WI Easter goodies

Surprise Easter goody bags give Stanhoe WI members a lift.

alt text here

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.

Opening times are from 10 am to 4 pm. Disabled access and toilets will be available, and car parking and entrance are free.

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.

WI keeps in touch

Lockdown brings Stanhoe WI members together.

Stanhoe & Barwick WI have found new ways to keep in touch during the lockdowns. It’s been challenging, being unable to meet since March 2020 and with members spread across 11 villages. Nevertheless, the ladies kept in contact with one another, offering support and having a ‘mardle’. A rota ensures that everyone is phoned regularly and all have welcomed the opportunity to chat, many finding that they know one another so much better now.

A successful Christmas raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses and members, raised over £180 for funds. This is now being used to provide little surprises for all members. Valentine’s bookmarks were made by Vice-President Nicki Smith and distributed to all 29 members, who warmly appreciated the thought. The committee are now hard at work organising an Easter gift.

In a first for S&B WI, a Zoom committee meeting was held recently. There was much excitement in viewing Lockdown Hair! The next step is to look at offering regular Zoom chats and Zoom speakers to our members.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI’s Facebook page gives further details of recent activities. New members are always welcome!

Derek Scales would like to thank everyone who came to see his Christmas lights display on his house and in his garden on The Green, and generously put contributions into the collection box for Tapping House in memory of his wife Linda. He was able to take £865 to Tapping House, which was gratefully received.

From snow to spring in a week

A look back at the recent cold snap in Stanhoe.

Today the sun has been shining, the weather is mild and a few early daffodils are out. Little more than a week ago it was a different story, as Pamela Auston reminds us with these pictures taken on 10 and 11 February.
