WOMENS INSTITUTE Priest Hutton & Borwick WI

Meet in Memorial Hall every second Tuesday of the month at 7.30 pm.

New members always welcome.


The W.I. is holding another Archives Coffee morning in the Memorial Hall from 10am to noon. This is an opportunity for villagers old and new from Borwick and Priest Hutton, and anyone else who is interested, to come along and view the wonderful archive material put together by June Haythornthwaite, which covers life in the two villages over the past 70 years. In particular there are many photographs of the village school and its pupils, the building of the present Memorial Hall and a wonderful scrapbook which was made by June and Joan Richardson to celebrate the W.I’s 80th birthday in 2001. As this is the year we commemorate 100 years since the start of the 1st World War, all donations from the refreshments are in aid of the British Legion.

There will be an opportunity on that morning to pre-order a DVD copy of the I.T.V. television programme made some years ago about the building of the new Memorial Hall. This has been kindly transferred from a video format by Steve Le Cheminant. The cost per copy is £5 and all proceeds are being forwarded to the British Legion.


The W.I will hold its A.G.M.



Why not come along and see what the W.I. has to offer?

New members are always welcome.

Please contact Jane Taylor on 730084 for further details or turn up at the meeting.
