Share the love
Due to the current restrictions we find ourselves once again unable to take part in our normal everyday activities and who can believe it is nearly a year ago since the first lockdown!
Our members continue to support one another by way of telephone calls, quizzes, poems and various news items and our Committee continue to meet monthly on Zoom to discuss future plans for the members once we can return to our monthly meetings. We are planning to hold a Zoom WI Meeting again in February for the members with a short talk on ‘Wellbeing during the pandemic’ and a fun quiz. This will hopefully be an opportunity for those able to join to chat with friends who they have not seen for some considerable time and certainly have a few laughs at the same time.
With Valentine’s day looming we also have something up our sleeve for members to enjoy in order to ‘spread the love’ with their friends.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY- MAY YOUR DAY BE FULL OF LOVE AND HOPE
FROM PAPWORTH EVERARD WI
We hope everyone enjoyed a happy and peaceful Christmas, although I am sure many of you had to make changes to your plans due to the government’s new restrictions.
Prior to Christmas members rose to the challenge to help make items to be included in parcels that were being distributed by the Papworth Community Group. A wonderful variety of items from handmade cards, handmade xmas labels, beautiful knitted and crocheted tree decorations, together with handmade xmas pot pouri bags, and so the list goes on. Thanks to all the ladies that gave up their time at very short notice.
A fun Christmas Face Covering Competition among the members took place with several ladies taking part. Photographs were taken of all the entries and sent to the members to make their choice. The winner as you can see was the lovely mask made by Joyce.
A Christmas gift of scrumptious christmas biscuits were delivered personally by the Committee to all the members by way of a thank you for all their support over the past very difficult year.
Our choir had a festive Zoom Christmas Sing Along, together with a quiz which put us all in a great Christmas mood.
Finally, members were invited to a Zoom meeting to give them a chance to see other members and to offer each other Christmas wishes. Several members joined in but we are hoping to make this a regular event each month and to also arrange events that members can take part in on Zoom going forward.
We look forward to 2021 which will hopefully be a more positive and fruitful year for the WI and for the whole of the Community.
