Pakenham WI News - April 2021

Pakenham WI

The  Zoom meeting extended out to Hull this month when we welcomed our dearest member Celia as part of the team from the depths of gods own county, Yorkshire. Celia had done a brilliant job as our programme secretary for many years and left a huge hole in the team so it was fab to see her in her new home.

It was wonderful to plan for the long awaited reunion in July, when we hold a Garden Party Supper/AGM/100th Birthday Bash. Rumour has it that the evening will be covered by the BBC !!!!

We were delighted to hear that the commemorative bench for our 100th birthday will soon be in place outside the village hall, my grateful thanks to the kind help of Henry and the PPC.

We also look forward to joining forces with Christopher and the church team for an Autumn Jumble Sale on October 16th 2021. It should be a great sale and so beneficial to both our fund raising efforts.
BBC lunchtime and evening news
I was delighted to appear on the BBC lunchtime and evening news last month highlighting the last indoor WI meeting before lockdown with the wonderful alpacas.

Hooray, hooray our next committee meeting will be live, outdoors at Gill's new summerhouse patio on the 18th May, with a substantial supply of wine and togetherness. The most wonderful prospect.
