Greys WI

Women's Institute - Greys


AS we gathered for our Christmas party, the last meeting of 2016, we were royally entertained by a choir from Peppard Primary School, made up of pupils from years 5 and 6, Springwood class.

The 23 children were brought to Greys village hall by two teachers, including Miss Valentine, who trains the choir, and Bill, who drove their minibus.

They sang a selection of carols, old and new, in beautiful harmony, delighting their audience. Their next appearance was to be at the Christingle service at All Saints’ Church in Peppard.

The party was enjoyably relaxing, with delicious food and the traditional but baffling quiz. Our next meeting will be at Greys village hall on January 18 at 2.30pm.

The speaker will be the ever-popular and eminent local historian Elizabeth Hazeldine, who will be talking about the Henley traders of the 19th century, in her words, “From Joshua Watts drapers to Charles Henry Smith’s paper bag factory”. It sounds very intriguing. Visitors will be welcome.

The knit and natter club will meet on January 6 and the lunch club on January 13, probably at the Catherine Wheel pub in Henley. Please check with a committee member for confirmation.

Greys WI sends everyone our wishes for a happy and peaceful New Year.
