September Newsletter

Hello ladies and welcome to the September newsletter

I am absolutely delighted to be able to tell you that WoSWI is safe, as two of our members have stepped forward to take over the Treasurer role between them. Huge thanks to Sarah Campbell and Lynne Wheeler. We’re really looking forward to working with you both and a big welcome to our merry band of committee members. Incidentally, if any of you other ladies feel like you could do with a new interest in your life you would be most welcome to join the committee as well. 

AGM September 10th
So. most excitingly, we are able to meet in person once again!! Next Thursday is our long delayed AGM, where we do all the business stuff and hold our Presidential election. I have an inkling that I know who it will be!

Of course, it isn’t just going to be business matters – we have some fun planned as well. Jo Cobb is going to be teaching us how to sew our own masks so we can become fashionistas and always have a suitable mask to match our outfit. We’ll provide all materials but feel free to bring your own fabric if you have favourite scraps you’d like to use up. We’re also going to be doing some mandala stone painting, which I can personally vouch is incredibly relaxing and somewhat addictive.

I’ve been in touch with the naval club and they assure me they have anti Covid measures in place, such as extra cleaning and a one way system. We will also make sure everybody is suitably spaced and there is plenty of hand gel available. However, we can only have 30 people so please will you book your space in advance and it will be first come, first served. Just reply to this email to register. I know some of you are being careful to avoid exposure so won’t want to come along, while others are desperate for a bit of normality and will be beating down the doors. 

Live Streaming
We will be streaming the meeting for those of you who can’t attend in person. More on this to follow. We will also be setting up a system so you can vote from home for your President of choice. Again, more info on this will follow, once we’ve worked out how on earth to do it!

Really looking forward to getting together again at long last.

Much love
