President’s Post October 2021

The WI-Flyers WI meet on the 4th Wednesday in the month. We have met throughout lockdown on Zoom and have had our first Face to Face Meetings. If you are interested in joining us please email: wiflyerssec@hampshirewi.org.uk

It was really lovely to see so many members and Guests at our September meeting, even if a few of us visited the Rugby club first!! 
As all the feedback was very positive about moving to Cove Cricket Club, you will know that we sent out a voting form earlier than we had originally intended. The result of the vote was 99% of those who voted would like to continue meeting at the Cove Cricket Club, Grasmere Avenue GU14 0LE Therefore from the 27th October that is where we will be holding our meetings.

I hope you all get chance to finish your stockings or sacks for our November Christmas party, where we hope you will bring them filled with items suitable for a young homeless person. Suggested items could be soap, shower gel, toothbrush/toothpaste, flannel, gender neutral socks/gloves, use your imagination….and don’t forget those festive treats.

As you know we celebrate Christmas in November!! We think the Cove Cricket club is a perfect venue for a party, time to have some fun after last year was cancelled.   We can pay a bit extra to have the bar opened if you would like to, also we welcome any suggestions for party games, and would you like a secret Santa? No, I won’t be dressing up as Santa!!

Just a reminder, we collect monthly for the food bank click here for a suggested list for donations
I don’t know about you, but I don’t tend to wear make-up unless I am going out, and COVID stopped going out!! So, I am looking forward to having a make- up re-fresh with Nina Roe, at Cove Cricket Club. As well as a make-up demonstration, Nina is going to tell us some of her many stories about her life as a make-up artist, please take time to visit her website.

Judging from our last meeting, it seems that we are all quite happy to meet inside, all be it with the doors and windows open, and I hope you are feeling more confident about mixing socially. However, if anyone is struggling, please have a private chat with me, so we can offer support, we will also be making the meetings available on Zoom.

The committee welcome ideas for next year’s programme, I will put a sheet out for you to put down things you would like to do. Along with that list will be the cake rota, and a rota for a couple of members to make and serve refreshments.

Best Wishes
Penny
