get swishing!

If, like me, you've adopted a "one in, one out" policy to manage the amount of stuff in your cupboards, you might want to take advantage of our swishing session at our next meeting on 18th January. The idea is you bring good quality, unwanted clothes and Christmas gifts and exchange then for a token or tokens and then once we have taken in all the goods you can use your tokens to buy back something for yourself. You can bring any clothes or gifts as long as they are in good condition and you REALLY don't want them any more. We will "price" them up -please don't get offended if you feel we have under-priced your items - we will be trying to get the pricing done as swiftly as possible so we can get the shopping started!!! We may also have a system for purchasing tokens if you don't have any stuff to bring along - you don't have to come armed with swaps to come along and take part!

7.30pm start - we will attempt to get all your items in and priced up by 8.30pm then the shopping will commence.
Tea and coffee provided, please feel free to bring a bottle.

Free for members , £3 for visitors at St Margaret's House 21 Old Ford Road E2.

For our coffee morning on Friday 21st January we are going to visit the Museum of London in Docklands at West India Quay for coffee. Entry is free, so you can go straight in to the cafe to meet at 10.30am, then if you fancy it, catch up on local history at the museum with a visit to the Siege of Sidney Street exhibition.  Or something less worthy...

To help us get through the rest of January, don't forget too that we're having our post Christmas supper at the Olive on 26th January.  Let Niki know if you are coming so that we can book in advance.

See you soon.
