Tarvin W.I's first meeting of 2016 took place on Wednesday 27 January at 7.30pm and was duly opened by President, Irene Wilkinson, who welcomed everyone and wished them all Happy New Year before continuing with this month's business.


Tarvin Christmas Market

Due to the weather preventing the Tarvin Christmas Market taking place on the High Street the event was moved at short notice to St Andrew's Church. The atmosphere in the Church was festive, the evening was well supported by Tarvin residents and Tarvin W.I held a Tombola Stall and enjoyed a very successful evening. Irene thanked everyone again who gave their support.













Christmas Lunch at Willington Hall.

The Christmas lunch at the splendid country house Willington Hall was a lovely event. It was well attended by the majority of members who thoroughly enjoyed themselves. After lunch the Committee performed a surprise Pantomime which was received with much laughter.


'The Girls' Musical at the Lyric Theatre at The Lowry

A much anticipated outing to the Lowry took place this month. Tarvin W.I members and friends and members from local groups filled a coach which picked us up outside St. Andrew's Church. On arrival, we quickly dispersed to take advantage of the time allowed before going to the theatre.

Some went to the Imperial War Museum, some went to the Lowry Exhibition, and some went shopping. After lunch we took our seats to watch 'The Girl's', a new musical by Tim Firth and Gary Barlow. Those of us who were there were not disappointed. It was hilarious. A wonderful script full of one liners, peppered with music, a story line both happy and sad. We laughed, we cried, we whooped and we applauded. A fabulous day out and an exciting start to the WI year.

Tarvin Village Quiz

Irene thanked members who took part in Tarvin Village quiz. Unfortunately, we were not successful on this occasion. We enjoy taking part which is the main thing.

Coffee Morning at the President's House

A Coffee Morning took place on Friday morning 29 01.2016 at Irene's house. There was a raffle and bring and buy Stall and variety of lovely cakes. It was a very well supported event.


"Fiji" The way the world should be. A look at a tropical paradise — or is it? Speaker Sue Hardacre

Not many of us can say we have spent a few years living in Fiji like Sue Hardacre who gave us a peep into her personal journey in Fiji when she joined us at this month's meeting. She told us that she went out to Fiji with her husband who was offered an opportunity of employment in Suva, the capital of Viti Levu which is one of two larger islands. Fiji is 15' south of the Equator and is a tropical paradise consisting of over 300 small islands. It is mountainous and has many beautiful beaches. Sue says she found it is a complex place with a fascinating history and that it has not been without political conflict over the years. Even today there can be racial tension between the Fijians and the Indo-Fijians. We all thoroughly enjoyed her slides that showed Fiji through her eyes. Sue clearly enjoyed living there. Vote of thanks was given by Nancy Williams.

Tea or Coffee and biscuits are always welcome at the end of the meeting giving members a chance to make arrangements and chat with old friends and new. The meeting was formally closed by the President.


The date of the next meeting will be Wednesday 24 February at 7.30 pm in the Edna Rose Room, Tarvin Community Centre where new members and visitors are always welcome to come and join us.

The Speaker is former Lord May of Chester, Jill Houlbrook — My Year as Lord Mayer
