Caterham Hill WI was inaugurated in April 2015 and we are delighted with our growing number of members who meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at The ARC on Weston Drive.
Each meeting is a chance to meet up with old and new friends whilst learning new skills, enjoying a variety of activities and most of all having lots of fun. As well as our Monthly Meetings we also have a variety of smaller groups such as the Needle Nutters (sewing), Book Club and Social Outings, with many more in discussion with our members.
Caterham Hill WI continued to meet by Zoom every month in 2020 following the national lockdown when all our plans changed. Our last meeting at The Arc, where we usually meet on the second Thursday of each month, (except August) was a Drum Workshop hosted by North Downs Drummers. We had a fantastic evening, and it was voted one of our most enjoyable evenings.
April was our 5th Birthday and we celebrated on Zoom, who knew this amazing resource would keep us going and support us throughout the year. May saw us making tiara’s, in June we had Laughing Yoga, July was the history of Eva Peron part one which continued in our September meeting with part two. By October we were ready for games and following a talk on travel (I know who would have thought it possible!) we played the WI version of Would I Lie to You. Our November meeting saw us deliver bags of craft materials so members could make a Christmas table centrepiece and in December we enjoyed a very successful Zoom meeting with a talk on cheese followed by our version of Family Fortune!
2021 will see us crafting for Easter and later in the year learning the Japanese art of Hapa Zome. We have booked speakers on Family Research and Nutrition; we have the fabulous Cocktail Shaker Boys hosting our 6th Birthday party. This is just a taster for the year ahead, we will be singing and eating and drinking our way through the year and we very much hope you will join us.
