DITCHINGHAM W.I.

At our W.I. meeting this month, held at The Village Hall, Ditchingham on 14th November, we had an insight by John Vigar on Murder, Sex and Mayhem in English Churches.

Our members thoroughly enjoyed the talk with much laughter as John took us through sitting in old churches while soaking up the peaceful atmosphere our eyes sometimes alight on images or stories that are far more violent! Medieval wall paintings depicting the martyrdom of the saints; memorials and carvings showing violent murders, accidents and bizarre events and, surprisingly, blatantly sexual images warning us against carnal lust.
This fascinating and often amusing lecture opens our eyes to the wealth of detail to be found in our medieval churches and you will never look at them in the same way again.

John was our last speaker for 2018, all our members have enjoyed a wonderful year celebrating 100 years of Ditchingham WI which included outings, celebration meals and an excellent all-round year’s programme. 

Our next meeting is on 12th December. This will be our Christmas Lunch.

Our meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at Ditchingham Village Hall at 2.30pm.  We are a fun group of ladies, who like a laugh & are very friendly.  Why don’t you come & give us a try if you are feeling lonely?  It’s better than a tonic
