In August we had our summer outing and this year we went to Highclere Castle. Twenty one WI members and four guests from Broad Hinton’s ‘Ridgeway Ladies’ travelled by coach to Highclere in Hampshire, famous now for being the setting for the filming of Downton Abbey.
We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed exploring the house and gardens. We had an excellent lunch and many of us managed to fit in an ice cream and/or cream tea! There was a lot of chat sitting in beautiful surroundings in the sunshine, a really enjoyable day.
Our next meeting will be at 7.30pm on 17th September and we will be back in Broad Town Village hall. It is a members evening when we will be reviewing good books, lovely places to visit, good places to eat etc. New members are always welcome. Call Jane on 01793 731105 for more information.
