Do look out for these short news updates as information/ updates are coming in regularly from branches.
Today I’ve just been out at a small WiF Coffee Morning in the garden. It was so good to catch up, and see other members in person. So much to catch up on and to share experiences, review different face coverings, talk about what our churches are doing and our trips to hairdressers or new skills learned at home and so much more. Our branch has had 3 of these running today, and will do so again regularly over the coming summer weeks. They have been very well received indeed, and much appreciated especially for those who have not had much “people” contact.
Here’s some news from another branch on what they have been doing:
“Lockdown put us all on-line and we are proud to report that as technical skills improved, in many ways isolation brought us closer together. Our on-line meetings addressed new ways of expressing fellowship and after establishing which members needed what, useful contributions for an information directory and with possibilities for planned speakers still to provide talks on-line, we set about launching a weekly “sharing” programme of prayers, poems, music, store cupboard recipes, quizzes, slideshows of blossoming gardens and more.
The marvellous engagement by our members was inspirational.
The scheduled reflection for Ascension went ahead, on-line of course! The preparations for VE Day were completed, using members contributions, but that presentation has been postponed until lockdown is fully lifted.”
We would welcome any news ( just a short paragraph) on what your branch has been doing since lockdown, plus any photographs of activities, creations, art work etc. Do please send them to [email protected]
