Huge thanks to all who came along today to our first SRWI meet up since lockdown ❤️
In lieu of our annual garden party, around 20 of us braved the chilly Bank Holiday weather for a socially distanced catch up at the Hollow Ponds.
All brought along their decorated pennants for our "Recollect & Reconnect Bunting" project which we added to those sent in by post. Such a great variety of designs that our committee crafters will now stitch together with rainbow ribbon to commemorate this unusual time 🌈
It was so lovely to enjoy a can of Pimms & a long overdue face to face catch up 😃

Two years ago committee member Carmela Crute Jones gave a talk about bee friendly gardening. It took me a while but I've finally finished the bee /bug hotel it inspired me to make. Made entirely from leftover wood, paint, nails and filled with materials from the garden /walks! ... See MoreSee Less

Hi Stoners! Some of you may already know about this but if not, there's a Public Zoom meeting on Wednesday 22nd July on the latest developments with the new Whipps Cross hospital. It's getting to crunch time on the design and scope of the place with the appointment of architects and the demolition of the old nurses' home. If the design isn't right, we'll end up with the wrong hospital. All the details are in the attached flier - if you want to know more, please get in touch with Leytonstone inhabitant but still only a Wanstead WI member - really must sort out that dual membership.... ...

Face Mask Project Update:

I'm delighted to tell you that crafters from Stone Rangers, Stow Roses and their friends have now made an astonishing 706 face masks for our collaborative project! ❤️

The council are delighted and have ensured they all have a worthy home. As well as the initial volunteers they wanted to protect, the masks have also gone to the local bin collection teams, providing an essential service but so often overlooked for protection 🚮

Thank you so much to everyone involved!!
