Our final meeting of 2012 was a busy one as always! We were delighted to welcome 42 new members to Seven Hills WI, taking us very close to our 2013 member limit of 125. As has become tradition, I hosted my annual Christmas quiz and the winners (it had to go down to the tie break…it was tense) were the delightfully-named team ‘Specs and Tits’. Well done ladies! We then got to have a go at willow weaving as the lovely Sue taught us how to manipulate the willow and make pretty Christmas decorations with it. Jollity aside, it was a meeting tinged with sadness as it was our last at St Matthew’s Hall, which has been our home since October 2009. As much as we love St Matt’s, we have outgrown it, and we are so looking forward to our first meeting in our new home – Electric Works – on Thursday 17 January. It has a helter skelter, what’s not to love?!
We’re looking forward to a new year filled with more SHWI fun, making new friends and learning new things and I’d like to thank all our members for helping to make our group so successful. A huge thanks must also go to our wonderful committee who work so hard to make sure things run smoothly – thank you ladies! Here’s to 2013! Lindsay, SHWI President Photos by Laura Bainbridge
