Join local WI groups in Mental Health Day: Building Communities that Care
Dunkerton WI met on Tuesday, 12th April at Tunley Recreation Centre. Following a particularly enthusiastic rendition of ‘Jerusalem’, guests were welcomed and apologies received.
Items discussed in the business included news of a successful visit to Oakham Treasures, a sunny walk around Freshford, followed by a pub lunch, tree planting for the Platinum Jubilee in Tunley recreation field and great news that our darts team had been successful in their first match!
Members were given details of forthcoming events, including a coach trip to Kew Gardens in June, the WI resolution for 2022 and the event organised by the Camdyke group of WIs entitled ‘Mental Health Day – building communities that care’, which will be held at Beacon Hall in Peasedown St John on Saturday, 14th May from 10am – 2pm. This will be a free event open to everyone who would like to attend. It is especially aimed at showcasing all the resources and organizations available in B&NES designed to help alleviate loneliness and isolation locally.
With the business over, we were introduced to Tracey Quinn. Following an inspiring talk of the history of her life journey to Peasedown, Tracey told us about the workshops she has developed at the Hive and in her Glass Garden Studio, teaching a variety of techniques using glass. Her work is lovely, producing beautiful pieces which inspired many members to sign up for at least one of her classes.
Tracey brought along some of her work which was available for sale over tea, coffee and Easter treats following the closure of the meeting.
The next meeting is on Tuesday, 10th May at Tunley Recreation Centre. After discussing the resolutions we will be welcoming Sally Helvey from Bath talking about ‘Jane Austen in Bath’ and updating us on the Cleveland Pools project.
