Sorry for the radio silence after our first meeting . The committee was BLOWN AWAY by the turnout and we’ve been reeling from it ever since.
The only slight downer of a fantastic evening was that we did reach the capacity of the hall and had to close the doors. If you turned up but couldn’t get in then we apologise profusely. Please come along to our October meeting – we have an extra room this month!
The evening started with coffee, tea & cakes followed by an introduction to the WI and Saltaire WI by our President, Fiz. Our secretary, Anna, then talked about the website, facebook and how to join! We then had a a pub quiz with three rounds about women, the WI & Saltaire. The winning team were lucky enough to take away with them a hamper of delicious jam!
The night ended with the signing of the constitution and the
opening of Saltaire WI.
Fiz, the president & Anna, the secretary signed the papers that made YOUR WI legal. It was a quite like signing the register at a wedding, which was a bit weird but, as a committee, we are so proud that have started a brand new WI and are totally over the moon that we had such a successfull evening.
And to cap it all off, Helena (the chairperson of the West Yorkshire Federation) gave our programme massive praise! So proud.
We are really looking forward to seeing you all next month (13th October @ 7.30pm) for an evening of crafts. Please bring your completed memberships forms with you. We will have another room this time so don’t worry about space!
Look forward to see you all!
