To coincide with the 70th Anniversary of Martinstown W.I and the National W.I incentive of " Healthy June", the committee organised a Village Circular Walk.
So, on the 21/06/18 at 9.45am we set off from the village green, dressed appropriately for the sunny warm day and country walking. We walked in shady areas, through the avenue of Christmas Trees, near Rosie's home. We walked over fields, shared with cattle and crops. We reached the the ancient Ridgeway, then pausing briefly to saviour the view and feel the refreshing breeze. Back in the village we had a comfort break at Lesley's and we met up with the non walkers, and collected the banners. We donned our hats, and continued our journey, marching along the road taking it in turns to carry the banners, singing "Jerusalem", accompanied by Lesley P's mobile phone music.
The walk was a great way to celebrate 70 years of the W.I in Martinstown. Let's all hope that the Martinstown W.I, will have many more eventful experiences.
Future W.I Events:
8th August 3pm @ Village Hall Garden (weather permitting).
"Garden Party 70th Birthday Celebration" : Tasty food and a glass of fizz, fun & games, "Prettiest Corsage" competition.
