W.I. Tea Party W.I. Tea Party

The next W.I. Tea Party is on the 16th September . Come and join us from 2pm till 4pm for Tea, Coffee and Cake £1.50.  All profits to Suffolk Carers




World's Biggest Coffee Morning
Cake taste better together!

We are hoping to hold our 25th annual coffee morning in aid of Macmillan. Everyone has been so supportive in past years and we hope you'll be again. Last year was a record breaking year for Coffee Morning with £27 million being raised, so there's never been a better excuse for cake or to enable us to raise even more vital funds to carry on this much needed help. Our event is on :

Friday 30th September 2016
in the W.I. Hall, Wickhambrook
from 9.00am to Noon.

The total raised nationally last year was £27 million which helped fund Macmillan nurses, provide a lifeline of listeners and treatments not routinely available on the NHS amongst so many other vital services. We want to help, so please come and have a cup of coffee (or tea) and a chat in an excellent cause and support us once more. A display of gifts for Christmas from "CHOCOHOLICS" will also be present at this event with all profits from orders and sales going to Macmillan. Any donations of raffle prizes would be much appreciated. Thank You! For further information contact Mrs Val Orange 01440820161 or valerie@orange11.fsnet.co.uk

They're back!! In Wickhambrook's MSC! On Friday 14th October.
The Spinning Wheel Theatre Company with their latest production.

This year Written and Directed by their own Amy Willie and Designed by Becca Gibbs it's:

CASANOVA

Spinning Wheel Theatre - Casanova at Wickhambrook Memorial Social Centre on Friday 14th October

Based on the memoirs of history's most notorious lover, this fast-paced, furiously funny production charts the legendary lothario's exploits across Europe. From his early childhood school days, to his loves, his losses, and his scandalous misadventures.

This Autumn, Spinning Wheel Theatre's thrilling new play hits the road across East Anglia. A joyous romp through the sexual escapades and madcap situations in the perilous and exhausting life of Giacomo Casanova, featuring an ornate tapestry of ludicrous characters, acting out their absurd existences across Europe, making this the perfect antidote to any gloomy October evening!  This production contains scenes of a sexual nature, and is suitable for ages 14+  Tickets - £9.50 and £7.50. Available from www.spinningwheeltheatre.com
