Our 105th Birthday 

On the 7th May 2024, we celebrated our 105th Birthday.  A wonderful tea was provided and of course a birthday cake!  A wonderful group of Appalachian dancers & musicians came to entertain beforehand and encouraged us to join in to make sure we had worked up enough of an appetite for cake.

Annual WI Christmas Fayre                               2023

25th November 2023

A good time was once again to be had at our annual Christmas Fayre in the village.  There were lots of stalls including crafts of all kinds, a bake stall, glassware, artwork, plants as well as a raffle, our local Winniford River Action Group to name just a few. 

Lunch was provided by our WI members who cooked up a storm providing delicious soups, savories, and cakes to all to enjoy after their stall browsing. We were grateful to our menfolk for helping with the serving and set up.

Our Wonderful Chantry Buoys Evening
16th September 2023 

A fantastic evening was had by all who attended our Chantry Buoys shanty singers evening.  Good food, a drink and some brilliant singalong sea shanties brightened up a rather wet September evening as the photos show!
