Crafting Extravaganza Last Night!

Last night at Market Harborough WI, our President, Anne, presented us with a tempting array of Christmas craft ideas for us to try out over the festive season.



Anne talked us through how to make many of these items – from simple table decorations, to wreaths, paper ornaments and even elves on shelves and skis!    Most of the materials she had sourced very cheaply from discount and charity shops, such as Christmas baubles, lights and glass vases.   Other materials she had used included pine cones, wool and a surprising number of empty wine bottles!   This enabled her to make items at a fraction of the cost of shop bought items.

Here’s ones she made earlier!

Afterwards, we had lots of fun trying to recreate some of these craft items for ourselves, producing our own highly original range of wreaths, paper ornaments and some very stylised elves!


Look out for details of our Christmas Party in December.    Remember, because of the Christmas Bank Holiday, it is a week earlier than normal – on Wednesday, 19th December.

Christmas market at Chatsworth – selling out fast!

The sun may be shining and summer is here but you might like to book a place on this trip in November: it’s selling out fast and is understood to be a great day out and a second coach leaving from Hinckley:

Chatsworth Christmas Market1


Due to the popularity of the visit to Chatsworth and the Christmas Markets on Thursday, 30 November 2017, another coach has been arranged to leave near Hinckley library at 10.00am (to be confirmed) on the same day. The entry for the house for this trip will be at 3.45pm and will take approximately 1 hour to go round. Departure from Chatsworth will be about 5.15 pm. In view of the slightly longer journey from Hinckley to Chatsworth, the charge for the day’s outing will cost £31.

Please note that this coach is in addition to the coach that will leave WI House on 30 November at 9.30am.

The entry time to Chatsworth House for this coach is 3.00pm.

Please note that the coach from WI House is filling up very quickly. If you have already made a booking and would like to transfer to the Hinckley coach, please let us know as soon as possible.
