Learning to listen

Stanhoe WI members take time out to learn more about one another.

Nobody was quite sure what members were going to do when they came to the Stanhoe and Barwick WI meeting in January, which was entitled “Getting to Know You”. But it turned out to be a very noisy, sociable, enjoyable, fun afternoon.

Tea is an essential part of the listening process

Each member was paired with another member, and was provided with a sheet of six questions. Having chatted to each other for ten minutes, everyone reported back to the assembled room about their new friend at the table. It was an eye opener to find that members lived in so many neighbouring villages, and so many originated from so far away (only three of us from Norfolk, and many from London), and that we had all joined to meet other people. And one lady had us in stitches by reciting one of her poems (writing poems is a hobby of hers), about “Being the fairy on top of the Christmas tree”.


Listening hard…

The serious part of the meeting, voting on the five Resolutions put forward by The National Federation for selection for the national AGM, was clearly carried out. And members still departed in a happy mood, looking forward to the WI year ahead.
