Our next evening meeting is on 21st July. This month we will joined once again by Tracy Karkut-Law. Tracy is an EEWI member and local homeopath and this will be her second workshop with us.
We all look forward to summertime and deserve every minute of our well earned holidays! Whether camping with the family or sunning ourselves on the med, pop a little homeopathic remedy kit into your bag and you'll be ready for anything! Find out how non-toxic homeopathic remedies derived from known poisons such as arsenic, stinging nettle and deadly nightshade can be used to relieve the effects of bites and stings, too much sun, unfamiliar food or too much of everything!
You will make and take home your very own remedy kit, complete with instructions, ready for you to take on holiday, or to keep in the medicine cabinet for use all year round. If you weren't at the previous homeopathy talk, you can also find out about first aid remedies to add to your kit.
Tracy presents information about homeopathy in a lively and accessible way, so whether you and homeopathy are strangers or old friends, come along. 7.30pm for an 8pm start Chisenhale Gallery 64 Chisenhale Road, E3 5QZ. Free for members, £3 visitors.

Our May meeting focused on annual resolutions and we took a vote on the SOS for Honey Bees resolution: "Honey Bees play a vital role in the pollination of food crops and in our environment. In view of concerns about the accelerating decline in the UK honey bee population, this meeting urges HM Government to increase funding for research into Bee Health." EEWI members endorsed the resolution which will be voted on at the WI AGM on 3rd June. Look out for feedback soon.
Post Script: Motion carried at the AGM!
