Aughton WI Events



Bowling Discontinued

The sun is out, the grass is mowed and the bowling balls are polished.  With the clanking of woods, many oohs and aahs and a great deal of laughter a fun afternoon begins.  Marilyn Porter (President) says" We all enjoy the afternoon so much.  We are in the fresh air, getting some exercise and although we play with enthusiasm our main aim is to have fun!  All new members at our WI would receive a warm welcome if they chose to join us."

A tour of the beautiful Browsholme Hall after a visit to Barton Grange was enjoyed by a group of our members.

Before the tour, our members had a lovely lunch at Browsholme which complemented the great day out.

The Lancashire Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday 7th March at Southport Theatre. the event was very successful and well organised We had two very interesting speakers - Beth Tweddle (Olympic Gymnast) and Helen Sharman (First British Female Astronaut) which added to the success of the day.  The photograph shows us all wrapped up for a winters day when in fact the weather was dry, sunny and fairly mild!


Chester Tour.  A coach took us to Chester where we had a guided tour around Chester Cathedral.  We all felt that although we had visited the cathedral before, the guided tour gave us a much more informed history of the cathedral.  Lunch was on a river boat.  A lovely three course meal provided by The Mill House Hotel.  A short walk along the canal after lunch completed the day perfectly!
