Crosspool WI meeting on Monday

The next Crosspool Women’s Institute meeting takes place on Monday 16 April at St Columba’s Church from 7-9pm. All ladies are welcome – bring £4.50 as there’s wine and nibbles.

Last month Julia Connelly from Crosspool’s Craft Angels explained on Radio Sheffield why the group has been set up: “In Crosspool there is a diverse range of ages, and a WI is something that can bring women together, especially young mums whose children have gone to school. A lot of our population also include professional people who have come to Sheffield for university and then stayed with no family living nearby.”

If you want to find out more then you can turn up on Monday or get in touch on 0114 266 7339 07894 387406.

Crosspool WI branch meeting on Monday

The first full branch meeting of the Crosspool Women’s Institute (WI) will take place on Monday 19 March at St Columba’s church from 7-9pm.

Speaking on BBC Radio Sheffield this morning, Julia Connelly from Crosspool’s Craft Angels explained why the group has been set up: “In Crosspool there is a diverse range of ages, and a WI is something that can bring women together, especially young mums whose children have gone to school. A lot of our population also include professional people who have come to Sheffield for university and then stayed with no family living nearby.

“In the current economic climate, people are going back to traditional crafts and growing their own vegetables. Make-do-and-mend, vintage and shabby chic are all back in fashion. The traditional crafts have skipped a generation. A lot of women don’t do baking any more and people want to learn to knit.”

So far there are 34 people interested in joining the group. If you want to find out more then you can turn up on Monday or get in touch with Craft Angels via:

E-mail: crosspoolwi@live.co.uk
Telelephone: Julia Connelly (President) 07894 387406 or Liz Manson (Secretary) 07403 281609

For the next seven days you’ll be able to listen again to the interview on Radio Sheffield on iPlayer. The Crosspool WI piece starts around 1.5 hours in.

Crosspool WI meetings are scheduled for the third Monday of the month at St Columba’s (7-9pm) and the fourth Monday of the month at Stephen Hill Church (1-3pm), except August.
