Women’s Institute Lockdown Update – September 2020

There are signs that the village and its people are tentatively returning to a few of the
activities that have been absent for the last few months and Wednesday saw a group of
intrepid WI members, dutifully socially distanced, sitting beneath some very useful
canvas cover on the sports field.

Drab weather maybe but lively chat in that party, as friends who had not met since lockdown greeted one another with smiles and laughter. No business, no speaker but a real warm enjoyment of each other’s company.

The rain dripped steadily as news was exchanged and plans suggested for a repeat meeting if a suitable site and reliable weather could be forecast. And of course, there was cake!

All WI members are staying touch with The Hive, the on-line fortnightly WI magazine. Find it on the Suffolk West Federation website.

This month it details a list of new virtual talks available on line, available tomembers and non-members also.
