We were proud to host the Spithead Group Carol Service on Sunday. Thanks to Carol, Pam and Brenda for organising a lovely carol service and to our members who helped on the day. The home-made mince pies went down a treat!
We were pleased to have over 50 people in attendance from the Spithead Group and Brighstone WI. We raised over £90 for the Admiral Nurses. Thanks to everyone who attended.
In November, we collected 33.45kg of food and Christmas treats to the food bank.
JG kindly delivered this on our behalf and was inspired by the tour of the food bank led by Jeff Connolly. Jeff thanked the members of Bembridge Windmill WI, and explained that they also help provide food for children in the school holidays who don`t receive the free meals they would normally.
We had a successful coffee morning in the village hall to raise funds for our work. As ever, our members pulled together to make sure we had lots of cakes, books, crafts and plants, and that our tombola was as popular as ever!
We had a very busy weekend with our display at the Flower Festival, the theme of Each Peach Pear Plum.
Our popular stall at the Bembridge Street Fair on Bank Holiday Monday also kept us on our toes! Thanks to our members for contributing delicious cakes, beautiful crafts and lovely plants for us to sell, and thank you to those who supported our fundraising efforts by buying them.
