Walking in Sunshine…

The MHWI Walking Club met for their first walk of the year in Hallaton. The weather god was smiling on us – the sun was out, there was just a gentle breeze and the temperature was perfect for walking.

Walking Club Start in Hallaton

The walk took us past the pond in Hallaton via the edge of the recreation ground across the fields with some magid views over the rolling Leicestershire country side.

Magic Views

Our map reading was a bit rusty after the long hibernation, but we did eventually spot the ‘missing’ bridge and that elusive yellow marker. A couple of hours out and about gave us plenty of opportunity to chat, take photos of the first signs of spring and generally feel at one with the world.

And once back in Hallaton we finished off with well-deserved refreshments at The Fox Inn. What else can a girl want on a Sunday…?

Let’s go walking!

Calling all MHWI Walkers! The Walking Group is coming out of its two year long hibernation!

The Walking Club is a group of like-minded members that enjoy a ramble and a chat. Each walk is about 3.5 miles and usually will take about 1.5 and 2 hours to complete. Walks are not difficult and tend to finish at locations where the group can have a coffe or drink and a natter to round things off.

The group have planned a programme of walks from April to October, which can be found here. All members are part of a WhatsApp group through which the route, meeting place and meeting time are confirmed a couple of days before each walk. If you would like to join the group, please email marketharboroughwi@gmail.com with your name and mobile phone number, so we can add you to the WhatsApp group. Then all you need to join in is suitable footwear, appropriate clothing and a water bottle!

Hope to see you at one of our walking meetings soon!

Have you heard of Omotenashi?

Omotenashi is the Japanese art of guest centric hospitality and an integral part of Japanese culture. It aims to create a memorable experience through flawless preparation and by looking after guests with infinite care and attention.

And members of the Market Harborough WI certainly got treated to a wonderful example of Omotenashi at their monthly meeting last night. Yuko Dixon joined us for a talk about Japanese culture and a demonstration of her cookery craft. By skillfully weaving information about Japan and the ingredients she uses into her cookery demonstration Yuko taught us about the aim to use seasonal ingredients, how school children in Japan learn about a balanced diet from an early age and how to use soy sauce as a condiment – not a sauce.

There was also a raft of useful cookery information about ingredients like sushi rice, shredded dried fish and homemade Terryaki sauce while Yuko cooked Japanese Curry (I bet you didn’t see that one coming!) and made sushi rolls.

And the final highlight of the evening: Members were invited to sample all that delicious food. It was super tasty and a great experience.

If you would like to learn more about Omotenashi Dining why not have a look at Yuko’s Website: http://www.omotenashidining.com? And if you would like to find out more about the Market Harborough WI and what we are up to send us an email at marketharboroughwi@gmail.com or visit our Facebook or Twitter pages.

Up-cycling the Craft Club Way

The Market Harborough WI Craft Club spent an enjoyable evening learning how to use odds and ends, broken jewelry and beads to create new master pieces.

One of our ‘crafty’ members organised the materials and brought a huge selection of items for the group to choose from. And as you can see, the only limitations were our imagination and the finite supply of superglue… A fun way to recycle and up-cycle unloved materials that does not require specialist tools or training.
