 We are still collecting Happy Bags, a scheme where our unwanted handbags are given to vulnerable women and more are needed please, along with toiletries if possible. We have a monthly coffee morning at 10.30am at The Roastery in Quedgeley and our next one is coming up soon and all are welcome to come for […]

Our September meeting began on a sad note when we heard from Caroline Meek about another of our longest serving members, Myrtle Nash, who had recently passed away.  It was lovely to hear a short life history of Myrtle who had joined Quedgeley WI in the 1950s and had lived in the area all her life.  After […]

August to our WI members means the annual outing when we have a pleasant time going to various places around the area.  Previous outings have included a meal at Fromebridge Mill and a visit to the Elgar Museum in Worcester.  This year we will be visiting Westonbirt House and Garden with a tour of the […]

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. Although most of our monthly talks have been interesting a few members had questioned the […]

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. This year the Resolution was Mental Health Matters and after a brief summary of the details we voted in favour. Some of the bags that were […]

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. Unfortunately our entry for the GFWI skittles competition was too late to be entered in the draw but we hope to organise a skittles evening later, to be held at […]

There were so many members at our March meeting that we had to put out extra chairs which was due to the attendance of another new member and two visitors and we look forward to having to put out more chairs in the future! It was a sombre start to the meeting when we heard […]

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 […]
