Audlem WI's Progressive Whist Drive

Yes, it's that time of year again when our thoughts turn to indoor activities rather than outdoor!

With this in mind, Audlem WI are throwing open the doors of the Scout and Guide Hall to everyone, and are organising a whist drive to challenge those who are already experts as well as novices like myself who struggle to hold the cards in my hands, let alone in any sort of order!

The date for your diaries is Thursday 24th October at 7.00 pm.

Tickets will cost £5, and this includes an array of delightful refreshments as only the WI can produce.....served by the usual bevy of beautiful ladies.

We can promise you an awesome raffle and prizes galore, even the wooden spoon prizes are worth losing for.

So do come along and enjoy an evening of camaraderie and fun with the promise that the only 'Trump' to be seen will be well hidden in the pack!

We need you to purchase tickets in advance as we need to know how many people we are catering for, so please contact Jean Cook on 01270 780275 or our very own star whist player Doreen Hubbard on 01270 811821.

See you there.
