Ely City WI

As we move into Autumn there is a small window to draw breath and reflect on some of the activities that Ely City WI have been a part of over the past few months. In addition to their monthly meetings, they have been busy with other projects, meet ups and initiatives and there doesn’t seem to be any sign of them slowing down!

Supporting World Bee Day, Loneliness Awareness Week, International Day of Friendship and World Alzheimer’s Day; members have been getting out and about in the community. Ely City WI are passionate about making a difference and these are just some of the things they are involved in. Most recently members made fidget quilts and twiddle muffs for local care homes and their residents who have dementia.

But it’s not all ‘work’, there have been plenty of social activities too at our monthly meetings which have included glass fusing, informative talks from national charitable organisations as well as good old fun and games and socialising.

Ely City WI are ready to kick off our new 2023-24 WI season with plenty to look forward to. This season we will be supporting No More Violence Against Women and preparing for our November Remembrance Craft Bomb, not to mention continuing with our ad-hoc litter picking and other small group events (think diners club, coffee catch ups, book club, craft group). We’ve also got our AGM coming up and Christmas Party with much more in between.

If you too would like to get involved with Ely City WI then we would love to meet you. Anything from raising awareness, meeting new people or just doing something different then you are more than welcome as a visitor to one or two of our meetings to see what we’re all about.

Our next meet is on Monday 9th October 7.15pm at The Old Dispensary, St Mary’s Street, Ely, CB7 4ER. Entitled “A Day in the life of an Environmental Health Officer”.

If you are interested in coming along you can join us in October for a six-month membership with fees being only £20.
