My name is Margaret Dicken and I am President of the WI elected in March of this year. I have lived in the village for a number of years and before retiring was a Teaching Assistant at Allington with Sedgebrook Primary School, consequently my face may look familiar.
We at Allington WI are a group of ladies of differing ages, backgrounds and interests. Our meetings are held at the Village Hall on the first Wednesday of each month, starting at 7.30pm for 7.45pm and finishing about 9.45pm, apart from January when no meeting is held. You probably would recognise many of us as we are to be seen supporting events in the Village and true to WI tradition our cakes are much sought after!
Our programme varies from hands on evenings to talks from guest speakers and demonstrations. Details of our current programme are displayed in the Village Shop, the Village Hall, the Village Notice Board and Allington Gardens. Our visitor’s fee is £3.50 and you would be very welcome, so why not give us a try, you never know you might enjoy yourself!
If you would like further information please contact any committee member.We look forward to seeing you.
