Rural

You’re never too young to start …

Meetings held in Community Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm

Membership £12.00 Visitors £2.00

Remember to bring your cup/mug!

With the character of the village changing as new houses are built and new folk move in, traditional village institutions can often be overlooked as old fashioned, and perhaps not relevant to today’s modern pace of life. But its worth sparing the ‘Rural’ (Gargunnock WRI) a second glance. Once a month, ladies of all ages, backgrounds and outlooks enjoy the opportunity to go down a gear or two, to enjoy home grown entertainment, delicious home baking, and the friendship of others.

Let me set the record straight.  To attend a meeting:-

  • – You do not have to be collecting your pension – ladies in their 30’s and 40’s regularly attend.
  • – You do not need to be connected to farming in any way.
  • – You do not have to be a dab hand at crochet or flower arranging, or even baking. But if you are, your talents will be used to the full.
  • – You do not have to enter any competitions if you do not wish to. Although there is wide scope for you to do so if you wish.

Gargunnock Rural meets on the third Tuesday of every month, often with outings and competitions away in between.  We meet at the Community Centre Main Hall at 7.30pm. The meetings generally start with a short talk or entertainment, and end with tea (and home baking) and a raffle. Each evening there are two competitions for members to enter – sometimes baking or handicrafts but perhaps also something as simple as your favourite thimble, picture or tea cup.
