Showcasing our WI at the ‘Get involved in Village Event’ on 12 October in the Village Hall, the Brightwell cum Sotwell WI was one of 30 organisations presenting information on their organisation to possible new members. The eye-catching table aimed to represent what we do and our board at back gave more details of our campaigns and groups. It attracted interest including several new potential members
Three members visited Hidcote gardens last Thursday 4 th July. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine but not too hot.
The gardens were crammed with colour, not least with these incredible delphiniums, and the whole place looked amazing. All in all a most enjoyable day!
Finally a dryish day for a garden visit. 5 members made their way to these 12 Open Gardens. The day was warm but overcast, just right for viewing gardens.
We met at the Mill – a lovely garden with the stream running through it. Then made our way through most of the gardens, missing out on the Allotments.
We then worked along the street viewing gardens, passing the pub – The Three Alls! Jean and Anne returned to the village hall for tea, pausing to buy plants, while the others finished off the last gardens.
