Dear Friends

Well, here we are in August already and as my dad remarked recently, the nights are drawing in! Never mind, WIs across the county are beginning to consider ways and means of enabling their members to meet if they wish to do so.  I have been meeting with the officers of WIs and their Link Trustees on-line and we have heard some interesting ideas and plans.  It has been heartening to hear about the various innovative ways that you have all been keeping in touch.  Well done, everyone.

The Board of Trustees and the various sub- committees have planned a schedule of events and news of these is on the website as well as in a mailing to your WI Secretary.  We will continue to review each event as the date draws near and make a decision about viability based on take-up and the latest government guidelines.  “ If we can… we will…” is a phrase in common use at all of our meetings.

Here is the outline plan of events from now until Christmas – booking details are with your WI Secretary.  Please be assured that if we are unable to run an event then you will, of course, receive a full refund.

9th September— Learn how to use your IPad £12.50/ Instagram £10
18th September—Have a go at Archery £25 FULLY BOOKED
26th September—ABBA night £15
15th October—Rev Richard Coles Lunch £40
26th October—Grand Day Out to Windsor £20
4th November—Taste of Italy Day £23
14th November—Indian Block Printing £16.50
26th November—Manchester Christmas Markets £20
2nd December—1940s Christmas £13.50

As always I would like to thank you all for your friendship and support throughout the lockdown and look forward to better days ahead for us all.

Best wishes
