Tilly WIdgets WI first met on 14 May 2014. We were named after local Farnborough aeronautical engineer Beatrice (Tilly) Shilling. an inspiring women who invented a widget which would prevent the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine in fighter planes in WWII from being flooded with fuel and stalling whilst performing divebombing type manoeuvres.
We’re a developing WI with traditional ideas with a modern twist, bringing together women of all ages, backgrounds and cultures in the local community. Tilly WIdgets WI offers the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and most importantly, have fun together. What we all have in common is that we enjoy getting together and trying new things, listening to new ideas, sharing our stories and sampling the array of wonderful cakes, cookies and biscuits kindly donated, made or brought by members to our monthly meetings.
Happy New Year everyone!
For this month’s meeting we’re talking about the resolutions with our WI advisors and to stave off the January blues, having a few games.
