Christmas Evening 2016

 

The Christmas gathering of the Chartham W.I. took place in the Village Hall on December 15th, 2016. Members were invited to bring a guest each and the hall was soon filled for a very enjoyable evening. A brief business session was conducted by our new President - Steve Dungay - after which we settled down to enjoy ourselves with a glass of wine and good company.

The Old Wives Lees Choir were invited to entertain us and we enjoyed an hour of Christmas Carols ranging from the 16th century 'Gaudete' to the Shakin' Stevens hit "Merry Christmas Everyone". Mark Harding conducted and joined in the singing with some beautiful harmonies.

After the music we all filed up and began to work our way along the festive buffet provided by members who had each brought in something delicious to tempt us with.

A great finale to 2016!

We are proud to announce that we received a grant from Awards for All for £8,400.00 which enabled many of our members to attend a course of their choice at Denman WI college in Oxfordshire during our celebratory year.

We offer friendship and support to women in Chartham, whilst providing education and interesting leisure activities. We have an active social calendar along with a varied list of speakers, details of which may be accessed on this web site.

Why don’t you come along one evening and meet us all - we would love to see you.
