Don't despair if you're missing the heat and sunshine. After a blistering summer, and a lovely relaxed and chatty meeting in August, we're going to warm you up with a little bit of action this month. So press your swishy skirts and polish your dancing shoes because we'll be learning a few moves with Swing Patrol's Scott Cuprit at our evening meeting on Tuesday 17th September. If you came along in January to Clare Hair's vintage hair styling session, you may even want to have a go at a fancy hairdo to go with your dancing togs. We think it will be a lot of fun. As usual we'll be warming up from 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Guests are very welcome -we only ask for a £4 donation to cover costs. We'll bring refreshments, including wine, though do please feel free to share something too if you wish.
For our coffee morning - 10.30am on Friday 20th September - we'll be going to Stepney City Farm, Stepney Way E1 3DG, our own little bit of the countryside but with better coffee. Map here. Buses 309 or 339 will drop you nearby, or you can walk from Stepney Green tube or Limehouse DLR (7 minutes walk according to TFL, but that'll depend on how quickly you walk!).
We've also got a book club meeting lined up for Monday 16th September to discuss Sarah Dunant's In the Company of the Courtesan (contact us for info on venue). And you're welcome to join us for Knit and Natter on Thursday 26th September at the Coborn Arms, Coborn Road E3 from 6.30 -8.30pm. And check the side-bar for information on the events where we are running cake stalls this month. It would be good if you can help.
I'm really looking forward to seeing you all, so hope you can make it. Still got a little bit of catching up to do since I got back from holiday, so look out for more info on your favourite local shops here on the blog soon.
