Welcome to the Ottershaw Night Owls website. We are a friendly evening group who meet on the first Tuesday of every month at 8 pm. Our membership is now full and we are operating a waiting list for ladies who would like to join us. If you would like to be added to our waiting list or to come as a visitor before you join, then please get in touch via our contact us page. Please note that we can only welcome visitors by prior arrangement so that we can ensure that adequate seating is available.

Next Meeting - 3 March

Madajazz - The the Bags and Hats from Madagascar - Jane Muddle takes us on a trip around Madagascar Island, telling us how the bags and hats are made and involving the audience in some
modelling.

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices

Please remember to keep collecting your 20p pieces and return to us at the March meeting so that we can make our donation.

Walking Netball

The WI has partnered with Netball England to set up a programme of walking netball sessions around the country.

Walking Netball has evolved from a growing demand for walking sports. Often, one of netball’s strengths is that people never forget playing the sport and the memories as well as the love for the game never leave.
 
Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.
 
It really is for everyone - we met some of the ladies who play at the meeting in Dorking and they are all ages and they love it!


We have been given the opportunity to participate in sessions shared with Halliford WI, another evening WI. Halliford have already started the programme and are happy for us to join them.
 
The sessions take place fortnightly at 
Spelthorne Leisure Centre on Wednesdays between 12.00 pm- 1.00 pm. It is not too late to join in and you don’t have to commit to coming every week. It is great exercise and
lots of laughs.
There is no commitment so you can simply come and try it and then dip in and out as you like. If you are interested in joining then please contact Sal - onowi_social@outlook.com

February Meeting - The Wildlife Wanderer

We hope everyone enjoyed our talk by David Bailey. We were especially lucky to get him at such short notice.
