Lea WI

by | 2 February 2021 | Gainsborough, Social Group, WI

December is normally a double event month for Lea WI members, with a Christmas party meeting as well as a Christmas dinner outing. Instead, in 2020 members received a surprise Christmas gift when their President Jackie Summer and committee members Marjorie West and Linda Brook delivered Christmas cards, a delicious mini Christmas tea, and a WI calendar to them. All Lea WI members were also invited to join together for a Zoom meeting in the evening for a chat and a little bit of festive fun (perhaps while enjoying a mince pie and a festive drink!).
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. In the meantime, the committee have been keeping in touch by telephone and 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. Hopefully, members will also continue to join the virtual Zoom meetings until the physical meetings in the village hall can safely begin again.
If you are considering joining the WI, and in view of the very limited activities, please contact Jackie on 01427 615382 for more information regarding the present virtual benefits of becoming a member of the WI at this difficult time.
