The evening was hot and the roads were empty, (something to do with football perhaps) when our July meeting began with the singing of Jerusalem followed by the usual business. The recent walk on Cleeve Hill and outing to Trioscope had been enjoyed by those who went and hopefully our August outing to Westonbirt will […]

It was a lovely warm evening for our June meeting. After the usual singing of Jerusalem we were reminded that the Happy Handbags collection was still on-going and more large bags and contents were requested to distribute to vulnerable women.

The month of May means Resolutions in the WI World when members choose and vote on important issues that they want to see the WIs National body campaign on.

The Village Hall was full for our April meeting when we welcomed members, visitors and our speaker. We started with the usual business and apologies.

There was a lovely smell of cooking at our February meeting which could only mean one thing – our 93rd Birthday Supper! Quedgeley WI was formed way back in 1925 but that was several years after the very first Women’s Institute which was started in Canada in 1897. The first WI in Great Britain was […]

It was a remarkably full Village Hall for the first meeting of the New Year considering it was a very foggy January evening . After the singing of Jerusalem we agreed that our American Supper in December had been every enjoyable where we had food, drink, carols and a quiz. One of our teams had […]

November means it’s time for our Annual General Meeting and this year it made a change to have a speaker as well as hearing the usual business.  Unfortunately our original speaker was unable to attend so we heard from Peter and Margaret Preece with Every Picture Tells a Story, a slide show of wildlife photographs taken […]
