Firstly, a huge Happy New Year to all our members and the wider WI and Forest Hill communities.

Thank you to everyone who ran a session for us in 2016. It was our first full year as a WI and we enjoyed a range of activities from glass making, quilting, self-defence, singing and leadership – a diverse mix which we hope gave you all something new to think about or taught you a new skill or two. We’ve also enjoyed pub quizzes, craft clubs and taken part in our first bit of fundraising by selling delicious cakes at the Mayow Park fair.

We are delighted to announce some of our upcoming activities for 2017 – we will be updating the events diary over the coming weeks as we confirm the speakers and sessions but for those of you who can’t wait, we are currently planning sessions including:

Nutrition – January 9th

Gardening

Bread making

First Aid

Photography

If you have any contacts, or think you could run a session yourself, please do let the Committee know. If you’re not a member of the WI but would be interested in joining us for one of the sessions above, follow our twitter account for more details.

I hope 2017 brings you everything you wish for – let us know your resolutions and highlights from 2016 or if you’d like to write us a blog about what Forest Hill WI means to you, please comment below.

Don’t forget, your subscription for WI membership in 2017 is due in January. Please bring your cheques for £39 to the January meeting.
