July 2020

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) emergency and government directives all meetings, visits, coffee mornings and meals are cancelled until further notice :

In the meantime, please see the monthly letter below, from Chris Gibson our President



Dear fellow member,

Some positive news: rather than January your next subscription will now be payable in April 2021.  We all agreed that this is a welcome decision by NFWI. It does, however, mean that we’ll have no more income until then so donations we would like to be making to local good causes are postponed until later this year.  We are sending a cheque for £50 to ACWW as you had donated this amount in March.

GFWI calendars and diaries are available from Sue so please call her on 504433 or e mail her if you wish to make a purchase. They have to be paid for when ordered.  We are pleased to congratulate Pauline Bishton who has photographs in next year’s calendar again!

We’ll be delivering your September newsletters this year.


Our first Zoom meeting was held on 13th of this month so thank you to Tracy and Lorna for setting this up and to you if you participated by “Zooming” in.  I know it was a very successful and enjoyable evening.

Lorna has plans for more meetings in the Autumn. Anne has been sending you details of Denman Zoom meetings which I know some of our members are enjoying.


 Men in Sheds would be happy to accept cakes.  If you fancy baking please let us know as we already have a rota in place.  While I’m on the subject of cakes, we have received an e mail from Bath RUH thanking you if you baked for them.


Masks are still available so Pam and Linda would like to hear from you if you’d like one.  On the social front, Jan has deferred visits until 2021 and Ali is still hoping our Christmas supper can go ahead.


These are some of the topics that were discussed at our committee meeting this month.  We shall be holding a committee meeting in August this year so if you would like to suggest any activities we could offer everyone, despite the current constraints, please do get in touch.  We’d welcome any ideas you have.


With very best wishes from all of us committee members,




Coffee morning at the Snooty Fox dates are: 

Postponed until further notice


The next meeting is on: Postponed until further notice

Come along at 7:30pm to join us and meet everyone!


A note from our President:

Apart from our monthly meetings, we enjoy each other’s company at many “extra curricular” activities.  Do have a look at “What we do”.

We always welcome new ideas and new members.  Please come along and meet us.
