Watton Evening Events
Our members enjoy our regular meetings and speakers as well as the many other events that are scheduled throughout the year and of course 20/2021 had been difficult years for many. Moving forward our President and Committee members have worked very hard to keep our members connected. Here are some of the highlights from our meetings.
During our March meeting we met the lovely Logan who is a Hearing Dog. Isn't he gorgeous?

Some of our members enjoyed an evening of Laughter Yoga - such a fun evening and good for us too!
We ended the year with our Christmas Meal at Barnham Broom - each member received a raffle prize. What a lovely evening!

Some of members events a session of candle making with one of our members.

Our Christmas festival was held in December - a lovely way to connect with the Watton Community at Christmas Time.
A first for Watton Evening: a baby shower for one of our members. Verity and her husband were 'showered' with baby gifts. A beautiful baby boy was born just before Christmas. Congratulations!
On our summer outing members and some of their partners went on a vineyard tour at South Pickenham Estate. They all enjoyed the tractor ride and talk but mostly the wine tasting and nibbles! Huge thank you to the team at The Vineyard!
At our May meeting we were asked to decorate a Wooden Spoon for Norfolk Day 2019 - these were displayed at Evelyn Suffield House Garden.
Thank you to everyone who joined us on our walk for ACWW (Associated Countrywomen of the World). The venue was the East Wretham Nature Reserve, following a 2.3 mile path and discovering a whole range of varying countryside.
Seven members attended the Norfolk Federation Centenary Service at Norwich Cathedral. Pauline (second from the right) was a member of the sixty strong choir formed especially for the occasion and they sang a varied selection of songs
Some of our members and their partners ventured to a local farm to see some of the new born lambs and calves. A lovely day arranged by the farming team at South Pickenham Farm.
