Our last meeting of 2011 was a busy one...we opened membership up to everyone at the meeting and were shocked by just how many new people turned up to sign up for 2012 - We signed up more than 40 new people at the meeting taking our member total to 101! The bad news is that makes us full so we can't sign up any more members this year. We've been overwhelmed by the continued interest in SHWI and from the amount of emails and messages we've had, we could probably have signed up 200 members this year but unfortunately our venue is just not big enough!
For those lucky people who managed to bag a space, we've got an exciting year planned, starting with 'A Brief History of Knickers' talk on Thursday 19 January.
As last year, we are operating a guest list for non-members to attend, this costs £3.50 per meeting. We have limited space due to venue capacity restrictions so can only offer a spot to those on the guest list, email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a place on the list (we operate this on a first come first served basis). NON-MEMBERS: PLEASE DO NOT COME ALONG TO A MEETING UNLESS YOU HAVE A CONFIRMED GUEST LIST SPACE, IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SPACE YOU WILL BE TURNED AWAY, SORRY!
As well as signing up all our new members (good work Vicky and Leanne!) we had mulled wine and mince pies, my annual quiz and secret Santa, a great way to see out 2011!
I hope you all had a very happy Christmas and I look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon.:)
