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.

Our November meeting included our AGM. Ann Johnson stepped down as President after her 3 year term of office expired and she also came off committee. Sue Bowe has taken over as President for the coming year.  After the official procedures were carried out the presentation of trophies and prizes commenced.  Carol Wake received the Dorothy Lumley Cup for her kindness and assistance throughout the year and the competition that runs through the year was won by Sheila Hornby with Christine Bonnett and Gillian Mayes in joint second place.  The evening concluded with a quiz organised by Christine, a little bit different, but enjoyable and fun.   Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 12th December at Kirk Hammerton Village Hall starting at 7. 30 pm when Bob Hirst will talk about Bees and demonstrate how to make beeswax candles, the competition is something unusual beginning with the letter J.  Perhaps I will just present myself!.

All welcome to join us. 

Ann Johnson Ex 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.
