Smisby Village

Smisby WI Programme

 

 

2018 and 2019 Programme

All meetings at Smisby Village Hall unless stated otherwise.

Please note the meeting start time of 7:15 pm. So please arrive at 7 pm.

 

Advice to Tea Hostesses

We have 3 tea hostesses per month. Every effort is made to rotate this duty and to share responsibility within the group. If you are a tea hostess, it would be a great help if you arrive early to help set out. Also tea towels need to be laundered afterwards. £7 will be allocated for expenses to provide food plus milk.


Please note your date. If you are unable to do this one, please swap dates with someone or arrange a replacement in good time and notify the secretary of this.

 

Parking

Please park responsibly, without causing obstruction to driveways and the road. Where possible please car share.
