November meeting: Tonight, 15th November

Tonight is our AGM, when we'll be joined by a representative of Middlesex Federation to review the year and vote in the committee for 2018. It's not too late to think about joining the committee, and helping run LWEWI for the next year!


After the AGM we'll be unleashing our inner divas with a drama workshop led by Matilda Thaddeus Johns, the founder of Tie-Dye Drama.



We're in the Upper Vestry Hall of St George's Bloomsbury from 6.30pm until about 8.30pm, business part of the meeting will begin at 7pm sharp.

We have been offered Community Evening Preview Tickets for the British Museum on Saturday 2nd December at 7pm.

If you're not a member, one of the perks of joining LWEWI is the chance to visit British Museum exhibitions for free as part of their community partnership work.

October Round-Up

October has been and gone, the clocks have gone back and the nights are drawing in... it's definitely feeling a bit more chilly out there in the mornings too!

We had our regular Craft Club and monthly meeting in October, as well as a visit to the British Museum to the community preview of the new Living With The Gods exhibition.

At Craft Club we got into the festive spirit a little early, and made Christmas wreaths out of ribbons, rags and embroidery hoops:



At our regular monthly meeting we were treated to a talk all about the local history and characters of Museum Street by Geraldine Beskin, owner of Atlantis Books on Museum Street and host of our Craft Club.


Coming up in November:
Craft Club on 7th November, where we'll be trying some simple book-binding, and you can make & take home a concertina-bound book.

Montly Meeting on 15th November, which is our AGM followed by a drama workshop.

September Round-up

Now we're into October, things are definitely feeling more autumnal! September saw the last of our bake sales for the year (with the exception of mince pies at the St George's Carol Service, of course).

In the last update we already mentioned September's craft club, and the successful bake sale at Phoenix Gardens. Since then, we've had our monthly meeting, complete with Morris Dancing, and another bake sale, this time for Open House at St George's on 16th September.

Morris Dancing

Thanks to Tish and Mick for coming along to lead us in another dance (the name of which I've totally forgotten!) - no video this year, you'll be delighted to hear!




Open House

Thanks to everyone who helped out at Open House this year, baking and selling our wares to visitors to the Church.
