There was a WI in Eckington which finished in or about 1934. However in 1938, there was a move to introduce a WI again. Following a meeting in September 1938, the Eckington WI was formed. So this year celebrates 80 years of continued WI in Eckington and we plan to celebrate this achievement. Our October meeting will be for members only. We will be having a 1930s themed party and hopefully our members will come suitably dressed!
However, we are having an Open Day on Saturday 8th September at Eckington Village Hall. This will be open to all villagers, family and friends. A programme of events for the day is being prepared and there are competitions for all villagers to enter. These include a cake competition, a craft competition, an art competition and a photography competition. Details of competitions and the programme of events can be found on our website 2018eckingtonopenday.weebly.com. 2018eckingtonopenday.weebly.com/
