At our next meeting, on Tuesday 20th November, we will be introduced to soap carving with Paula Haughney, a sculptor based in Bow. To find out more about her and her work click here. As usual we will meet at St Margaret’s Hall, behind the Gallery Cafe, 21 Old Ford Rd, E2 9PL - from 7pm aiming to start at 730. Entry is via the black gate to the left of the cafe and around the garden. Entry for members is free and visitors are asked to pay £4.00. There is a donation tin for refreshments.
This month we are also highlighting Bow Foodbank’s Christmas gift appeal. EEWI will be donating to the appeal, as our charity for 2018, but they need more. It is hoped that they will be able to give all 300 users of their service a small Christmas gift, costing about £5. This is in addition to the 10 items that can be picked up each week.
As they are keen to give everyone a gift of a similar value and in the expectation that they will be able to buy more as a bulk purchase they are looking for cash donations. If you want to make a gift aid donation please follow this link, any money collected at our meeting will be forwarded to them.
Our coffee morning on the 23rd November will be at - Second Shot Coffee, 475 Bethnal Green Rd, London E2 9QH, meeting from 10.30.
Additionally there is a coffee morning at Chisenhale Gallery, 64 Chisenhale Rd, the following Friday, 30th November, from 9am, E3 5QZ, not only will there be some EEWI cake, tea & coffee, but also a tour of their current exhibition by Beirut based artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan.

Whilst we still have most of November and December to look forward to, I wanted to warn everyone that our meetings are moving to the 3rd THURSDAY of each month from January 2019. If you have set reminders in your calendars please change them. Our website has been updated, so you can check what is planned for the next few months and coffee morning locations by clicking here. Next year we will also change the coffee mornings to either the 4th or 1st Friday of each month. If you have a preference please let us know.
