January 5th - Alfred Sisley Talk By Malcolm Meadows
Our 2022 program got off to a great start in January with two meetings on the same day. Members braved the wintry weather to meet in the slightly chilly village hall for afternoon tea and a beetle drive. This proved to be a nice way to catch up on our news, whilst at the same time enjoying the game and the homemade cakes!
Later in the evening members joined an excellent talk on Zoom given by Mr. Malcolm Meadows on the impressionist artist Alfred Sisley. Mr. Meadows has a vast knowledge of art history and as ever, gave an illuminating talk on this artist and the Impressionist Art Movement.
February 2nd - Resolutions
February’s meeting saw us back in the village hall for a discussion on this year’s WI resolutions. Every year the NFWI draws up a shortlist of five resolutions that individual WI groups are encouraged to discuss and debate. They then vote for the one they feel most deserves to be campaigned for, and the one receiving the highest number of votes goes forward to the National Federation.
After presentations were made by individual members voted for the resolution they wanted to go forward.
March 2nd - Craft Demonstration
14 members and 2 visitors enjoyed an interesting talk by Karen Stott on the subject of Indigo dyeing.
