Lea WI members recently received a surprise gift when their president, Jackie Summers, and secretary, Marjorie West, delivered a delicious mini strawberry cream tea with a personal thank you note. The thank you was for members patiently accepting the fact that there have been no meetings for them to attend during these difficult times.
The committee continue to review the Government’s COVID-19 restrictions and the strict social distancing rules in place at Lea Village Hall when considering whether it can again safely hold meetings for their members, many of whom are in the more vulnerable age groups. Instead, the committee keep in touch by telephone or a regular newsletter email update from Jackie. Members are also welcome to telephone any committee member if they need anything or just to chat. There are also regular updates and news on the Lea WI Facebook page.
If you are considering joining the WI and in view of the very limited activities at the moment, there is presently an offer of a taster membership called ‘Try the WI’ for just £10.75 which will last to the end of April 2021. To find out more please contact either Jackie on 01427 615382 or Marjorie on 01427 616070.
