March 6th 2015 - The Thanksgiving Service for Margaret Harbury
It was wonderful to see so many of Margaret’s friends from our village, attend a beautiful service in memory of such a well-loved and respected lady. Pakenham WI hope to do a fundraiser later in the year in her memory.

March 12th 2015 - Hedgehog Rescue
20150312 Lyndsay Norton20150312 Hedgehog RescueWe were delighted to welcome the delightful Lyndsay Norton as our guest speaker for the evening to give us an insight into her passion for the care and rescue of hedgehogs.Although having never spoken on the subject in public before Lyndsay’s enthusiasm and love of these beautiful creatures was infectious.
She left us sure in the knowledge that any hedgehog who decided to set up home in any Pakenham garden would receive the warmest of welcomes and the very best of food and care.
We were delighted to welcome 3 guests, Sandy Ann and Louise who we hope will now consider joining us on a regular basis. The tea and cakes were served by Barbara,  Jennifer and Pat. Thank you ladies it was a lovely way to end an enjoyable evening.
