WI LogoKirk & Green Hammerton WI meets every 2nd Tuesday.

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.

Our Poem

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.
