Christmas meetings!

For our last meeting of the year we thought we would share some good wine, some party snacks and some Christmassy songs. The amazing Lyn Gerald will be leading us in some traditional Christmas and gospel singing to warm our wintry chestnuts and lift our hearts.We will also have a raffle with (we hope) a range of prizes. We are also collecting gifts again for U-Turn Women's Centre. What we ask is that you buy an extra present that would be suitable for a female friend or family member, wrap it up and bring it along to the meeting. It doesn't have to cost very much but it is just for us to show that someone is thinking of the women who use the centre. We know that the presents we collect not only have a massive impact on the service users but it also takes some pressure off the charity itself. They distribute the presents at their Christmas meal. EEWI has been supporting U-Turn in this way since we began in 2007. Representatives from U-Turn will come along to the meeting to pick up the  gifts from us.

So we look forward to seeing you on the 16th December, 7pm onwards at St Margaret's House, 21 Old Ford Road, E2 9PL. The hall is situated at the back of the Gallery Cafe in St Margaret's House which you access by going through the black gates to the left of the cafe, follow the path round to the right and you should see the hall on the other side of the garden. There will be alcoholic and non alcoholic refreshments and a bit of Christmas baking BUT we are always up for additions and contributions towards this so if you fancy your hand at some mince pies or some Christmas savouries or you wanted to bring along a tipple, no one is going to have a problem with that.
As has become traditional for us, we are going to the Geffrye Museum for our December coffee morning and to visit their free annual exhibition, Christmas Past.  Join us at 10.30am on 19th December. All welcome - you don't have to be a member. For more info about the Geffrye Museum and how to get there click here. Entry is free.
