In July four members from Herts Belles packed up their tents and sleeping bags and headed off to Nottinghamshire for a camping weekend like no other! Tea and Tents is a camping weekend organised by an elite team of WI members for WI members.The weekend was absolutely amazing with 500 members in attendance. There was a broad selection of ladies from all corners of the country and a massive age range too.
Throughout the day there were all manner of workshops and talks run by the ladies camping there. Prices for the workshops averaged out at about £5 and you could book yourself onto as many (or few) as you wanted. The campsite was lovely with brightly coloured bunting, knitted creations and even a sculpture of umbrellas hung in the trees.
In the evenings there were lots of other events including a makers market, Bake Off and Sewing Bee competitions, campfire and of course lots of lovely homemade food.
There were too many things going on to mention them all but it’s safe to say we smiled and laughed all weekend. I don’t think we could praise it or recommend it highly enough. So ladies of Hertfordshire who’s up for joining us next year?
