Catch up on what’s happening at Market Harborough WI

Clare Farquhar, our lively new President, brought members up to date on several ‘Whow’ activities forthcoming at Market Harborough WI earlier this week.  If you missed them, or there were just too many to take them all in, then carry on reading:

Refreshments rota – committee member Jill is no longer in post.  Members were asked to volunteer each month to help with refreshments.  After that, everyone will be put on the rota (your name will appear about every 2 years with current membership).  A committee member will be on hand, if you are unsure what to do.  Contact us to volunteer now.

Barn dance to mark WI Centenary year in 2015.  Disbanded for a variety of logistical and cost reasons.  Do you have an idea for a  celebration?  Contact us.

Embroiderer for MHWI ‘brick’ – Gemma kindly offered to cross stitch this and put us on the Centenary wall hanging at the Leicestershire and Rutland Federation of WIs in Leicester.  Let us have a picture of the ‘brick’ when you’ve finished, Gemma.

Denman Dip – names and £1 to Fiona Thompson to stand a chance of winning this 2 night treat worth £250.

Tea and Tents 2015 – amazing national event all booked up just days after these became live.  Put your name on the waiting list now.

Social Media – definitely the way forward for finding out what’s planned and to share information with other Market Harborough WI members.  Like us now on Twitter and Facebook.  Follow us on this website (click link on News page to lower right hand side).  Make sure Patsy, our membership secretary, has your up to date email.

Social event in January 2015 – watch the News page for details of new event being planned.

Make a fascinator – 13 May 2015, cost £25, deposit of £5 needed by January meeting to Fiona Thompson.


Help us to remove the old Facebook group

Are you still a member of the original MHWI Facebook group?  If so, we would like you to remove yourself, and follow us on the new group.  Then we can close the old group.  About 30 people still need to do this.
