Groups

In addition to the eleven core WI Monthly Meetings we hold each year,  we have a number of extra groups who meet regularly.  All groups have been created by and are run by members for members.

To participate in one or more of the following groups you need to be a full member of Kirby Hill WI.

Please note as some groups meet in members houses numbers are restricted.

If you have an idea for a group and are wondering if others might be interested, propose it at a meeting and let’s see who is interested.

 

Book Club

Book Club meets monthly in a members home.  Meetings are held during the day and books are provided by Boroughbridge Library.  At each meeting the following month’s meeting date is agreed.  For more information contact kirbyhillwi@gmail.com

Pudding Club

Pudding Club is one of the four food related groups that meets each month (we like our food!).

Pudding Club meets monthly in a member’s home at 7.30 pm in the evening.  Two people prepare starters and two prepare desserts (i.e. there are four small courses),  members provide all food, wine and soft drinks on an informal rota basis.  Pudding Club has a very relaxed format, anything goes food wise (Angel Delight has even appeared as an emergency dessert).   It is a chance to try out new recipes or open a packet of shop bought goods, it really doesn’t matter.  What does matter is the good conversation and friendship.

We are currently at full capacity, however if you are interested in joining should a space become free contact kirbyhillwi@gmail.com or talk to a member of the committee.

 

Monthly coffee and cake, lunch and dinner clubs

Each month there are three extra opportunities to meet other members informally over a bite to eat.

Coffee and cake: Dates and times of the meets are announced at our WI Monthly meeting, in the past the group has met at B.E.A.N Vintage, Listers Farm Shop  and other coffee shops.  Numbers are not restricted and lifts can be arranged with other members. Members pay for their own food and drink.

Lunch and dinner clubs:  Each month boards will be circulated at our WI Monthly meeting indicating where and when the lunch/dinner clubs will be meeting.  If you are interested sign your name and a table booking will be made, it is that simple.  You only need to attend the meals you want to attend. Numbers are not restricted and again lifts can be arranged with other members. Members pay for their own food and drink.

 

Knitting Club

Knit Club meets monthly in a members home. Meetings are held in the evening @ 7.30 pm.  This group was created following a request from one member who was an absolute beginner and wanted to learn to knit, a small numbers of experienced knitters stepped forward to help and then others who wanted to reactivate their skills came along.  The format of each meeting changes, sometimes people bring along their own knitting projects, other months we decide to join together to knit with purpose.  For example we produced knitted bunting for our summer get together, a poppy wreath and poppies to commemorate Remembrance Day and knitted small christmas trees for the Boroughbridge Christmas Tree Festival.   Sometimes we knit and drink wine, sometimes we stick to water.  We have capacity to add a few more knitters of any ability so if you are interested email kirbyhillwi@gmail.com.

 

Film Club

Film Club is now up and running.  This is a very informal arrangement aimed at providing company for those interested in visiting local cinemas.  Each month a list of upcoming films will be circulated – anyone interested in seeing  a film can propose a date and time and details will be posted to our website and circulated amongst members who have registered an interest in being kept informed.

Members then contact the proposer/organiser and things go from there.

If this is something that interests you contact Jane at kirbyhillwi@gmail.com  or see any member of the committee.

 

Walking Group

Commencing November 2016 we will be launching a walking group.  Sandra Delf has volunteered to organise the first walks.  If you are interested come along to the next meeting on 1 November 2016 to find out more.
