Summer Break? What Summer Break?

The weather has finally found the right season and glorious summer sunshine is with us. Although the Market Harborough WI is officially on the annual Summer Break, there is a lot going on this month:

The Craft Club used their July session to learn about Mirror Work – requiring some concentration to deal with the fiddly bits, but fun nonetheless.

The Walking Club meanwhile took advantage of the fabulous weather and went for a walk along the canal at Foxton Locks (on the shady side of the path!) and a well-deserved refreshment break at the end

At the allotment in Stevens Street it is all systems go on the watering front as the first raspberries are ripening and the seedlings start to turn into real plants. The Gardening Girls are there every Monday afternoon – why not pop round to have a look?

And the next Book Club Meeting is on the 20th July at 2.30pm at the Cafe at the Langton Garden Centre. The Book of the month is:

‘The Phone box at the edge of the world’ by Laura Imai Messina

Book Club July 2022

If all that activity was not enough to swamp your diary, there is the July Social Event: Meet us at the Langton Arms in Church Langton on the 27th July at 7pm for Dinner in the Garden Room at 7.30pm.

Warriors, Dogs and Happy Babies

Last night members of the Market Harborough WI enjoyed a brilliant session with Yoga teacher Sam Winters. Sam practices Vinyasa Yoga, which is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Hence it is commonly known as ‘Flow Yoga’.

We practised some yoga moves – the warrior, downward dog, child pose and happy baby pose. At the end of the session Sam also talked about various other types of yoga and where they originate from. All in all a ‘totally chilled evening’ as one of the members termed it.

If you are interested in joining one of Sam Winter’s classes you can find her on Facebook:

An Evening Walk along the Canal

The Walking Group’s June Walk took the group from Union Wharf along Alvington Way to Burnmil Road and through the fields west of Great Bowden.

We then joined the canal off Leicester Lane and followed it back to the Wharf – where the obligatory celebratory end-of-walk drink awaited… Lovely evening!

And if you would like to join the Market Harborough WI or are a member already and would like to participate in the walking club have a look around this website to see what is planned for this year or email us at marketharboroughwi@gmail.com

Green, Rinks, Mats and Jacks

The Market Harborough WI went bowling at the Little Bowden Bowling Club for their July Social Event. The weather was perfect when the group met at the club in the early evening.

Volunteers from the club were on hand to provide instruction and teach the basics before the teams played a couple of rounds. The evening was rounded off with refreshments and some delicious pizzas.

Great fun all round – many thanks to the Little Bowden Bowling Club for having us!

Guess that Dance!

The May Monthly Meeting of the Market Harborough WI featured an introduction to South American Music by Los Amigos – a group of three friends based in Leicestershire.

20220525_200204

The members of the group are all passionate about latin american music – and since they also happen to be music teachers they not only provided interesting bits of information about the various aspects of the music, they also had us guessing tunes and dance rythms.

While Verity Morris with her clarinet and Neville Cooper on the guitar are more involved in carrying the tunes, the percussion instruments deliver most of the foot-tapping-inducing rythm. And there were a lot of them! Harry Heppingstall demonstrated a cross section – from the traditional two pieces of wood to the ‘fish box’ with guitar strings to bongos and a peruvian box drum – and then proceeded to demonstrate how many he could play at the same time without loosing the rythm. At times there seemed to be more than the regulation two hands and two feet involved! It was an entertaining evening that had us tapping our feet and humming along long after the music had finished.

Reminder: MHWI Monthly Meeting this Wednesday!

Our next monthly meeting is this coming Wednesday, 25th May at 7.30pm and will feature an evening with LOS AMIGOS who will teach us all about South American Music and Dance.

We will also continue our book sale and start a new recycling project for the collection and recycling of blister packs. So if you have any books to donate or blister packs to contribute, please bring them along!

Hope to see you all on Wednesday at 7.30pm at the Church Hall in Fairfield Road!
