A WI MEMBER FOR 30 YEARS!
Brenda Williams received her gift and recognition for her long association with the WI on 7th September in her beautiful garden. Sue Harding presented her certificate and gift on behalf of all her WI friends that span 30 years.
Brenda was delighted and wished to thank all her WI friends at Saddleworth WI and formerly at Wilsden WI Yorkshire for the years of friendship and kindness she has enjoyed. Brenda also paid special thanks to all those involved with providing ZOOM meetings during the COVID crisis and helping her with the “technology”.
We are asking for donations for THE MEDICINE PACKET RECYCLING PROGRAMME and we will be delivering them to Superdrug in Rochdale who are happy to recycle them. Not only are we helping the environment, but the waste we recycle also helps raise money for charitable causes. Bring your empty packs along to the next meeting.
ACCEPTED WASTE: Any brand of EMPTY medicine blister packets Waste that is NOT accepted: – Any form of unused, unopened and out-of-date medicine, including tablets, pills, lozenges and caplets as medicine should be returned to a pharmacy for safe disposal – Cardboard packaging as this can be recycled through your local council facilities – Any other medicine containers such as bottles, inhalers or sprays
We are continuing to host some Zoom meetings, and will review the situation on a regular basis.
TUESDAY TIFFIN CRAFTY CHAT mid-month at 3.30 pm. Bring along your beverage and cake of choice and/or bring any craft projects for an hour’s informal chat and catch up. New members welcome as it is a perfect opportunity to make new friends.
MONTHLY MEETING On the first Wednesday of the month at 7.00 pm. At the last meeting the technology was positioned to capture the speaker therefore members who were unable to attend the White Hart could still attend the meeting remotely. See Meetings Programme page for details.
“It is a pleasure to be part of this warm and welcoming WI group.“
Saddleworth WI know how to make the most of a bad situation. Did Covid19 stop us doing what we like to do best? Absolutely not!! Over the last eighteen months we have still had our Monthly Meetings with Guest Speakers, Book Group, Craft Group, Quiz Nights as well as a monthly Tiffin (just a chat with friends old and new) but on Zoom. We also arranged a few small group walks when we could which were very popular. Now that we can get together in the real world we have restarted face to face Monthly Meetings, Book Group meetings, Craft sessions and lunches out which has been wonderful.
