Looking forward to getting together for our monthly musical meetings when the village hall reopens, I miss you all. Bob.  In the meantime maybe you could   “Write a sonnet about your Easter Bonnet!”

A year ago we cancelled our April meeting as we hurtled into the first Lockdown. Now, one year on, we are beginning to think about starting our activities again. Realistically, it looks as if our first event will happen in July, so here is the outline plan.
Wednesday  14th July                       
Evening visit to Primrose Gardens, Steeple Aston. This will be self-drive event with the cost to be confirmed nearer the time.                                                                    Saturday 21st August                  
Flower and Vegetable Show – a low-key version
Wednesday    8th September           
Afternoon visit to Nicholsons Nursery with a talk.                          
Wednesday  13th October                
An evening talk in the Village Hall at 7.30pm –                  “The Restoration of Stowe Gardens”  by Barry Smith.

‘Ramblers and Walking for Health’ are hoping to re-start health Walks from 12th April provided that the Government’s Road Map stays on track.  This means that our village walks would be able to resume with effect from Thursday 15th April.

Before going any further please accept sincere apologies for a repeat of February’s article in last month’s issue. As far as the Covid problem is concerned it is still there but we are definitely beginning to look forward to a change in life generally and for a reinvigorated WI. More of us must be feeling a little safer (though still not completely mask free) having had the vaccination – and for some the booster as well; and possibly we might soon even be able to set a date for our next meeting – a celebration meeting?

Before that is a reminder of the annual subscription due at the end of March. The committee have agreed to waive the portion of the fee that comes to Aynho WI reducing the amount payable from £44 to £22.40. Unfortunately because of the charity law we are not allowed to waive the amount going to NFWI and the federation.  More information will be emailed to you and if you don’t have an email account a note will be pushed through your door.
The Committee is already thinking and planning for some future happenings and, as always, is very happy to listen to any ideas from its members and possible future members. Till we meet again, take care, keep calm and keep safe.

Aynho writers continues its emailed writings each month.

In March we had a mixture of pieces. Some involved “Sunset”, and others an old family photo, with some unknown person within it. The quality was wonderful. Let us hope that this month is as good. The topics are: “A story about a ‘staycation’ holiday. Real or imaginary, the best you’ve ever had, or the most horrific.”  and    “April Showers bring May flowers”  They will be shared on 10th April.
