Pilates Classes at WVH???


Christina our lovely speaker on Pilates from earlier this month would be happy to run a class in Whitley Village Hall if there is enough interest.

Several people have spoken to Chris about learning Pilates following the meeting so Sally has spoken to Christina about the possibility. Let Sally know if you are interested.

Lancashire Night – 26th October 2018

Whitley WI, including guests both male and female, had a wonderful evening celebrating all that is Lancashire. Pat Sharp made us a tasty Hotpot, Joan Blackshaw gave us a quiz to test our knowledge of Lancashire, and Rob Mason entertained us with his northern humour and songs. At the end of the evening, there were many delighted winners of raffle prizes that had been sourced by Dorothy Thompson. A well organised and enjoyable event – many thanks to the committee and helpers.

Cheshire Craft Day

Two of our Craft Club members, Annette Minor and Jean Waite, enjoyed a productive ‘Christmas Craft’ Day organised by Cheshire Federation. From the 5 workshops on offer we both choose to make a Christmas Card using the Bayeux stitch. We learned new skills, enjoyed looking at the items made in the other workshops, and came away with (almost) completed cards – after all that work they may end up framed in our own ‘Christmas Decorations boxes’!
The pictures show the tutor’s card and our own, nearly completed work and also some of the items made in the other workshops.

Craft Group – Latest news

Our craft ladies have been particularly busy over the last two months.  At our September meeting we completed the task of making a gift for all our ladies towards the Christmas Party.

In October, if we had a project ‘on the go’ we brought it along – Dorothy framed a small embroidery.  Sue Lynch was busy knitting but did bring along her tapestry which she had finished and upholstered as a footstool. Melanie had seen an idea for polystyrene Christmas balls decorated with Christmassy fabric – you can see the splendid result in the photograph. Jane was kept busy with her tapestry of a cat enjoying his afternoon catnap in his basket.

The rest of us made a knitted bunny – the idea came from Chris Spittle – what fun – all had their own characteristic and one glorious white bunny (Beryl) trimmed in turquoise will be on sale to the highest bidder at our next meeting.

Lastly a big thank you to everyone who has brought along lavender for drying or larch cones which have been sprayed gold and silver to help with the Christmas Party table decorations that we shall be making during our November gathering on Wednesday 21st.


It was…..one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready…..so go cat go!

Whitley WI Culture Club put on their virtual Blue Suede Shoes and headed to The Northwich Memorial Court, to enjoy an evening at this modern very local theatre. Performed by the very talented Knutsford Musical Theatre, led by Musical Director Michael Scott.






The story (set in the 1950’s) involves a young man called Chad who comes to a small American Town to get his motor bike fixed and finds love. Likewise many of the other towns-folk find love as well.

The Music revolved around Elvis Classics such as “Love me Tender”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, and the “Hawaiian Wedding Song”,

This production made a perfectly lighted-hearted but happy way to spend an evening.
