It was good to see so many of you at our Salsa evening this week. I hope you all had fun. It was a lively evening and for those of you that didn’t manage to join us this month, we missed you.
Sub groups and Sign-up Sheets:
Plenty of you signed up at the Salsa night for the first lot of groups. We do need coordinators for some of them and will be contacting members separately with all the information you need. Please do let us know if you would like to be involved in setting up these groups as they won’t be able to run without coordinators! Don’t worry if your interest group is not in this first wave of sign-up sheets, please contact Davina for help to get started.
Remember, this is your WI, so we need you to suggest, participate and lead these groups. Here are some pointers to get you going -
pick a start date
pick a time, am or pm
a location to meet
be open minded and willing to try something different pass on your own skills and knowledge
STOP PRESS!!: Uckfield Divas Web site – Will be launched very soon. More on this on our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram, and there will be a run through of the site at the June meeting.
June 15th meeting:
Our first Charity speaker: Uckfield Food Bank & PRELOVED CLOTHES SALE
Did you know 24% of people in Uckfield live below the poverty line? It’s a worrying figure in 2016, so to show our support, we would like to donate
to the Uckfield bank. If you would like to, you can help by bringing one or more of the following items to our June meeting, which we will then take to the food bank:
Biscuits or snack bars Tinned vegetables Sponge pudding
Tinned rice pudding/custard Tinned meat/fish
We will organise delivery of the items to the local food bank the next day
Pre loved clothes sale:
An opportunity to sell up to 5 items of clean clothing including pairs of shoes, as well as buy from other members! These can be men’s, women’s or children’s clothing. Please bring items on hangers, we will have rails and tags for sellers (see illustration right) Please mark your clothes as shown
All unsold items can be donated to the British Heart Foundation shop in Uckfield if you would rather not take them back home. All money goes to the seller of the items.
Carol will run this event and will co-ordinate with you separately once your clothes have been sold. This is a trial event, and if successful we may do it again.
