New Virtual WI – Blooming Zoomers WI

Meet the Blooming Zoomers, your Virtual WI for a digital world. This fledgling branch of ESFWI was formed in April 2021 and offers all the benefits of WI membership, including the right to vote on resolutions, take part in national campaigns and join courses, workshops and events. We meet on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 30 pm via Zoom.  With no need to travel, particularly on dark, cold winter nights, you can sit in the comfort of your own home with your favourite tipple to hand, make new friends and be among the first to enjoy a different WI experience.  If you are keen to join the WI but are unable to attend regular meetings because of work or other commitments, someone whose membership has lapsed or perhaps want a different view of the WI, the Blooming Zoomers could be for you.


Our programme for the next few months is now almost complete, with the option of Breakout groups and sub-groups to come. Starting with July we are having a talk on the Beachy Head Heritage Project, in August we are virtually travelling with Peta and her Quirky Car, in September we hope to have a talk on climate change, while in October we have our own crafty session, making ‘roses’ with Felicity Jennings.  We will hold our first Annual Meeting in November followed by “Would I lie to you?”  December is tba but our plans for our new year meeting are well under way. Nothing like getting ahead!


We also have our occasional, popular ‘Another Booming Quiz’ evenings.  All this and more available to you at a click of a button, a veritable portable WI.  Visitors are always welcome so why not give the Blooming Zoomers WI a try and help us to spread the word so that we can Zoom, Bloom and Grow!
