The Beauvale Group is made up of several local WIs:
Nuthall & District
Each year one WI takes the lead to arrange an event in which members of all these WIs can take part. The group system allows everyone to meet a wider group of people and take part in events perhaps too expensive to be run by a sole WI. 2018's event was arranged and hosted by Hucknall/Leenside and took place on Friday 21st September 2018 at 7.15pm at the Hucknall Central Methodist Church. It was a Kurling competition and tickets were £4 each. See photographs below, showing Watnall WI members taking part - unfortunately, we didn't win but it was a very enjoyable evening and Hucknall/Leenside WI (the hostesses) were awarded the Violet Baumber award for winning the competition.
