Neston Riverside WI Newsletter February 2022
Committee: Pauline Hignett, Philippa Pill, Janice Harris, Gill Hilditch, Jennifer Ricketts, Sue Kendall, Sue Evans, Christine Byrne and Lesley Williams.

Dear Members,
It seems so long since some of us met for a pre -Christmas meal at Pollards in Willaston. It was a good feeling to be out and socialising and thank you again to Andrea and Sue for all their hard work. I hope you all made good use of your bonus £5, mine made the wine taste sweeter!
It was sad but sensible not to meet in January but our Zoom meeting for those who could take part was surprisingly fun. Even with self marking my quiz score was really pitiful but made up for by all the chat. A huge thank you to Philippa who made all that happen.
This month we will meet as we used to do with a speaker and a business catch up. It would be appreciated if you could do a lateral flow test beforehand. Any other precautions are up to each individual to enable them to be as comfortable as possible.
We will have a sales table so if you have anything to pass on that would be appreciated. Is it too late for unwanted gifts? The money raised this month and in March will buy some more wool for our knitters to contribute to charitable causes.
We will have our suggestion box available for ideas as we need to know what members may wish to do as this year unfolds within the limits of life as we now know it.

Dear Members,
Thanks to Peter Cunnington’s talk I am looking at my garden in a new light but this torrential rain seems to have made the weeds grow bigger than my plants wherever they’re from.
As you are aware it is our Birthday Buffet next week which of course replaces our meeting. Janice has paid our bill so we can relax and enjoy. Please be there at 6.30 for 7.00.
Philippa and I had an enjoyable evening at Pauline Pollard’s poetry and prose meeting. The next one is on the theme of ‘The Sea’ so come along if you can.
We have now had three invitations from other WIs to join their activities which is generous of them and a good way forward for us. Seven of us are joining Willaston Hey on a visit to Lytham and Lytham hall there are still a couple of places left if anyone wants to go. Cost of the coach is £10.
So far two people have let us know they’d like to go to Jodrell Bank with Ness and Little Neston.
We have also been invited to join Eastham WI on a day out to Llandudno on September 28th stopping at Tweedmill outlet for coffee en route. The cost will be £15.
We will bring boards to Bromborough golf club for members to sign for those who are unable to join us please email Phillipa to let her know if you’d like a place.
It would be good to support these opportunities as we are too small as a group to have financially viable days out further afield. Please sign up if you can.

There are still two places left.
