Yes, yes, yes. I know it's early to be showing a Christmas tree, but we want to make sure that you know what we are up to this month because, well, you know what it's like this time of year. Our December meeting is on 14th December at St Margaret's House, Old Ford Road, 7.30 for 8, for our annual Christmas Crafts event. Lots of crafty things to do and no doubt a tipple and other refreshments. Don't forget to bake some mince pies for our competition too - yes, there will be a prize for the winner! All welcome - £3 charge on the door for guests/ non-members.
Our coffee morning on Friday 18th December will be at the Geffrye Museum so that we can see their "Christmas Past" exhibition. Meet in the cafe inside the museum at 10.30. Free entry.
If you are passing by Bethnal Green Mission Church (Cambridge Heath Road, opposite the Museum of Childhood) on Saturday 11th December we'll have an EEWI tree on display there as part of their Christmas Tree festival. Pop in and see our tree - entry is free and you can bu tea and cake there too.
Finally, if you want a little virtual stocking filler, you might want to buy a copy of the WI version of Jerusalem which features our very own Harmonies member Gemma, Niki, Jo C and Cynthia. We are very proud of you, ladies.

OMG - the clocks have gone back and it's time for the AGM already! Our 16th November meeting is our Annual General Meeting - members only, please - when we will be rewarded for out rapt attention to the administration of our branch and election of officials etc by a delicious wine tasting, courtesy of the wine experts from Waitrose at Canary Wharf (thank you! thank you!). Non alcoholic drinks and complementary nibbles will also be available to taste. Remember to bring along the crafted wonders you have been making with your Cafe Direct coffee sacks for our competition, with prizes too. If you have not started snipping yet and need some inspiration, then go over to their flickr page and take a look at the wonderful things other WI members have already done - love those panniers. The meeting will be at our usual venue, St Margaret's House in Old Ford Road, next door to the Gallery Cafe.
Our coffee morning on Friday 19th November will be at Fresh, 275 Whitechapel Road which you will find immediately next door to the exit at Whitechapel Underground Station. It may look small on the outside, but there is plenty of room upstairs. We'll gather at 10.30am as usual.
If you are into crafting, here will be another meeting of the Curvey Crafters at the Salvation Army Hall on Kerbey Street, Poplar, E14 on Thursday 11th November, 7.30pm - 9pm. Just bring along whatever you are working on and share some good company. There is a small charge (£1.50) to cover the cost of refreshments.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
