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.
As well as the 14 regular members this month we were pleased to welcome two visitors, Simeon, who some may know from the recent collaboration with Celebrating Sanctuary and Nabila who was excited enough to become the newest member of WWB.
Housekeeping items included reports on the acquisition of our own stills and video camera and also a voice recorder, these will be used for WWB meetings and events and may be available for members events if appropriate. 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.
Other exciting news will follow for Keisha in her focused and justifiably ambitious career; we wish her well and our ongoing support.
We all look forward to next months meeting on 6th June 12.00 noon and a workshop on ‘Structured Writing’ given by Naomi Paul; you know it’s going to be great!
