Great Longstone Community Website

Saturday, February 16


Gt Longstone WI meets on the first Wednesday of each month (except for January and August) in the Village Hall in Great Longstone. Our meetings start at 7.30pm  with some business and then we are generally entertained by a speaker on a variety of topics or a demonstration. There is time after the talk for a cup of tea/coffee, a look at the trading stall, a vote for your favourite competition entry or a chat with other members.

During 2018, we met with other WIs at Group Meetings and Council Meetings, held a Coffee Morning in aid of two local charities, organised a Sales Stall in Bakewell and enjoyed several meals out and various other outings.  Members of the Walking Group have also been out each month enjoying rambles in the hills and dales.  In the Summer several members exhibited crafts, flowers and cookery at the Bakewell Event.

Our programme for 2016 is as follows:

January 21st New Years Lunch
February 7th Touring with Teenagers
March 7th Treasures from a suitcase
April 5th Learn how to sleep well
May 2 AGM & Discussion of Resolutions and Quiz
