June Happenings in the West End

Now that June's here, our next meeting is right around the corner. On the 19th of June Kusuma Barnett, Head of Volunteers at the British Museum, will come and regale us with her stories and insights about one our city's major attractions. Kusuma has worked with the British Museum for nearly twently years, and has recently been awarded an MBE for her efforts!

On Sunday June 17th at 12:15 there will be a "meet the neighbours" lunch at St.George Bloomsbury. Please come to this great opportunity to get to know your community, and bring food and drink!

Anyone interested in volunteering at the Oxfam Bookshop on 12 Bloomsbury Way is still encouraged to do so. An application can be downloaded here. Oxfam requires a minimum 4-hour-a-week commitment, but these can be arranged flexibly to best suit your schedule.

Anyone interested in completing their online Food Hygiene Course can find information here. The course requires a minimum of 8 hours learning and a 45-minute multiple choice exam. The WI will fund volunteers.

Keep in mind that our summer garden party is rapidly approaching! Please bring your ideas to the next meeting so we can start to get the ball rolling on our plans. Also remember that July's meeting will feature a talk from Richard Knight of Camden's Local Studies and Archives Centre, who will dazzle us with his knowledge of the St Giles and Bloomsbury areas.

That's all for now - we hope to see you all at 6:30 on June 19th at Dragon Hall!
