3rd of February: News from The Hive WI
We are pleased to report that we will be having our next meeting, 9 February, in the church hall and full details will be in the Newsletter being sent to you in the next few days.
In the meantime we have a few requests to our members:
1: We need a couple of people to assist in putting out chairs and tables before the meeting. If you can help please send an email. Of course all help at the end of the evening to put them away will be equally appreciated. One person to assist in the kitchen would also be welcome.
2: In June we will be joined by … so it should be a fun evening! We thought it would be appropriate to include something which acknowledges theQueen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated during the Bank Holiday prior to the meeting. Sally would like a few volunteers to share ideas and put them into action for that June meeting. Either email or speak to her with your interest.
3: During the last few months that we received many enquiries from local women who were interested in joining The Hive and we hope to have several of them will be joining us at themeeting next week. The Committee would like them to receive a warm welcome but as you know we, theCommittee, can be very busy during the meeting. We are, therefore, hoping that a few members would be willing to greet our visitors and spend sometime welcoming them to our WI. If you would be willing to do this or would like to know more, please send us an email.
As always we very much appreciate your support.
The Hive WI Committee
3rd of February: June Meeting
My apologies but the last email failed the detail that we have Morris Dancing as the feature for the evening and as an extra we hope to incorporate an acknowledgement to the Queen’s Jubiliee.
