NEWTON HARCOURT WI
Newton Harcourt WI meets in the Reading Room, in the village, at 7.30.pm on the second Tuesday of the month.
If you are looking for excellence in any craft, hobby or domestic skill, including gardening, you will find it within the remit of the WI.
The WI is a nation wide organisation with a membership of creative, talented ladies who are eager to pass on their skills. There is a WI College, Denman College in Oxfordshire, which offers week long/weekend courses in a multitude of subjects.
Locally, we have a monthly meeting for 11 months of the year. Our holiday month is July. We have a variety of speakers, demonstrations, power point presentations and practical craft evenings. We enjoy quizzes and convivial company. There are theatre trips, coach outings to places of interest and, at intervals, visits to recommended restaurants for a pleasant meal and an enjoyable time. We also engage in activities with other WIs throughout Leicestershire and Rutland where larger projects can be tackled or more expensive speakers can be engaged.
