About the Event
This is our first in person meeting since March 2020 - and our first meeting at our new venue. The event will start at 7pm, so please arrive in advance to sign in (and say hi!).
This event was previously advertised as having an environmental theme, however and unfortunately our speaker is no longer available. Instead, there will be different social activities over the course of the evening - a perfect chance to catch up after many months of online meetings!
In the second part of the meeting, there will be an opportunity to do a bit of craftivism (other activities are available for the non-crafty!). We will provide materials for this, but if you crochet, please feel free to bring along a crochet hook (and some green yarn if you have any)!
Our famous bake sale will be returning, so please bring along cake and change for this (see Covid measures below for more details).
We want to ensure that our meetings are both safe and welcoming for our members. The following measures will be in place to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
- Masks - Face masks are required by the venue when walking around the building, We also encourage all attendees to the event to wear a face mask whilst walking around the room we have booked. Committee members and speakers are being provided with transparent face masks in line with guidance from Deaf Action.
- Sanitisation - We encourage attendees to the event to bring their own hand sanitiser, to use this regularly, and to wash hands regularly. We will be providing hand sanitiser at the entrance, the cake table, and around the room.
- Food & drink - Tea and cake is very important to our WI, and so we will be bring back our famous bake sale! We would love for you to bring your homemade bakes, although we do suggest that you bring pre-portioned items (e.g. cupcakes, wrapped biscuits). Any larger cakes, the committee will pre-cut and plate up in advance of sale. Crockery and cutlery is available from the venue, although you are welcome to bring your own mug if you prefer.
We are very excited to be meeting at our new venue. The address is:
