Dates for the Diary - August

Next Meeting
Tuesday 21st August 
Summer Get-together

At our next meeting, on Tuesday 21st August, we will be having a summer get-together, and we'd also like to have a discussion with you all about the future of our WI, and what sort of things you'd like us to organise.  Ideas for getting more members are also welcome!  We'll also have some sewing if you want to get crafty, so please do come along from 6.00pm, and bring some refreshments, some sewing and some ideas!  (If all committee members could try to attend, that would be fab as we really need to have a committee meeting.)


Bake Sales

A quick reminder - we have two table sales coming up in September.  

Saturday 1st September is Phoenix Gardens, and we'll need both helpers on the day and bakers of cakes (+ makers of jams, etc) to help out. 

Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September is Open House weekend, and we'll be doing the refreshments for St Georges on both days. Again, helpers and bakers are needed.


London WIs Picnic, 15th September

As mentioned in previous dates for the diary, on Saturday 15th September,  George from the Barnes WI is arranging a picnic in Hyde Park for members of London WIs.  I hope some of our members will be able to come along?  Details are here:

MEETING VENUE: Hyde Park near'ish' the Princess Diana Memorial Playground which is near Queensway Tube.
TIME: from 12 noon
WHAT TO BRING: Something to share to eat and/or drink and something to sit on. 
WHAT YOU'LL GET: lots of fun and laughter as well as ideas for meeting and speakers.
