Sutton-on-Trent WI

Sutton-on-Trent Parish Website Sutton-on-Trent WI

Sutton-on-Trent WI meet on the first Thursday of each month at the Methodist Church Hall (behind the Methodist Church) on Main Street. The meetings start at 7.30pm and generally run for a couple of hours starting with a rendition of Jerusalem quickly followed by the monthly business which includes details of upcoming events organised by our own group and through the Nottinghamshire federation.

Next comes the main event of the evening, generally a talk, followed by tea / coffee and biscuits and time to chat with friends afterwards.

We don’t have a formal meeting in August as this is the time for our annual outing. In the past few years, we have visited Cosworth Hall near Doncaster, Renishaw Hall near Chesterfield and had a lovely cruise with lunch on board a canal boat from Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire.

Outside our monthly meetings our theatre group enjoy seeing productions at both the Robin Hood Theatre in Averham and the Palace Theatre in Newark.

Together with the WI's from Egmanton, East Markham and Laxton we form the River Group and meet twice a year - A Group Meeting with a speaker or other entertainment and refreshments, and in December we meet up for a Group Carol Service at one of the local churches.

Past group meetings have included a talk and cookery demonstration from the ‘Ladies in Pigs’, an entertaining talk by Jim Wright the son of the famous vet Donald Sinclair (known to everyone as James Herriott), and a performance by the local U3A Ukulele band.

Visitors pay £5.00 per visit.

Access is by the front door with a step up. The side door can be opened with a ramp if requested.

Subscriptions:  Subscriptions to the WI are paid annually in January and are set by the National Federation. Subscription charges for the year 2022/23 are £44.  Pro-rata rates apply to anyone joining through the year.

The Committee is made up of:

President:      Liz McKendrick

Secretary:    Sue Greaves

Treasurer:   Lyndy Scott-Parkin

Other Committee Members are : Val Cree, Sylvia Harness, Kate Prichard,  Heather Blanchard, Judy Ward
