Things to Do

Dorset County WI organise events throughout the year and these are advertised to members at the meetings and by email.

Enquire at the monthly meeting for details of the walking group, lunch club, book clubs and other activities.  

WeyBay’s lunch club met at The Turk’s Head Inn, Chickerell for their monthly get together.  The Turk’s Head is off the beaten track in the heart of Chickerell village. It has a reputation for good quality pub food and has become a popular venue for those in the know.  

An imaginative choice for the WeyBay ladies.  A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in good company. 

Speak to the committee if you would like to have details of the lunch group's plans.

The Fishnets Book Club have just finished The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne.  It is the same author who wrote The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas - quite different but an excellent read. It is a story starting in Ireland in 1945 of a 16-year-old pregnant girl cast out from her family.  The baby is adopted, and the book follows mother and baby through their separate lives in Ireland to 2015.   An epic read and a lesson on Ireland’s social history.   Every one of the Fishnets loved it - it rarely happens!  Give yourself time - it is a long read!

At the moment they are reading Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus. This has good reviews and so far, it’s a thumbs up!

Fishnets have just been to Dorchester to see their Community Play Spinning the Moon. An immersive performance and our own Fishnet’s member Cherry Bush was in the cast. And they have also been to the cinema to see The Adventures of Harold Fry - they read the book a while ago and the film was just as good. On at the moment (May ).  

If you would like to join in with these WeyBay groups, please speak to a committee member or send an email.  WeyBay is very pleased for any member to set up a group - just let the committee know your ideas.
