Autumn Greetings

Since March 2022 I have enjoyed my role as President and our return to members’ meetings and engaging in group events. My sincere thanks to the Committee who have supported me in my role as President up to this October and particular thanks to Hazel and Helen with their incredible secretarial skills. Carol stepped forward to take on the role of Co-President with me, from October 2022 and as agreed we are now sharing it for a while. Members, if you have any ideas for outings, events, speakers, local publicity of our WI or joint ventures with the local community etc please let us and the Committee know. Some of those ideas that have come to fruition this year include the successful games and craft meeting, an enjoyable outing to Margate and having a stall at the Sanderstead Village WI’s “Purley GrowBaby” coffee morning. We have lots to look forward to as a thriving WI including our AGM on 2nd November, the Christmas Lunch on 2nd December, our Christmas party on 7 December and a visit to the Museum of Home on 8th December. Carol and I look forward to seeing many of you at these events.
