"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 12th August

Lights, Lights, Lights


This may be our last Zoom meeting so we have made it a great one.

We will be joined by Tim, a multi nominated lighting designer who has worked in all forms of theatre and television.  He has lit over 350 productions throughout the world including the West End, Broadway and Opera Houses.  He also designs lighting for architecture and interiors.

Tim will be joining us just after he lights 'Singing in the Rain' and before he heads off to Denmark for his next job.

Purple Community Fund

Many of you will remember Lis who visited us to talk about the work the PCF charity does in the Philippines to help poverty stricken families and communities transform their own lives with our skills training, education, health and nutrition programmes.  It has been a tough year for everyone in the Philippines, we can continue to help them raise vital funds for their projects by collecting ring pulls from drinks cans and ties - they recycle and reuse these materials to make into products to sell. 

Once we start to meet up again in person please bring along your drinks can ring pulls and ties.  Thank you.
