Hyde Heath WI enjoyed a night out at the pictures. They went to see Calendar Girls at the UCI cinema in High Wycombe. They thought that the film was very entertaining; a good story made into a good movie. The acting was superb and the script very funny. This film makes excellent publicity for the WI. Quite unjustly, the WI has a reputation for being fuddy-duddy and narrow-minded. This film dispels that myth by showing that members of the WI are forward thinking, prepared to accept a challenge and will do almost anything for a good cause.
|Margaret Dunn who has been a member of the WI for 25 years. and lives in Hyde Heath, thought the film gave members the opportunity to laugh at their own stereotypical image.|
|Eve Brown, a long standing member also from Hyde Heath, thought the film was good with lots of humour. However she felt that the boring speakers portrayed in the film might put prospective new members off. "The History of the Tea Towel", "Rugs and Carpets" and "One Hundred Ways with Broccoli" is not exactly riveting stuff. Most speakers at the Hyde Heath WI meetings are very interesting and professional.|
|Ruth Coulton from Hyde Heath has been a member for about twenty years. Ruth thought that the film was witty and humorous with a tinge of sadness.|
|Margaret Sargeant from Hyde Heath has been a member of the WI for twenty six years. Margaret thought the film well depicted the camaraderie and friendship found in the WI. Margaret's husband, Chris, thought that it gave a whole new meaning to iced buns!|
|Di Coombes, from Hyde Heath thought the film was superb and depicted the WI in a good light.|
|Kathryn Spooner from Great Missenden, who has been a member for three years, thought that the film was well cast. She also said that the Yorkshire humour came through and that the film was suitable for a very wide audience.|
News item - March 2001
Members of Hyde Heath (Evening) WI joined in a social event on Saturday 24th March where groups who use the Village Hall had their annual get-together. Each of the groups played their part by giving a humorous or tuneful sample of their own particular activity. The photograph shows members of the WI performing a song sending up the production of the infamous WI calendar. The audience was very appreciative and was left shouting for more. The profit from the social event is being split between the Ian Rennie Hospice at Home Charity and the Diabetes Support Group at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
