PAPWORTH EVERARD WI – UPDATE FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
Our plans for another Picnic in the Park for September have unfortunately been postponed due to the new restrictions introduced by the Government reducing the numbers of people meeting to 6. However, it is proposed that groups of 6 ladies wishing to share a coffee or lunch together will be arranging between themselves to meet up and have a chat and cuppa.
Several ladies met up earlier in the month to remember one of our most senior members, Doris Davey, who sadly died in July 2019. A beautiful rose, named Especially for You, was planted in our memorial garden by the library in her memory. We then shared memories of Doris over a coffee at the Café – self distancing of course! Many people in the community will remember Doris who was one of the most joyous and interesting people you could wish to meet. Doris is dearly missed by us all.
The ladies continue to support each other , some learning new skills – Joan is taking up the piano again – she explains – I had piano lessons until I rebelled at 14, since then I have tinkled away with just the right hand when I needed a tune so I am now relearning how to play with 2 hands!!
Pat has made a simple autumn wreath for the door with seed heads and berries from the garden – it not only looks cheerful and seasonal but the birds love it too.
The Committee continue to Zoom once a month to discuss future options and plans once things return to normal.
Keep well everybody with best wishes from PEWI
