WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY

"Joining the WI has given me the chance to have some me time - it is the best thing I ever did, wish I had done it years ago."

Thursday 10th June

TAXI DRIVER POET

Zoom meeting opens 7.00pm

Meeting link will be sent out the week of the meeting to members.

For many years James was a taxi driver in Nottingham where he used to entertain his passengers with original poems that he wrote himself. After having a seizure in 2013 he had to give up his taxi and turned instead to entertaining the ladies of the WI. His light-hearted approach to life and love has been enjoyed by nearly 200 WI groups and is bound to put a smile on your face.

Be sure to bring a favourite poem along to share with the group. 

Reminders:

Used stamps can be dropped to M&S Whiteley in aid of the charity Solent Mind

We are still collecting for The Purple Community Fund - both  men's ties and the ring pulls from drink cans.  Keep them safe until we can meet again in person please.
