Wednesday 6 May saw WWIB host its second lockdown meeting using Zoom. It was great to get together and hear how everyone is doing during these unprecedented times. As always, the inventiveness, imagination and sheer entrepreneurial spirit amongst our membership is inspiring, which means we are able to learn so much from each other.
It was amazing to hear from Sarah Austin from the Really Helpful Club how quickly she has pivoted services into the online world – already holding fully booked, educational and motivational events in the virtual world.
One of our guests, yoga teacher Annette Wiik, is busier than ever, moving her classes online, finding that lockdown is giving her clients more time to focus on mind and body. She has moved swiftly to make the most of the opportunity lockdown has presented.
A big thank you also to Valerie Munro, aka Auntie Planty. She joined us to talk about the Chelsea Flower Show, sadly cancelled this year. It was fascinating to hear about the history of the show and hear some interesting statistic. Who knew that those horticulturalists were more interested in champagne, Pimms and fish chips than a cup of tea?
Peta Cottee from Partners in Time and Totes and Tassles launched her new funky face coverings, which will inevitably become a part of easing lockdown in the weeks and months ahead.

And finally, thank you to all our guests for joining us, as well as Annette Wiik, we were delighted to welcome Caroline Cooper (local councillor), Sapna Gaur (web and graphic designer) and Tiba Al Khaidy (accountant).
