For a short while Warmingham WI relived the winter Olympics with much enjoyment and some skill. For their first meeting of the year the key attraction was curling as members got to grips with a version of this intriguing sport designed to be played in ice-free venues. Perhaps come the next winter Olympics, Warmingham will have even greater understanding of the finer points of the sport played on ice.
Warmingham WI’s next meeting may be less active but no less interesting. Roger Burgess will introduce the audience to Northern Ireland on Wednesday 4th February. The meeting begins, as usual at 7.30pm and visitors are welcome.
Warmingham WI were “Putting on the Ritz as their December meeting took on a festive feel. This special meeting was open to friends and family and so there were new faces in the audience. In keeping with the meeting theme everyone was encouraged to come dressed in their glitter and glitz – and so they did. Everyone settled down to enjoy a sparkling presentation by renowned costume expert and museum owner Notty Hornblower. Aided by skilled amateur models she showed an impressive range of original outfits worn for glitzy occasions, the earliest dating from the early years of last century.
Members are looking forward to another busy year and like many are starting with a healthy approach for the January meeting on Wednesday 7th January. This is to be a social evening featuring the opportunity to learn that intriguing winter Olympics star sport of curling. The meeting begins, as usual at 7.30pm and visitors are welcome.
