Gosberton Womens Institute

Gosberton WI meets on the second Tuesday of every month at the Public Hall Gosberton at 7pm. 

We normally have a short business meeting, an interesting speaker or demonstration and refreshments before heading home.

We get involved with various issues, nationally and those of a local interest. The issue of single use plastics is always uppermost and following the recent national pandemic, we are concerned about mental health problems and loneliness.

Gosberton WI is still going strong despite the efforts of the dreaded "Covid".

In November we had a sociable evening with members sampling the delightful produce made by Alyson from Florence Cottage as well as a members sales table.

The December meeting was again great fun, with entertainment from the Gosberton Hand Bell Ringers and then we were each able make a Christmas wreath, under the very able guidance of Val Sandall. You can see the results of our labours here:

It was decided not to meet in January  - giving us all chance to recover from any Christmas excesses! 

At our next meeting, February 8th, we shall be talking "hair care" with Dannii. The competition will be a hair ornament of any kind, and there will be a bring and buy stall.

In the meantime, members are knitting hats for the premature baby unit.  The emergency care packs previously donated by members have been made up and will have been delivered to the ULHT by the time this magazine is published.

Ladies are always welcome to come to our meetings and those becoming new members now can do so at the discounted price of £22. For more information ring our president, Rosemary on 01775 640573 or our secretary Jeannette on 01775 841779, or why not visit the national website  www.thewi.org.uk
