Milstead w Frinsted Newsletter December 2017.
What a brilliant meeting last night. Mandy is such a great entertainer, she certainly can tell a story! Maybe we should go up and see her show?
Don’t forget it is the Tunstall Christmas tree festival this week until Sunday.
Milstead Church has its Christingle Service this Sunday at 5.30pm. Always a lovely service.
The resolutions have been announced for 2018. Your voting slip is in your WI Life magazine. Put your cross beside the one you think is the strongest resolution, cut it out and bring it to the January meeting. Don’t worry if you forget we will have spare voting slips at the meeting. The resolutions are:
- Positive body image in a digital age
- Stop FGM
- Raising awareness of modern slavery
- Mental health matters
- Healthy mouth healthier body
At our February meeting we will have a speaker from Swale Friends of the Earth to tie in with the Show the Love campaign. We will be making something to show that we care for the planet, as we did last year with the heart brooches. If anybody has any good ideas for next year, something that we can all do, can you let me know please? I do have a couple of ideas. It should be a good meeting.
Thank you for all the food you brought along last night. I will take it along to the foodbank next week.
It’s not too late to add your name to the Christmas Wreath workshop on Tuesday 12th December 2-4pm. If you want to join us can you let me know? It costs £25 which will include all materials and cake and mulled wine!
If you didn’t put your name on the list for the Social Evening on the 19th January at 7pm you can either do it at the next meeting or just let myself or Marcelle know. This evening is open to all, so bring along friends and family for a fun evening.
The walking group will start next year with a walk around Faversham as the weather may be bad and we will at least be able to take shelter if necessary. The possible dates are Wednesday 24th Jan or Sunday 4th Feb. If you are interested can you let us know with your preferred date?
We will be visiting Sittingbourne Dogs on Friday 23rd February, time to be announced. The evening will cost £26.95 for a three course meal, entrance and a race card. I will need a £5 deposit per person at the January meeting please, but in the meantime if you didn’t put your name down last night can you please let us know ASAP. Partners are welcome to attend.
Please note that the January meeting will take place on the second Thursday on the 11th. Sue will be demonstrating quilling and it will be a hands on meeting. Can you please bring along your own scissors if you have them?
I know you all want to join me in wishing Iris, Diana and John all of our love and a speedy recovery. Our thoughts are with you all especially at this time of year.
May I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and peaceful New Year.
