Thanks to you all for wearing your white ribbons and supporting our chosen charity, Solace, to help in these terribly sad times πŸ’”In the UK, 1 woman is killed every 3 days as a result of domestic abuse. Last year, 119 women were killed in the UK.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront, the alarming and devastating magnitude of this issue. We will continue to fight for all survivors to ensure they have the support and safety they need and continue to push for sustainable long-term funding for specialist support services.

Today is the final day of the UN's 16 Days of Action Against Gender-Based Violence. For information on how you can continue to help, please visit www.thewi.org.uk/media-centre/blog/blog-listing/2020/december/no-more-violence-against-women-look...

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 πŸ˜ƒ

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.... ...
