Dear Friends,

I have got my tree up, made some mince pies and written most of my cards and letters so I think I am getting into the festive spirit!   I do hope that you are too. I can’t remember being this keen to open the Christmas cards which have popped through my letterbox, to catch up on news for many a year.  I guess it’s all part of the changes wrought by Covid for us all.

It’s been lovely to see so many of you on our Chat with the Chair sessions on Zoom many of them with members using Zoom for the first time – absolutely great to see you.  If you haven’t ever used it before just drop Sarah or Kathy a note or give them a call and we will be delighted to help you.

The Federation Panto rehearsals have begun and I do hope that you will be able to join in the fun on the 17th December. The cast of Officer Trustees are being joined by a couple of very special guests!

Some super entries coming in for the Federation ‘My Homemade Christmas’ competition, just email a photo of your entry to .  Your entry can be anything festive and homemade.   Entries close at 12 noon on 14th December.  If you don’t have email, then do ask one of your WI friends if they could email a photo in for you.  At least one of the winners in our last competition did this – so go on…. ask a WI friend to help you out!
