HAPPY NEW YEAR PAKENHAM
A huge thank you to all involved, especially Andrea and her team for a delicious meal at our Annual Christmas dinner on December 13th 2018.

JANUARY 10TH 2019 – THE ANNUAL SOCIAL EVENING
A great fun social evening to start 2019, thank you everybody. The Tracy Spielberg Martin slide show of last year’s WI events was spectacular. I was truly honoured to present Tracy with Pakenham WI’s highest award for outstanding service the O.M.B.T.!!!! A huge vote of thanks to our quiz master for the evening John Speare, who produced a great quiz won by the Janet Osborne team, well done girls. The committee provided the drinks and nibbles and a good time was had by all.

FEBRUARY 20th 2019 – SHOPPING EVENING AT ST NICHOLAS HOSPICE SHOPS
We are delighted to accept a special invitation by the BSE branch of St Nicholas Hospice Shops for an exclusive evening shop at their Great Barton road emporium. Really special for me as I was the Retail and Marketing Manager who was part of the team who founded and set up the shops to fund the new hospice in the late 1990s.

We look forward to working with, and supporting all the village organisations to make 2019 very successful and special for our wonderful village.
