Cookridge Crumpets WI is one of our newest WI’s as it has only been open since 2011, but the members are still just as active as an established WI. Even though they are a new WI they vary in age and interests and are all still young at heart! During their first year of being an open WI they had events such as Zumba, wine tasting, a talk on astrology and at Christmas they had wreath decorating and carol singing. This year so far they have had activities which have included a talk on Bees and Honey, a faith supper and an archery evening where members practiced their skills using a bow and arrow! In the summer they have a cake stall at Holy Trinity C of E school summer fair. As well as being popular with their current 53 members they also have a large fan base online with their Twitter account @CookridgeWI and their Facebook page.
