Our Poppy Display 2018

This magnificent commemorative display was at St.Peter's Church from Friday 2nd November until Sunday 18th November.

The horse with the purple poppies  is in honour of the many creatures that contributed to the war effort and also suffered. Thank you very much for supporting our appeal for poppies.  

Betty's Inspirational Quilt

Betty Davies and members of Greet WI have put in hours of work to make this beautiful quilt. It was presented to the family of Hollie Gazzard and will be raffled to raise funds for The Hollie Gazzard Trust. 

Crafty WI members - July 2018

Four of our WI members  demonstrated crafts at our July monthly meeting. Jane Badger and Betty Taylor both had splendid patchwork displays together with samples of the techniques used. Mary Cull displayed her crochet work and managed to entice many members to try their hand, and Kate Watson had members painting on tissue paper with surprisingly good results. Clearly they had all put in lots of preparation and a good time was had by everyone.

Kate used the paintings created to produce some greetings cards as seen below:

A big ‘kiss' from Greet WI

The Greet WI walking group know only too well that getting over stiles can be a real challenge, so when an opportunity arose to sponsor a new kissing gate they jumped at the chance. A series of small fundraising events paid for this new gate on the Gloucestershire Way above Greet. 
The Winchcombe Walkers are Welcome group came up with the idea for a ‘Donate a gate’ scheme and the Cotswold Voluntary Wardens installed the 10 sponsored gates, making access to the countryside easier for everyone. 

This is a great example of how voluntary groups can work together to make a big difference. 
“Now, who’s going to kiss me as I go through the gate?”.
