Back last year, the SHWI committee and members decided to cap our group's membership at 100 to make sure that we have enough room to stay in our current venue and also so we can still do all the things we've got planned that may become impossible with many more members.
We are both pleased and saddened to say that the limit has now been reached so we are no longer accepting new members this year.
Also, due to capacity restrictions we can only accommodate a maximum of 10 guests per meeting, so if you want a place you'll need to email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org with your request for a place and she can tell you whether we have any left or not. The guest fee remains £3 per meeting.
We have also started a waiting list for membership in 2011 so if you want to join it, drop Katie a line at email@example.com
Now we have these new rules, please only come to meetings if you are either a member, or are on the guestlist for that month. If you're not either, we will have to turn you away as we cannot break our venue capacity and insurance rules.
I know people may be disappointed by this but it's the best we can do at the moment, we never expected SHWI would be so amazingly popular within such a short space of time, so you've only got yourselves to blame!
There are also loads more WIs in Sheffield that would love some new members, go to http://www.thewi.org.uk/ for details.
Au revoir xx
