march meeting: celebrating women even more!

We are continuing our celebration of International Women's Day at our evening meeting on 17th March 2015, 7pm for 7.30pm start. We are very pleased to invite Virginia Hawke along to run an art session around inspirational women. What you need to do is bring a photo or photos of your inspirational woman and Virginia will help us to create a piece of art to celebrate them. It could be someone from your own life, a famous or historical person - anyone that has made an impact on you. The session is aimed at all artistic abilities so if you think you have none, please don't worry as it is amazing what you can create with a bit of help and advice. It's probably a good idea to wear clothes that you don't mind getting specks of paint or glue on just to be on the safe side.

We're also selling off some of our excess stash of fabrics. Plus we'll be chossing - from a "hat" which of our members will be offered a place at the WI Centenary Celebration Garden Party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace. 

As usual we will be at  St Margaret's House on Old Ford Road. When looking at the Gallery Cafe on Old Ford Road, go through the gates on the left hand side and follow the garden path round to the right where you will see the hall. Free for members and £4 for visitors. Refreshments will be provided but contributions of the consumable as well as spendable type always very much welcomed.

You'll find details of our 20th March Coffee Morning and Afternoon Teas in the side bar on the right.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of our events very soon!

celebrate international women's day with us!

Come and join us for an evening of live music with Alice Barlow, Katherine Abbot and Priscilla Andershohn in a great venue... and it's free! At the Gallery Cafe from 7.30pm on 8th March.

EEWI are really pleased to be able to work with the Gallery Cafe to celebrate 2015's International Women's Day. Each year on March the 8th around the world people celebrate the achievements of women and shout out about the inequalities and injustices still taking place at home and abroad. We wanted to do something celebratory and, as this year's theme is 'Make it Happen', we thought we would put on an event for our members as well as the wider community and have invited three fantastic young women singer songwriters to perform for us;

Alice Barlow, Katherine Abbott, Priscilla Andersohn

As well as music, the Gallery Café serves wonderful food and has a range of beers, wines, coffees and teas. For more info about the café click here.

We really hope you can join us for an evening of celebration. Everyone is welcome (even men) so please spread the word. If you would like to know more about International Women's Day please click here.

Hope to see you there.
