Caton Women’s Institute
We had a fantastic time at our September meeting with a visit from Kate Bargh who gave us a talk and demonstration of how to make flavoured drinks, chutneys and jams. We got to taste gooseberry vodka, rhubarb and ginger gin, sloe gin and elderflower cordial. They were all delicious and all chose a favourite. She gave good tips on how to make jam successfully and we got all the recipes so hopefully you know someone in the WI who will make some and let you have a taste. Otherwise you’ll have to join our group to get the secrets!
Joining our group is easy. You can come to a couple of meetings without committing to join to see what they are like. We meet once a month (1st Thursday) 7:30pm at the Victoria Institute and our next meeting is on the 5th October. It’s a great place to socialise and learn something new. At our next meeting we elect our committee members and will have a fun quiz but we are mostly looking forward to our competition: everyone will bring a sweet treat to show and, after we’ve chosen the winner, we will eat them! There will be sugar-free options too. Please check out our two other October events listed below.
