The WI no longer has the reputation of jam and Jerusalem and in Keevil we have a very active WI. Our programme for the next year has been put together and will be on the village website shortly, we have Darren Partridge coming to talk about his work as a small animal vet in September, Darren spoke a few years ago at a Keevil Society meeting and was very informative and entertaining.
We held our AGM on March 13th followed by members favourite poems, nearly all were amusing and we all enjoyed the evening. The next meeting on April is a talk on Wiltshire Air Ambulance, if you would like to join us in the village hall at 7.30pm you will be very welcome.
It is looking very springlike in the village and once again the snowdrops are are making their appearance. We celebrated Valentine’s Day one day early by having a Valentine Bake Off and foodie quiz for our February meeting, there were some amazing cakes and bakes to be sampled and a winner was chosen so congratulations to Pauline Bennet for her wonderful heart shaped lemon cake.
Our meeting in March is the AGM 7.30pm in the hall on March 13th.
Jan Maskrey, President

UPDATE: Download the list as a PDF so you can print and take it with you around the village and tick off the lovely Christmas windows! Keevil WI Advent Trail_updated 11th Dec
Thank you to everyone who has offered to decorate a window for our Advent Trail, I’m sure the village will look wonderful with 24 windows lit up to celebrate Christmas in Keevil. I will be sending a note to all participants with the details of dates etc. before the end of the month. I will also produce a list of where to find the windows for anyone wanting to following the trail.
During the village carol singing on Friday 21st December we will be able to see many of the windows already lit, please come along on the night and enjoy refreshments in the church at 6.45pm and soup provided by Keevil WI in the hall at 8.30pm. with carol singing in between.
Our January meeting will be held on Wednesday 9th January in the village hall. We are showing the film “Suffragette” and having a fish and chip supper.
