December saw our ladies making Christmas Crackers with one of our WI members, Sara Lawton. Sara showed us two styles of making crackers for the festive period. We made a sparkly cracker and a Rudolf cracker, and we even made our own jokes to go inside. One was a little more fiddly than the other […]
Thanks to all for your support and goodwill. Chester Devas WI would not be here today if it wasn’t for you!! Last week saw our AGM with lots of farewells and goodbyes to committee members but also lots of ‘hellos’ to newly recruited committee members. Rebecca Collins (previously President) thanked all the Chester Devas […]

Rose showed us some of the basics in producing bunting and little patchwork squares that could be used to make things like cushions and covers or mug-rugs which were raffled off on the evening. […]

What a great night we had listening to Tom Ausen’s, a Registered Osteopath at 3 Hares Clinic, talk on the History of Osteopathy last Thursday evening. Big thanks to our very own finance secretary, Rose, for being our guinea pig patient for the evening. It was also an evening of drinks and nibbles to celebrate […]
Only a WI would think to combine a race night to raise funds with cake, cake and more cake! Over £100 was raised on the night as everyone enjoyed a flutter, shared a laugh and at the end of the evening, one lucky person went home with a gorgeous cake. It was a win win […]
Learning Mandarin Huge thanks goes to our member Shi Yichao from the University of Chester for a fantastic evening of Learning Mandarin. Our pronunciations may have been a little bit off key but what a fabulous evening. We learnt how to ‘meet and greet’ in Mandarin, we learnt about differences in tone, a few numbers […]
Huge thanks to Dawn Llewellyn for her talk on ‘Maternal Silences: Motherhood and Voluntary Childlessness in Christianity’. It raised so many questions and lots of discussion from the attendees at April’s meeting. We could have stayed for hours sharing experiences and discussing the topic!
