Haughley WI has been a part of the lives of Haughley women since 1925 and we kept in touch
during covid restrictions by phone, newsletters, socially-distanced doorstep visits and zoom
technology.
We expect to resume normal activities from July 2021 with a socially distanced fish and chip
supper for current Members and as always New members are always welcome. The 2021
annual subscription fee has been reduced to £33, inclusive of required contributions towards
national and regional WI resources and events. Locally, the annual fee funds monthly social
meetings, over light refreshments, with guest speakers. In addition, there are organised trips
out and an open invitation to our regular lunch club, which meets in various local pubs
To give you an idea of the breadth of topics covered by speakers, we have welcomed a
falconer with hand-reared birds of prey, illustrated talks on historical events and characters,
an assistance dog with her handler, arts and crafts demonstrations, information events about
feminine health and welfare issues and hosted open events featuring well-known guests: two
recent speakers were the antiques show and antiques road trip auctioneer Elizabeth Talbot
and Suffolk Dialect expert, Charlie Haylock, who has already confirmed that he will return to
us next year, to share memories and experiences gained whilst supporting actors who starred
in the acclaimed film about the “Suffolk-Hoo story”: The Dig.
Haughley WI trips out are as diverse as our speakers and provided as discretionary extras.
Examples of past trips include: Cambridge Botanic Gardens with optional a lunch; A tour of
Sizewell power station with time on the beach, a Christmas Shopping in Norwich, an exclusive
visit to an Essex Bonsai Tree Specialist, Fish’n’Chips supper after an evening stroll on Shotley
Peninsula, tours and sampling at local factories, discounted seats at Wolsey Theatre’s
Rock’n’Roll Panto.
We have a lot to offer local women, but we understand that they may wish try us out first, so
we always offer a free taster session to prospective members and encourage them to attend
and pay for a few “one-off” sessions, before making a long-term commitment.
