Addendum to September D4D email and meeting announcements.

Announcements from september 20th LWWI meeting for those that missed the meeting.

British Museum community preview afternoon Sunday 2nd October, to see Grayson Perry exhibition.
We will see it before it opens to the general public.

Pls let us know if you wish to attend as soon as possible as I shall request tickets tomorrow.
So far we have Diana, Vee, Kate, Helena,Denise, Jane all wishing to attend.
NB We do not know what time slot we will be allocated but it will be between 2pm and 5pm

Free Tea and VouchersJane has some PG vouchers and free tea bags which she brought to the meeting, we will put them out again at the next meeting for those interested.

Free BITE Cards
I brought some BITE cards which get you a 20% discount at various food outlets within train stations.
I have lots and left some in the locker which we will also put out next meeting.

The card never expires and its worth carrying one in your wallet if you travel by train and get peckish whilst waiting at the station. Can be used Nationwide.

There is a book club at St George's meeting next on 5th October at 7PM - All welcome.
The book is from the Booker short list it is: The sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes.
Barnes tackles the disappointments of ageing, the slipperiness of memory and the intensity of youthful experience, as narrator Tony remembers his brilliant schoolfriend Adrian and his difficult first girlfriend Veronica. The bequest of a diary puts all his comfortable certainties into question. (thanks Guardian for the synopsis)

We meet in the Vestry Hall (same room as the WI) on the first Wednesday of the month, glasses of wine available.
Last meeting they read Anita Brookner's Hotel du Lac, which generated a wide range of views and a lively conversation.

October meeting - Women and Iranian Art
Don't forget David Gleeson is coming to LWWI October meeting to talk about women and Iranian Art. He will be showing us lots of lovely images via a projector.

Vacancy at St George's

Calais trip - November

Interviews are next week so don't hang around.

Second Free Concert invitation at Purcell Room in October.
Allison Battye has kindly sent us the following invitation to attend a free harp recital.
I would also like to offer tickets to a harp recital that I am organising at the Purcell Room on 13th October 2011 at 7.15pm. The harpist is Maria Krushevskaya, currently principal harpist with the Bolshoi Ballet, and a sought after soloist, who won the Gold medal at the USA International Harp Competition. The tickets are free, and if anyone is interested, they can contact me on 0207 928 8451, allison@holywell.co.uk, or allison_battye@hotmail.com.

Urgent Appeal for Help - Situation rectified.
Ladies thank you so much for those of you who responded to my request on September 22nd, the lady concerned has found suitable accommodation until October 1st. She has asked me to express her sincere gratitude for your speedy responses and kind words.

Last but not least Open House weekend - 18th of September
Not quite the success we had hoped for although lots of interested enquires about the WI from the event. Phoenix Garden financially was much for successful an event for us. But its good to do things for our local community.

See you all in October, we suspect D4D email for October will now be very short
