What will probably be listed in the books as one of the more dramatic membership years in the history of the WI is coming to a close. We have all faced plenty of worry, change and uncertainty, but at the Market Harborough WI have have tried to put a cheerful spin on things and have carried on with our program as best we could under the circumstances.
Since it will still be some time before we can meet again in person we throught we’d round things off with a bag of Feel-Good Goodies for each member to cheer them up while we wait for spring sunshine and the start of the new membership year.
Committee members went on the hunt for useful items such as hand cream and sanitiser, note pad and pen, book marks, labels and coffee bags while shops where briefly open last year and the craft club went into overdrive to make a cream egg cover for each bag. See below for the ‘Egg Army’ in all its glory before they were put into the bags…
The whole stash was then sorted, bagged up and distributed this week by committee members using their excercise hour. The feedback has been great and we hope that our members are enjoying the gifts. Watch this space for the Sunflower Competition later this year when we look to find the member that has managed to grow the tallest plant from the seeds in the gift bag!
We look forward to a new membership year full of interesting meetings and club activities – be it online via Zoom or – hopefully in the not too distant future – back in the hall in person.
Stay safe out there and see you at the next monthly meeting on the 24th March – Zoom access details will be emailed out shortly.
