Report from Lockdown July/August 2020


Hello everyone

Despite the lockdown easing somewhat, Papworth Everard are keeping safe and no monthly meetings are currently taking place.

We continue however to hold our monthly Zoom Committee Meetings and at our last meeting decided to arrange a ‘Picnic in the Park’ afternoon for those who wished to join in.  This will take place on the green in Papworth Park on Sunday afternoon August 23rd.   Many members were delighted at the thought of having the opportunity to meet and chat with each other again after such a long period of time, especially those members who have been unable to socialise at all during the last 3-4 months and for those who live alone.

Our choir continues to hold Zoom practice meetings weekly and we continue to keep in touch with each other with regular phone calls etc.  Many members have become very ‘crafty’ during lockdown and here are a few of the beautiful embroidery and knitted items made by one of our members Joan, and also a couple of wonderful paintings by members Gill and Ann.  It’s never too late to learn something new!!!

The highlight for members in August was a Picnic in the Park on Sunday afternoon.   Over 20 members turned out with their chairs and picnic – safe distanced of course – to enjoy a great afternoon of chatting and catching up with each other after such a long period of time.  This was the first gathering of the WI members since lockdown – the weather was bright and sunny and the rain only kicked in as we were leaving.  We are hoping to arrange another similar event in September before the weather becomes too cold.

Take care and keep safe and very best wishes to you all from PEWI
