Next Saturday, 5th August, 11-4pm, at Victoria Park, we have a cake stand at the Big Day Out. The event is near the bandstand. If you can help on the day and/or by baking please get in touch with Natasha by emailing Natasha.firstname.lastname@example.org or calling/texting 07701015588.
Tuesday 15th August, we will be talking about the Economy. We have invited a member of the Economy newsletter team to come and talk to us about their mission to make the subject of economics more interesting to non-specialists, so we can better understand how economics affects our daily lives.
As usual we will be in St Margaret's Hall, behind the Gallery Cafe 21 Old Ford Rd. E2 9PL. The doors open at 7 and we aim to start at 730.
The coffee morning on Friday 18th August, from 10.30, will be at The Larder, 241-243 Globe Rd, E2 0JD.
We have updated the Coming up in 2017 page of our website, and want to highlight our October meeting where we will be hosting a group meeting inviting other local WI Groups to celebrate Black History month. We have a few ideas for activities and food but thought we would ask you, our members, if you have any ideas and contacts with people who might be able to help with food, drinks or activities fitting the theme of the evening.
We have been contacted by a member of another WI group in Essex she is involved with Weavers Adventure Playground, who are in need of funds and volunteers. In particular, they are looking for help with their garden, to maintain borders and they are hoping to start a vegetable/fruit garden. Other opportunities include helping with the small kitchen for after school snacks, and simple lunches on Saturdays and school holidays. Or woodwork/arts & crafts with the children.
If you can help or know anyone who would like to please contact them directly or reply to this email and I will give you a phone/email address of Beverly who contacted us.
