Summer Update!

As you know, there was no monthly meeting this month due to our summer break.  However, MHWI members have still been making the most of the lovely, warm summer weather and enjoying various social events.

In particular, on Saturday, 6th July, fourteen of us put on our ‘glad rags’ (as you can see from our header image above) and set off for Leicester Racecourse to enjoy Ladies’ Day.  We spent an exciting afternoon watching the races, with some winners and losers, all helped along with a glass or two of  Pimms!

The races were then followed by a great live performance from Will Young.

Afterwards, music from Ana Matronic inspired some members to join in the dancing!

Monthly Meeting – Wednesday 26th June 2019 – Social Evening with Food and Drink!

Glass bottoms

Change of plan for this Wednesday’s meeting.   We are not having a cookery demonstration.   As it’s our last meeting prior to the Summer break in July, we thought it would be a lovely idea to have a summer social instead.   So, we will be providing the wine and cheese, you just need to bring your plates and glasses!

Our social evenings are a great opportunity to get to know your WI colleagues a bit better and make new friends.
