With such turmoil going on over the last few days, we want to remind everyone how important it is to get together and celebrate the good things about the East End, and especially EEWI. So big thanks to everyone who has been involved in all our events over the last few weeks, especially those dedicated troopers who turned out for the Museum of Childhood Summer Festival and have only just managed to dry out after torrential rain in the afternoon. And to the lovely Ruth for taking the floor at our last meeting and showing us how to sort out our wardrobes. Now we all know how to make the most of our assets, plentiful or otherwise. It was a fab evening and we learnt a great deal about how to liberate our unloved stuff and fill our wardrobes with gladrags instead. We're very,very proud that we have such talented members willing to share their knowledge and skills with us.
We are equally delighted that at the August meeting, our Ella will be showing us how to improve our holiday snapshots with a session on using photography, focusing on how to get the best from your digital camera. We'll also be launching our photography competition for summer, so do bring along your cameras and get some expert advice. We'll also have the people from WiiFit with a demo on how you might use some electronic help to stay fit. We are meeting on 16th August, our usual venue, St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road, E2, 7.30pm for 8pm. We'll have tea and coffee for you, and as many cakes as our generous bakers bring along, but do feel free to bring a bottle too if you wish.
On Friday 19th August we have our coffee morning from 10.30am at the Zealand Cafe, on the corner of Zealand Road and Roman Road, just along from St Barnabas Church - it's quite a small venue, but they know we're coming. And in the evening we'll be gathering from 5.30pm onwards for our summer picnic at Wennington Green, Mile End Park, close to the Adizone/ Bow Wharf. Just bring some food and drink, blankets and bunting and your happy selves and family.
We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for fine weather. And if it rains there are plenty of pubs nearby for us to get dry. Or wet our whistles.
