23rd of December: Season’s Greetings
We hope that you all have an enjoyable Christmas and New Year period, even if you are not able to do all that you had planned!
There was lots of chatter and laughter at the December meeting and hope all those that attended enjoyed the evening. At the moment we cannot say what form the January meeting will take – our 4th Birthday! TheCommittee will be discussing this after Christmas and we will let you know what we have planned for that meeting.
We have been sent this link by theBroxtowe Women’s Project which provides some important information on a particular aspect of abuse:

3rd of January: IMPORTANT – January 2022 Members Meeting
In view of the Omicrom variant Covid 19 surge and possible further restrictions in the near future, we need to consider whether to meet in person next week (Wednesday January 12th).
We are celebrating our 4th Birthday with a cake decorating and sugar paste crafting demonstration with Jill from Beeston Baking School. Jill can either do the demonstration face to face as planned or on Zoom. If it is on Zoom, after the cake decorating demo she guide us through making a sugar paste flower. You would just need to have some sugar paste and a plastic bag ready at home for this.
We need a response via email OR via Facebook to one of the options below, by Friday January 7th.
Michelle on behalf of the Committee
a) I will attend the meeting on Zoom
b) I will attend the meeting face to face meeting
c) I will attend the meeting in either format
d) I will not be attending the January Meeting
