Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

As part of Adderbury’s Jubilee celebrations we were asked to organise a festive tea for the Senior Citizens of the village. This took place outside the Coach and Horses pub and invaluable help was given by Tony, the landlord, who provided a room where we could do the preparation. China and the vital urn were kindly loaned by the PTA of Christopher Rawlins CE Primary School. Members put together individual boxes, each with sandwiches, little iced cakes, a biscuit and a small commemorative medallion. Tables were decorated with Union flags, tea and coffee were served, the sun shone, we and our guests sang the National Anthem. It was an afternoon to remember.

 

Treasures at our Annual Meeting

After our Annual Meeting and our March meeting we enjoyed being introduced to personal treasures that belonged to eleven different members. These included a precious box made by the owner’s grandfather for her mother, an Edwardian teddy bear loved by four generations, a diary kept by the owner’s mother, a much played with monkey glove puppet and Rudolph Nureyev’s autograph which reminded its owner of his story and the day she finally met him.

Current Membership Year 2022-23

Adderbury WI’s 2022 membership year starts in April. Our Committee has put together an interesting and varied programme for our members for the coming 12 months and information about this can be found in the Calendar section of this website. Following the relaxation of Covid restrictions we are once again meeting face-to-face at the Institute. We still try to ensure adequate ventilation and everyone is welcome to make their own decision about wearing a mask. We would be very happy to welcome new members to our branch.
