Cuddington | Buckinghamshire

Women’s Institute

The W.I. meets in the Playing Fields Clubhouse on the second Tuesday of each month at 2.30pm.

We are a small but active and very friendly W.I.  The first half hour or so of each meeting comes under the heading "business".  This covers minutes, looking at the monthly Bucks NFWI magazine which gives information on the many and varied activities both in Bucks and Nationally, and a general exchange of info that affects our members.

This is followed by our speaker, chosen by our committee to entertain us in all kinds of different ways. (See  calendar for speakers.)

Finally we all have tea and biscuits (at Christmas time a lot more than biscuits!) and we usually go home around 5 o'clock.

We are always looking for new members to join us, which can be arranged at any time of year although the normal subscription goes from January to December.

In addition if anyone would like to come and join us for one meeting, perhaps they have an interest in a particular speaker for example, this can be arranged for a small fee which we will pass on to charity.

Meeting on Tuesday 13th June

A most enjoyable afternoon with an extremely interesting speaker Keith Janz.  He was an artist when he was young and had a dreadful accident which caused him to lose the use of  his limbs.  Instead of letting it defeat him he studied Foot and Mouth painting, with a lot of help from Stoke Mandeville Hospital.  He and his wife  brought along some of his paintings which were absolutely beautiful.  As well as W.I. members we were very pleased to be joined by several guests, ladies and gentlemen ( ! ) who all joined us for tea and biscuits afterwards! 

W.I. Stall at Cuddington Fete on 8th July

Once again we will be holding our cake stall, and would be most grateful if anyone could help by contributing home made cakes, biscuits etc. which should then be delivered to the Bernard Hall from 11.30 onwards.  (Please display a note with any items that contain nuts.)

Many thanks in advance!

Young Carers Bucks

The W.I. thanks its members, their families and our friends in the village for supporting the Copper Collection for Young Carers Bucks. 

The collection started in 2007 and we make a donation each year, usually in  November, and the total raised up to November 2014 was £1,785.

Young Carers Bucks has a team of professionals and helpers who support children.  These children have, for various reasons, taken on the responsibility for their families.  Some of the children are as young as 5 or 6 years old.  All the children are given practical and social support.

Our W.I. are glad to be of some help.
