WI update

Stanhoe WI members meet on the playing field.

For their June meeting 10 Stanhoe and Brwick WI members met on the playing field complete with chairs, umbrellas as sunshades, and their own refreshments. It was really good to meet up again after so long and much chatting ensued in the sunshine.

We welcomed some new members, and introduced ourselves by name and the villages in which we lived, which showed how diverse is our membership.

We look forward to a garden meeting in July, and then being back in the hall with a speaker in August.

WI activity

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members have kept busy with walks, crafts and Zoom.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI have been actively engaging with members in recent months now that the end of lockdown is in sight.

Recently two groups of us participated in Women Walk The World afternoons with a maximum of six permitted participants on each one. The first was a short walk in Syderstone followed by tea and cake at the home of our secretary. The second was on a blustery afternoon at Burnham Deepdale where five of us accompanied by four dogs walked out along the coastal path, with beautiful views over the saltmarsh towards the sea, followed by tea and cake at he home of one of our vice chairmen. The donations from the afternoon went as a contribution to the national Associated Country Women of the World (ACWW) fund helping women in less well developed countries.

The committee have also been learning how to run Zoom meetings, and after two introductory meetings run by our president today ran a workshop for members. Our treasurer patiently took us through the stages of making two paper folded heart shaped bookmarks.

It caused much hilarity along the way! But we were really pleased to have created an easy heart-shaped item as we have all been asked to create green hearts in any medium for a county-wide display in July. We do thank Julia for her patience and giving us such a fun May meeting.

And we all look forward to being able to meet again in person as a WI before too long.

Note the horse box on its side – the horse was lucky to escape without serious injury

An incident outside Stanhoe yesterday (21 April) at the junction of Bircham Road with the B1454 left two cars damaged and a horse box on its side, reports Mary-Anne Hallinan: ”They got the horse out and were walking it around, don’t think anyone has been hurt.  Some very shocked people about!”. The crash happened at around 3 pm.

Pamela Austin, who forwarded the news, says there was another, apparently less serious, accident at the same point a couple of weeks ago.

WI Easter goodies

Surprise Easter goody bags give Stanhoe WI members a lift.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members were thrilled to receive a surprise Easter bag, containing a multitude of goodies, put together, and in many cases, created, by the committee. Amongst other delights, the ladies will be planting seeds, making cheese scones, completing an art challenge and demolishing a creme egg! As one member commented, the bags managed to “cheer us on and give us a sense of togetherness”.

We have now held two Zoom chat sessions, quite a revolution in our one hundred years of existence! Last week’s, entitled Poets and Authors, gave members the opportunity to share favourite poems and to recommend, or not, their current reading matter.

Once warmer weather blesses us, we intend to start meeting again, initially in groups of six and outside, of course.

Stanhoe & Barwick’s Facebook page gives further details of our recent activities.

New members are always welcome! or phone her on 01485 576261.

RAF Bircham Newton Heritage Centre is just down the road from Stanhoe at the National Construction College, Bircham Newton, Norfolk PE31 6RH. The college is signposted from the A148 and the B1454.

The Heritage Centre has a unique collection of memorabilia from the former RAF station’s past service, which spanned more than 44 years, including two world wars and the Cold War. On display are photographs and personal memories of servicemen who served there and other related items from its fascinating history. The Centre is manned and run entirely by volunteers, many of whom are ex-servicemen or children of service personnel. Close by are two stone memorials to remember those who served at Bircham Newton and its main satellite airfield near Docking.
