We meet every second Monday of the Month at 7.45pm in Sheldwich village hall.
Come and join Sheldwich WI, where you will receive a warm welcome, a glass of 'seasonal cheer' (or a cuppa if you prefer) and the chance to meet up with old friends and make new ones! You will be amongst likeminded ladies helping each other, the community and exploring new talents.
CALENDAR FOR 2012
14th May: We are delighted to announce that our speaker in May will be Jonathan Fryer – hotfoot from talking to the Chelsea WI. Jonathan is an actor, prospective Lib-dem candidate, BBC foreign correspondent, Quaker, lecturer at London University SOAS, and contributor to Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the day’. Somehow, Jonathan has found time to come all the way down to Sheldwich and talk to us about his exploits. Not to be missed!
11th June: Car treasure hunt. A first for Sheldwich WI. A summer’s evening out looking for clues in our beautiful country lanes. There will be cryptic clues and prizes for the winners. And a celebratory PimPom cocktail back at HQ!
9th July: Cheryl Fountain. An introduction to water colours. With local artist Cheryl, who lives on the village Lees. Hopefully a balmy summer’s eve in which to relax and, who knows, pick up a new hobby.
14th July: PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE DATE FOR SHELDWICH FETE THIS YEAR. WE HAVE ONCE AGAIN OFFERED TO PROVIDE THE TEAS IN THE VILLAGE HALL. BAKERS AND HELPERS NEEDED!!!!
13th August: Sue Nash. Reviving the art of Crochet. East Kent WI’s very own Sue Nash will be joining us to help revive this cottage craft – which is now back in fashion and seen on the catwalks of London and Milan at recent fashion weeks.
10th September: Simon Reed, the Cider Man. Back by popular request, Simon spoke in 2011 about bees. He is also a cider expert, so get ready for some scrumping!
8th October: Yes, you guessed it… Pumpkin-carving.
12th November: An evening of opera with Simon Thorpe. We are utterly thrilled to have engaged local baritone Simon Thorpe to come and sing for us, with his accompanist. Simon is a world-renowned opera singer and has some interesting anecdotes to tell from his international travels singing. Please come and experience the power of his voice. Simon has been referred to in the press as: “commanding”,” absolutely magnificent” and “sings with authority, sensitivity and great musicality”. Bring a friend – this will be an evening you will NOT forget!
10th December: Christmas social. Carols, mulled wine and mince pies. And we will also be holding a home-spun workshop on making seasonal decorations.
