Well – it’s been a funny old year plus, but Bosham WI has managed to keep going – by dint of meeting on line – by ZOOMING! It makes for hilarity sometimes when everyone is talking at once, but our Zoom co-ordinator has kept us in order and at the end of the meeting moves us into ‘Breakout Room’ of 4 or 5 people where one gets to chat with someone you wouldn’t necessarily meet at a busy face-to-face meeting. Our Zoom speakers are very good. The only thing missing is the TEA AND CAKES!
COVID-19 has put paid to trips out and to our sub-groups meeting, but they will be resuming as soon as possible. Sub-groups include Mahjong, Music, Scrabble, Crafts, Walking, Discussion and Books. But there is always room for more!
We support our local Church fête every year with jams, pickles and cakes in the typical WI style, but we’re not really into ‘Jam and Jerusalem’ – more quirky and doing things in our own inimitable fashion.
BOSHAM WI was formed in 1921 and, so, is 100 years old this year. We are hoping to be able to celebrate in lots of ways with all our members, together with putting on an in-house pantomime in December.
We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 2.30pm (except August) and we are really hoping to be back in Bosham Village Hall on WEDNESDAY, 1ST SEPTEMBER.
If you should like to attend the Zoom meetings until that time, or require any further information, please contact Rosemary Keating on 01243 839953
