Bring them along to the next Market Harborough WI meeting and give them to any Committee Member.
The highlight of this week’s Christmas meeting just had to be the toilet roll snowman competition. A member from each team stepped up and the rest of the team used toilet paper, hats, scraves, carrots, straws and pens to decorate their model.
Two Spirits, a new, local distillery supplied samples of gin, vodka and absinthe, with the chance to buy some last minute Christmas presents at a specially discounted price.
The supper table was laden with all sorts of exciting foods to sample.
All Christmas raffle prizes were from local organisations. Some had also generously donated prizes.
Teams had great fun all evening playing ‘Chrisolympics’. Games included making a nativity scene from play dough (click for recipe), blindfolded sampling to decide which was the best or cheapest mincepie, guessing the names of stars dressed in Santa outfits, millionaire drop and Christmas Pictionary.
Happy Christmas and best wishes for the New Year to all our members.
A reminder that your annual membership is due by the end of December. It’s £34.70 – excellent value for 11 monthly meetings each year and the chance to meet new friends.
At the December meeting on the 18th, bring along your cheque or cash and speak to Committee members at the door as you arrive. You can also ask for the bank details so you can pay by bank transfer.
Unfortunately, if you haven’t paid by the end of January latest, your name will be taken off the membership list.

Kara, Sun reporter, a photographer and the WI national press officer visited our November meeting (when we were card making).
Do make sure Wednesday 18th December is in your diary. It’s 7.30 pm at the Congregational Church, Bowden Lane. There’s lots happening and it should be a great start to Christmas festivities.
Local distillery, Two Birds Countryside Spirit (click to find out more and why they are so special), will be visiting with a chance to taste their locally produced spirits: London Dry Gin, Vodka and Absinthe. You will also be able to buy their products at a discounted price for the evening, so a great chance to complete your Christmas shopping, while enjoying an evening with friends!
‘Chrisolympics’ are planned. So, again, lots of fun for everyone as we can all take part in some crazy seasonal games.
Do bring a plate of nibbles to share – it’s a Dutch supper. If you want to share a glass of wine with other members, then do bring a bottle and some glasses.
Looking forward to another great evening to celebrate the end of Market Harborough WI’s second, very successful year. See you there!
