Pencader WI

Recent meetings have been most entertaining. In March we met at the Porth Hotel for our St. David’s Day lunch. As usual, we held our meeting and enjoyed traditional Welsh cooking at the same time.

April’s meeting was very lively. Richard Keen, the Ukulele Man, visited. He brought with him enough ukuleles for everyone to play. We had a wonderful time. After some practice, we were able to play ‘Singing the Blues” together, albeit quite slowly! Richard was a very entertaining speaker: it was a fun afternoon.

May’s outing to Aberglasney Gardens was lovely. We were given a tour of the upper gardens and enjoyed afternoon tea afterwards. Luckily, the rain held off until we were back on the mini bus ready to come home!

We have many more interesting meetings planned for this year:

Tuesday 5th June talk on bees and how to attract them

Tuesday 3rd July day trip to Llanelli House

Tuesday 4th September talk by a Trading Standards Officer

Tuesday 2nd October the importance of walking for good health

If you would like to join us at any time, we’d be pleased to see you.

Meetings are held in the Pavilion at 2pm on the 1st Tuesday of the month.

W.I. members can also take part in many other activities and events, organised by the Federation. eg Book Clubs, Dominoes, Darts, Craft workshops, Walks, competitions, Fashion Shows and short holidays.

(Mary recently enjoyed a trip to Holland with the W.I.)

So, if you are thinking about joining, remember there’s a lot more to W.I. than monthly meetings in the Pavilion.
