centenary lunch at the Olde Bell which was lovely with nice food, nice company and a good speaker.

The June lunch club was at The Queens Hotel and later the same day a team competed in the county quiz.
