Although I have lived in Market Harborough for 14 years, I have worked full time for most of that period and didn’t know many people. An article on line, shown to me by my daughter, prompted me to call the MHWI contact, Hazel Stacey. Before I knew it I had attended my first committee meeting and had a sense of purpose locally. Several months later I attended a WordPress course at work and used this website as a practice for the one I wanted to set up locally for my employer. You know the rest.
Being a committee member has enabled me to contribute ideas and take part in organising and assisting at numerous events over the last 2 and half years. Making things happen and knowing that lots of women enjoy attending, plus meeting other people, is very rewarding. Committee members pay their annual fee just like any other member. We attend a committee meeting once a month, usually in a pub. We urgently need new committee members who can bring their own ideas and give some time each month to help make meetings and social events take place. Our very own Hazel is stepping down, too, this autumn. So, if you think you would like to step up and join the committee, please speak to a committee member (we wear the blue sashes) or Contact us. You’re very welcome to come to a committee meeting, not only to meet us, but to see what it’s all about.
