Rase Women's Institute



Welcome to the Rase WI in Middle Rasen

The Rase WI welcomes its members from the wider Market Rasen and Middle Rasen area. Meetings are held at the Middle Rasen Village Hall, LN8 3LD on 3rdTuesday of the month.


WI members and the Federation Chairman were welcomed to the Annual meeting by the President Anne.

The business meeting followed, where the secretary, treasurer and President gave their reports of the past year. These were accepted unanimously by the members. New committee members and a new President were elected.

The retiring President Anne was thanked for her enthusiasm and hard work over the past three years and was presented with a lovely peony plant in recognition of this. The mood then lightened as a panel game based on the TV show “Would I Lie to You” organised by the retiring President, was played. Four members formed the panel and there was much fun and hilarity as the game progressed. A very entertaining and original interpretation of the TV show.

Refreshments followed and everyone spent this time chatting and catching up with friends and so ended a very enjoyable afternoon.

The next meeting on the evening of the 24th April is an open meeting when Linda Clark of the “Spotted Dog Flower Co” will be speaking and demonstrating. All will be very welcome!



For some January and the start of a new year can be quite daunting after the run up to Christmas and enjoying the festivities with friends and families.

The January meeting was held on a cold, very dreary day with very little daylight. The demonstrator was Chris, a member of the group, who brought shining and twinkling, beautiful stones of varying colours, which were displayed on a table brightening the hall. Following precise instructions from Chris, the ladies started making their Sun Catchers amidst lots of laughter. Some of the stones were tiny making it difficult for some members with poorer eyesight. It was lovely to see everyone helping each other where needed. Several ladies had joined us with a view to joining the group, they were able to chat with the members enjoying the evening. In essence this is what WIs do! We welcome new members, interesting speakers, social activities, plenty of coach trips and inhouse demonstrations, quizzes and much more.

The March meeting is on 27 th March, “Messing about on the River” in the village hall, not on the river! There will be a new committee, voted for at the Annual Meeting. I have stepped down as President and from the committee as it is now my time to pass on the baton. I am sure that the next president will be an excellent one (as long as Donald Txxxp doesn't run for president of Rase WI!)
Best wishes to all,

Anne Crawforth. (Rase WI)
