UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
UPDATE FROM PRESIDENT AND COMMITTEE.....
You will have seen in the news that Government advice is now to halt all social gatherings for the foreseeable future. NFWI have advised all WI's to follow Government advice so we sadly are cancelling April and May's meetings and any of our clubs that had forthcoming dates. We will reassess prior to the June meeting and see what the advice is at that point. As soon as we are allowed we will have our meetings again and clubs will resume. We will let you know as soon as we can open again.
Spring Group for 2020 is also cancelled. Hornchurch Harmonies are processing what this means as they have paid monies out for various things for what would have been a fantastic night. We have no update at the moment if they can get a new date for later in the year. We will let anyone who has a ticket know when we find out.
We are still holding Committee meetings - we are doing this via our computers.
Now for a lighter note.
We have set up a pen pal club whilst we can't get out as much which is going well. We are also producing a newsletter monthly which is distributed to all members, either by email or hand-delivered. This keeps everyone up to date. We also have a Sunday afternoon zoom event where we either have a quiz or game or sometimes just catchup. Every member is welcome.
Next, is a challenge. We are challenging all of our members to make a craft item. This can be anything you wish, either using a skill you already have or using the opportunity to learn a new one. If all is back to normal come Christmas we will hold a craft sale table and sell each item for a small donation that we could donate to our chosen charity. If you are a member of our Facebook page please pop on updates with how your items are coming along.
Lastly, on behalf of all of the Committee, we hope you are well, that we all stay that way and once this is over we will be back together all the stronger for this. At times like these it brings home the importance of our WI, that we have friends that can help when needed and be there for each other whatever the weather.
Jo, Sara, Vicki, Diane, Mandy, Verity, Leigh and Jody
We are a friendly, inclusive group of ladies who meet regularly on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.30 for a 7.45pm start.
Our aim is to make friends, share knowledge, learn new skills, and have fun.
The programme is varied with interesting Speakers, craft events, social nights and there is always time for tea, biscuits and a chat.
In addition we run various clubs ie book, crafts, walking, games, cafe, cinema and theatre trips. We also have a Dames that dine club every other month, and get together with other WI's for other social events.
We welcome new visitors to our meetings where you will always find a friendly face to sit with.
