Wythit WI Activities/Meetings in 2018:
We hope you enjoy looking at our pictures and event details below. For other years please select the following links:
The Wythit girls were treated to a fabulous night out at the Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond to see the Wizard of Oz performance. A really fun night was had by all.
8 people present played in pairs in a knockout tournament. Good fun was had by all. Majority of people had not played before. Tournament won by Pat and Christine, well done. Good opportunity to get to know everyone a little better. 1 new lady came as guest tonight and is joining as a member; welcome to Christine.
First we held our AGM and summarised our activities in 2017 then discussed how we are perceived as a group. Good feedback received about how welcoming Wythit is. We elected our Officers and Committee then heard about local Federation and National Federation business. We received updates on National Campaigns and Resolutions. After some democratic discussions about other Wythit business we wound things up and moved onto our planned activity. Unfortunately the Dru Yoga session planned by Nik could not go ahead as the room at the Black Swan was being refurbished and large tables had been moved in, so not enough room for yoga. Nik told us about Dru Yoga, how she had discovered it and talked of the benefits gained. It is hoped we will be able to do this session at a later date. Thanks to Nik.
Unfortunately with the bad weather this had to be cancelled. We are looking to rearrange this fun event.
Make Social Media work for you
Samantha Jennings, founder of Made by Mummy Markets, a member of RomanbyWI and very knowledgeable about Marketing and Social Media joined us to talk about Facebook and other Social Media platforms. Specifically how to use them to promote a business or group, like buy, sell and swap or selling home made crafts, or attracting new WI members etc. She also touched on some security and privacy for personal profiles. She described the other platforms and talked about the differences. She managed to fit in quite a lot in the time we had and gave a good grounding in whats what. We asked loads of questions too! A very informative and enjoyable session.
