The Thornton le Dale branch of the WI was established in 1924 and has met regularly since that date. We are pleased to say that today, our branch continues to thrive and grow, with an active programme of activities (you can read our 2017 report by clicking here or on the link below.

Our meetings have been well attended with a with range of subjects to interest members. We have enjoyed a lunch at Cedar Barn and, in August, a trip to see the Esk Valley Theatre production followed by supper at The Tea Cosy cafe at Ellerburn. Our outing, in June, saw us enjoying a concert at Scarborough Spa followed by lunch. Some of our members also enjoyed helping Snainton WI to celebrate their centenary at an evening concert and an afternoon tea at Hackness Grange. 

 

 Throughout the year, members have been knitting and crocheting poppies to be dispayed on the village green for Remembrance Day. It is planned to have a large display to commemorate the centenary of the end of WW1.

 

In May, the Tour de Yorkshire gave us the opportunity to hold a fund raising tombola - our charity will be decided by members later in the year. 

 

As Autumn approaches, we are looking forward to our Harvest Auction and supper and a Christmas lunch. 


Our first walk of the year was led by Wendy - we kept this quite local, walking up to Dalby via Ellerburn. Our planned walk for early March was cancelled, due to the snow but, in true WI style, the walkers met for coffee and chat at Sue's house. The planned walk, to Goathland, will take place later in the year. We have taken two more walks in the evening; the first being around the outer reaches of Thornton Dale and the second to see the 'Man on the Moors' near Castleton. 

 

There is lots more to look forward to during the year - vistors are always welcome. Posters detailing the next meeting details are displayed in the Village Hall and outside The New Inn. Our members have also been planning our programme for 2019 - lots more to enjoy!
