February Monthly Meeting with Harper Stein

Wednesday 15th February 2017 6.30pm


Guests are very welcome (£5 for non-WI members), and we are delighted to open up the meeting to members of other WIs too. If you're not a LWEWI member, please email us at londonwestendwi@gmail.com or reserve a ticket via eventbrite so we have an idea of numbers.

It's Valentines day (or near enough) so this month we're exploring matters of the heart.



Harper Stein, the UK's most exclusive invitation-only dating agency, are delighted to present an interesting talk by award winning dating and relationship coach, Shelley J Whitehead. Shelley's fascinating talk will explore  how to lead a life you love, how to have better relationships and the biggest mistakes we make in relationships and dating. 

Single ladies are warmly welcomed for complimentary registration with Harper Stein at the end of the talk, where Shelley will also be available to answer questions and to explore private coaching options.




St George's Bloomsbury, 6 Little Russell Street, London WC1A 2HR. Doors open at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm start.

Committee Members Needed - URGENT

We really, urgently need committee members for the next year! We'll soon have our AGM (date to be announced), and we'll be losing Alix as President and Becki & Laura as co-Treasurers. 

Without these posts the London West End WI will sadly have CLOSE as we are not allowed to operate without filling these positions. 

If you're a paid up member of LWEWI you can be on the committee! Get in touch with us via email at londonwestendwi@gmail.com and we'll let you know what's involved. It's not too onerous, and you'll have the backing of other committee members such as our lovely secretary, Claude and long-standing member Helena.

January Review

We've welcomed in the new year with colour and fun at both Craft Club and our Monthly Meeting this January!

Craft Club
At the first meeting of Craft Club this year we had another go at quilling, which we first tried over a year ago. This time round our talented crafty ladies made some amazing cards!



Monthly Meeting
To banish the winter blues, our January meeting was all about Carnival! Our guest speaker, Natalie, gave a presentation about the history of Carnival in the Caribbean and beyond, as well as bringing along some costumes for us to try on, and leading us in some Carnival dances!
