What to expect at a Devizes Evening WI meeting

What happens at the meeting

If you have never been to a WI meeting, here is what you can expect: Our evening starts with a welcome from the President followed most months by our guest speaker.

Recently there have been a wide variety of topics ranging from Walking to the South Pole to Belly dancing. We also have cookery and flower demonstrations. Then there is a chance to natter to each other over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits. The secretary then goes through the correspondence and forthcoming events and there are reports from our Skittles team, lunch, book, garden and whist clubs.

No evening would be complete without Any Other Business followed by our raffle.
