We thought we’d take a step back at our July meeting and allow time for our members to get to know each other a little better. We started out by arranging ourselves in order of birthday and month: seems January is our most popular birth month! We then paired up and took five (read: fifteen!! (This is the WI, after all; we can talk!)) minutes to learn about our neighbours. We then took turns to introduce each other to the group. Who knew we had a former professional ballroom dancer and two members who have appeared on TV quizzes amongst our number? Nor did we!
We finished up with a fun ‘handbag treasure hunt’: which of the two teams could amass more of a list of items from their combined handbags? A bit of silliness!
We’d highly recommend this kind of meeting for other WIs – the format is up to you, but over a glass of wine and some nibbles we found it a fun and relaxing evening. Here are some of our members afterwards!
