We enjoy being part of the wider WI experience from making jam to major political statements and affecting public opinion.
Most meetings are held in Kirk Hammerton – but around 4 times a year Green Hammerton Village Hall is used.
Membership is £37.50 per annum – with occasional guests being charged £4 each visit.
New members are very welcome – please contact Ann Johnson or Christine Bonnett (details below) for more information.
We have speakers with a wide range of topics each month plus occasional outings and cultural experiences. To view our 2017 calendar of events follow the link below.
At our last meeting Patrick Boucher gave us a very interesting talk about the Yorkshire Air Ambulance it’s origin and the continuous service to the people of Yorkshire. Patrick explained that the colour of the helicopters (yellow) came about because of sponsorship from the AA. Also to note is that if you are in need of help and a helicopter arrives from Nostel Priory then you will have the added benefit of a doctor on board, however should the helicopter arrive from Topcliffe you will get a cameraman. Which would you prefer if very injured, although you may not be conscious to worry about it. Many thanks to Patrick and please continue to give when you can as you never know when you may be in need of help.
Our next WI meeting will be on Tuesday October 10th at 7.30pm in the Village Hall, Green Hammerton when Susan Goss-Clements will tell us about ‘Coastal Country Cottages’. The competition is and interesting item beginning with the letter H. All welcome, please join us for a friendly sociable evening. Ann Johnson, President.

Some pictures of us having fun
If you’ve time, come cast an eye
over Kirk & Green Hammerton WI
There’s visits. trips & days out galore
Competitions, anniversaries and events by the score
So take a trip with us on days rainy & sunny
to events and attractions both serious & funny
If you’re not a member then do come along
and please don’t be put off by our song
Jerusalem’s our tradition, we sing it each time
some good, some ‘not so’ – it turns out just fine
Not just Jam & Jerusalem as some folk would think
Nor women with no clothes on, hid by a sink
But interesting talks and hands on too
and the hand of friendship – held out to you.
