November Round-Up

So November is almost gone... scary stuff!

At Craft Club we continued in the festive spirit with our 3rd consecutive month of Christmas crafting! This month we made 3D Christmas trees out of felt, which we will of course be decorating our homes with!

At our November meeting it was our AGM - as usual, our President gave us a summary of the year's events - it's been a somewhat varied and successful year, with lots of new members joining us, and a wide variety of talks. At the AGM, Victoria stepped down as President but will remain on the committee, and Jane and Pam stepped down from the committee - but not quite entirely! Jane is our temporary treasurer until our new treasurer can join us, and Pam (that would be me - hello!) remains in charge of this blog and Facebook.

Our new President is Alix Vernon-Evans, seen here on the right receiving the Presidential badge of honour from Victoria.

December brings with it Christmas, and Craft Club (Wed 2nd Dec) is more Christmas crafting, of the shiny, beaded jewellery persuasion. Our annual Christmas quiz has been postponed, and will be a New Year quiz at our January meeting. Instead, all members are invited to join the congregation of St George's at their annual Christmas Carol Service starting at 6.30pm on Wed 16th Dec, and afterwards there will be mince pies and mulled wine.

AGM and Sparkling Wine Tasting

Join us for our annual review of the year, and vote for a new committee. Some lovely ladies from the Middlesex Federation will be coming along to make sure we do everything properly.

Want to be on the committee, and help run our WI? So long as you're a member, you can join. No previous experience needed, just enthusiasm! We'll also need a new President, Treasurer and (maybe) Secretary. Drop us an email at londonwestendwi@gmail.com or via our Facebook page and we can give you more information.

The AGM takes 30-40 minutes, so afterwards we'll be having an alcohol tasting/quiz - can you tell your prosecco from your bolly? Come along to our blind tasting of sparkling wines and see how well you can do!
