Member of the Month - June 2017

Ruth T

What made you join Cam City WI?

I am a founder member and ex secretary of Cam City WI. I went along to the first meeting after seeing a piece in the local newspaper. I always said I would join the WI when the opportunity presented itself. I was nervous at the thought of walking into a room full of women i didn't know! At the time i was the mum of a pretty full on 2 year old (now 6 and still full on) and recovering from major back surgery, however after much cajoling from my husband and somewhat bolstered by the promise of cake and tea i took the plunge and haven't looked back.

Who inspires you and why?

This is a really hard question! Currently I am mostly inspired by those around me, i have so many talented friends who make me want to be better. That sounds so soppy but its completely true!

What are your guilty pleasures?

  • Eating nutella straight from the jar

  • Peanut butter and marmite sandwiches,

  • Watching kids TV when my daughter isn't there 

  • Listening to Nickleback (DONT JUDGE ME!!!!!)

  • Drinking lots of Gin!

If you had a million pounds, what would you do with it?


I don't think there is much i wouldn't do for a million. Although i wouldn't eat bugs or poo! 

What's on your bucket list?

  1. I would like to see the Taj Mahal

  2. One day in the near future i would like to publish a book of crochet designs

  3. I would love to visit New York and the east coast of America (although that can wait for a few years i think!)

What would your ideal day entail?

A lie in preferably with breakfast in bed, a cuddle and some reading with Abigail. I would then go to Jazzercise and get my endorphin fix. Spending time with my mum would be fab. Hopefully Neil would have arranged a nice dinner out for 2 somewhere in town. 

Another scenario would involve me with all the yarn, nibbles, movie selection, tea and of course gin i could wish for, sprinkle a few friends in there and you have a pretty perfect day.
