After their Annual Meeting members of Warmingham WI had to put on their thinking caps again. Speaker Bill Scraggs put them to work with a case study. This fictionalised sequence and the discussions and questions it raised provided a framework through which he shared his experience working as a Probation Officer. It gave an illuminating glimpse into the world of the Probation Service and the punishment and rehabilitation of those who’ve committed crimes. In the ongoing debate(s) about proposals to make private companies responsible for probation work, Warmingham members will be well informed about a wide range of the issues involved.
Warmingham WI will have a special meeting on Wednesday 4th December. Touring players the Folksey Theatre are coming to provide an evening’s entertainment. This event is being opened to include members’ friends and family and to neighbours in the village who are being invited to pick up a free ticket. It begins, as usual at 7.30pm.
Visitors are always welcome, without having to commit to joining. The meetings take place in Warmingham Village Hall (CW11 3QN) at 7 30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month.
