January 2024 newsletter

Here comes 2024. We all hope for peace and good health to all.

Maybe one or two of you have applied to go to the Albert Hall on 5 June? It’s an amazing experience.

Our lovely Logo has been enlarged and we now have a QR Code that will take you straight to our website. It’s clever stuff, all done by my son. The website is maintained by Maria, who was our Treasurer and a member for many years.
Please have a go and see if you can get to the website via the QR Code.

You may like to know that I posted a video of one of the songs at our Christmas meeting on an Abingdon Facebook page. It has received 1500 plus hits with many compliments. It would not all happen without a lot of planning. The committee worked their socks off – thank you. I hope some of you had a chance to chat to Catherine Blaxhall our WI Adviser. She will visit again in March for our AGM.
The meal at Cosener’s was delicious and very well presented.
I took the goods donated to The Gatehouse in Woodstock Road, Oxford just before Christmas. It’s a sobering experience to see so many people that need both food and clothing.
