Abberley WI

Update July 6th 2020

Although lockdown is easing, the current guidelines do not allow us to hold our July or August meetings - on top of that The Village Hall is still closed to groups like ours. We are hoping that we will be able to hold our September Meeting and will make a decision nearer the time. It will be dependent on the Village Hall rules as well as Government guidelines. There will be many practicalities to consider although we are all very keen to return to our monthly get-togethers!

If we can go ahead the following talks are planned;

September - Overland from Alaska to Argentina by Manuel Queiroz

October - St Richard's Hospice by Claire James

November - Annual Meeting and Charity Shop Challenge

Although the weather has been a bit gloomier recently members are still walking and gardening and contributing to our lively Whatsapp Group. The easing of lockdown rules has made it easier to see family and friends which has been much welcomed. 'Bubbles' have been created!

The Knit and Natter group again had a virtual meeting, showing examples of their handiwork while enjoying their own tea and cake. The Book Group held a Zoom meeting in June to discuss The Red Tent by Anita Diament. This novel tells the story of Dinah from the Old Testament, weaving the few known facts into a study of the families and the cultural life of women of that period. It was found fascinating by most of the group although one or two ladies were not so hooked - but that is what Book Groups are for - to open us up to new authors and ideas!

Our Calendar 2020 is available on the website - unfortunately we are still not sure if Autumn events will be able to take place. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

The latest reading list for Book Club is now available.
