29TH SEPTEMBER 2020 SUFFOLK WEST FEDERATION OF WOMENS INSTITUTES  ZOOM  A.G.M.
I was delighted to represent Pakenham WI at this years on line meeting. Forty three participants from all the local institutes logged in and amazingly all went to plan. It was so good to see many familiar faces and discuss past, present and future events, the latter being virtually non- existent. My congratulations to the Park Farm team who did a great job organising the event.

12TH OCTOBER 2020 – PAKENHAM WI ZOOM COMMITTEE MEETING
We achieved another highly successful online meeting, well nearly. I kept loosing WIFI connection, Rosemary failed any connection and then we all got cut off after exceeding our free 40 minute time slot. But it was so lovely to see each other and chat face to face.
Obviously we are unable to plan ahead for the remainder of 2020, but if anything changes covid regulation wise with the help of Andrea we are determined to find a solution to a Christmas celebration get together.

Our November speaker did suggest doing her talk via Zoom, but we declined due to the logistics of setting up such an encounter were extremely daunting.

JANUARY 2021 – PAKENHAM WI 100TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Our celebrations of this auspicious occasion are looking more and more like a pipe dream, but hopefully during the year we will be able to have a celebration with all our friends and supporters.

Keep safe, keep well my friends
