A difficult start to the meeting this month with challenging news of a worrying medical issue for one of our members, our love and prayers were sent to her for a speedy resolution.

Housekeeping items included reports on the acquisition of our own stills and video camera WWB Cameraand also a voice recorder, these will be used for WWB meetings and events and may be available for members events if appZoom H1ropriate. On that side of the groups growing appreciation of our work, we were pleased to introduce Farideh as official group photographer after her generous offer to be such.

The face book page is now up and running and receiving many views, members who use Facebook are asked to send their ‘friends requests’; see the big button on this blogs Welcome page. Videos and Audio are also available on the new WWB YouTube Channel.

It seems that WWB may not take part directly in this years Birmingham Literary Festival in October but plans are being considered for WWB to make its own presentation around the same time if possible. Any suggestions by members for venues and subject will be gratefully received for consideration.IMG_6401
