What Happens at Meetings?

First Impressions

When you arrive, there is usually a committee member waiting inside to welcome people to the meeting, and there is a table with a book for members and visitors to register.   We usually have a copy of our latest newsletters available to look at, raffle tickets to purchase (50p a ticket), and any notices.   Your first meeting is free, and you can attend up to 2 more times without joining, subject to paying a visitor fee.   Our treasurer can advise you of the current pro-rata joining fee payable.


There are around 20 members of our WI and we are a friendly bunch with a wide range of ages and interests.   We are neither ‘Jam and Jerusalem’ nor ‘nipple tassle makers’ (yet!).    Committee members can be identified by their name badges with a green border.

Down to Business

Our meetings officially start at 8pm.   Our President mentions notices and introduces the meeting.   We tend to have a mix of speakers and informal crafting sessions during our monthly meetings.   Members are encouraged to suggest subjects for meetings and propose speakers.   Previous meetings are mentioned in our blog.

Let There be Cake

We don’t sing Jerusalem, but we do like jam, especially in a good cake!   We have a cake rota and always have a refreshment break with tea and coffee.   We just ask for a 50p donation towards your refreshments which goes towards covering the cost of the hall.

And Outside the Meeting?

We have a morning craft club on the second Tuesday of the month, and also have a social group organised through our WhatsApp group.   We have been to the cinema and theatre, visited gardens and other venues, and organised walks.

At Christmas, we usually arrange a social meal out for members to local restaurants.

I want to join!

Contact us on our email info@puckeridgewi.org for more details.   We’d love to see you.

    Hi Lady’s

    Thank you for following us on Twitter, as part of our groups and AED / CPR awareness would you like us to do a talk at one of your meetings?

    Kind Regards
