March 20th - Spivs and Spam
The culinary team are poised and ready to give forty customers a feast in true 1940's style. The hall will be transformed for one night only to resemble a war time venue and we hope to prove that with very little rations it was still possible to have a great meal and a fun evening out with friends.
March 27th - Pakenham Parish Plan - Open Afternoon.
The culinary team are producing non stop teas and cakes for the village. The fare will include some of the delicacies that will be served in Texas.

Trisha and Amy, the two bee keeping friends, make a welcome return return to this months meeting.

The girls captured the hearts of a visiting W.I. and all our members with their passion and love of bees last May - we are delighted to have them back. This is the last meeting before Tea Time In Texas. I.T.V. join us for the evening as part of their TV coverage for the trip.
April 14th - Departure for Tea Time In Texas
Coverage of our adventure can be found on the www.pakenham-village.co.uk web site - click Pakenham W.I. The site will be updated daily from The States with film, piccies and reports to enable the British firms supporting the venture, local news media, family and friends to follow the story as it evolves. From humble beginnings this is now big news on both sides of the Atlantic. There is great excitement across the pond for an event which will be an absolute first in the U.S.A. We are proud and delighted to be taking the good name of English food and cooking and still find it hard to believe that months of planning are about to become reality.
