Freya Rodger, a 55-year-old marketing executive, set herself the challenge earlier this year: to complete all 41 of the sports women can enter at Rio 2016, by the closing ceremony on August 21. Did Freya do it? Did she successfully complete 41 sports? Is she inspirational? Come to our March meeting and find out…
WHEN AND WHERE:
8pm (upstairs) at the Old Nun’s Head, Monday 19th March.
Chi Quong (Life Energy Cultivation) is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training. It’s a powerful type of health exercise, which has been practised for centuries by millions of Chinese people. It is based on repetitions of very precise sets of movements, specifically designed to benefit health on many different levels and we have Aidan coming to our WI to teach us the basics and help us rejuvenate our bodies and minds.
You’ll need to wear comfortable clothing for this activity. No previous knowledge or experience necessary just a whole load of enthusiasm to go with the flow.
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
It’s time to vote on our Resolutions 2018 and we look forward to having an informative and creative discussion on both resolutions (shortlist to be published shortly) to help us make up our minds.
To help us get through the AGM, we like to feed and water our members who are happy to join us for the evening. A buffet and drinks will be provided for all to enjoy!
Further information and more details will be available nearer the time.
This is your opportunity to join us on the committee as it’s the time we vote in the new Committee for the year.
If you’re interested on joining we’d love to hear from you. We will have vacancies for this years committee and these posts will published prior to our AGM in May.
It’s been three years since we established Nunhead WI and many of the current committee members are ready to stand-down. It’s time to welcome new members to our team who will provide us with enthusiasm and new ideas. You don’t need to attend every committee meeting, we accept not all of us can make every meeting.
The committee meetings are held every second Monday in the month and are hosted by one of committee members. We bring along nibbles and quite often have a glass wine or two to help us on our way. The meetings are informal and fun. Minutes are taken and distributed the following day (sometimes later). The meetings tend to last about two hours from 7.30 – 9.30pm depending on how many items are on the agenda.
If you’d like to know more about what’s involved you can speak to one of the current committee members at any meeting. Or contact us by email. We’d be happy to help.
