SEPTEMBER 29TH 2018 – THE WORLDS BIGGEST COFFEE MORNING
My grateful thanks to all concerned for their help, support and custom which enabled us to donate the amazing total of £1020.60 to Macmillan, FAB-U-LOUS

OCTOBER 11TH 2018 – STAR GAZE THE SKY AT NIGHT
Derek Langley used the big hall screen to take us on a Sky at Night journey, visiting all the planets of the solar system over a journey time of 52 years. A revelation to us all to see the size and distance of them all. Unfortunately, the cloudy skies prevented us from a hands on experience, but at least now we know where to look and what to see. The tea girls Val and Rosemary provided us with delicious, much needed refreshments after such a long journey. Thank you everyone for a lovely evening.

Another busy October in the life of Pakenham WI. My thanks to all my wonderful committee and members who work so tirelessly to make our institute such a success, and pleasure to be part of. As one new member said to me recently, I never realised being a WI member could be so busy and such fun.
