March 2019 – Women Rise and the WI online

For our March meeting we mixed it up a bit. We started proceedings with a brief presentation from Priyanka and Heidi of local group Women Rise, based at Jackson’s Lane theatre in Highgate, and recipients of our charity fundraising efforts in 2018. Priyanka let us know all about the courses the group runs for women, including theatre and circus arts, self-defence, yoga and confidence building. Heidi then led us in scarf juggling… harder than it looks but a lot of fun!

We were then joined by Jules and Yve from Digital Team of the Middlesex Federation of Women’s Institutes. Jules reminded us of the myriad ways we can interact with the WI online, including accessing information for members via MyWI on the NFWI’s website, and finding out more about activities run by the Federation on its website and Facebook sites. Thank you Jules and Yve!
