Illston-on-the-Hill WI

We started the year with a bit of exercise (not too much), we had an evening of ten pin bowling. 

This was organised by Hazel in the village hall and was lots of fun, you just cannot believe where the balls go when you send them down to the pins in a straight line! Couldn’t be operator failure could it? We enjoyed getting together again after the festive season and had the opportunity to catch up over delightful refreshments.

We welcomed Alison Rocket in February. Canadian born Alison spent a great deal of time in Uganda where she came across jewellery made by Acholi women. They were forced to flee their homes in Northern Uganda due to atrocities committed against them in a 20-year long war. The women are mainly single mothers 
and they work crushing stones in a quarry earning barely enough to feed and clothe their families, leaving nothing for school fees.
