NEWSLETTER NO 74 Wednesday 21st June 2017

Calenders and diaries for 2018 – need to be ordered now.

FACEBOOK – Our WI now has its own Facebook page which can be found by a search on Facebook for Neston Riverside WI. This page can only be managed by Judith or Philippa. There is also a closed group for members only. In order to join this group you have to be invited and you need to be on Facebook. Please could you give your contact details (email address and Facebook name) if you wish to be part of this group and to be able to comment and put pictures on.

ILLNESS - If someone in the WI is unwell we feel it would be a nice idea for us to show our sympathy and support but we rely on members keeping us informed. Please see Julie or any member of the committee if you know of anyone.

PREVIOUSLY:

SWG - This was a fun, profitable evening enjoyed by 75 people. Our WI worked really hard to provide the refreshments. Well done to those who helped.

RESOLUTIONS – An enjoyable day was had at the Echo Arena. Both resolutions were passed for the National WI to act upon.

CRAFT TASTER – There was very positive feedback from those who took part and made a variety of cards. A further event will be held nearer to Christmas.

HAUGHTON HALL – The sun shone at the start of the day but then the heavens opened and we retreated to The Hollies Garden Centre. It was certainly a memorable day.
