Today it is three years since the Tuesday night Women’s Circle started! With London Women’s Voices.

We celebrated on Tuesday – delicious food (including homemade Pumpkin muffins), civil rights anthems, heart-filling harmonies, an improvisation blending lines from our favourite tunes and a new and very silly mash up of our feminist A Whole New World and Chaiyya Chaiyya.

Then Diwali lights, a blessing tree, and some skipping! N’s ‘yard’ sale raised cash for the next Movement for Justice demo at Yarls Wood Immigration detention centre.¬†

See the pics below – spot the blessing leaf by our newest 7 year old member. And yes we are pretending to be on a magic carpet/top of a train in one of them.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped the circle to keep going for three years – all the wonderful women and children who come to sing (and share food, put away chairs, wash up, help with organising…. the under-staed nitty gritty of being a community). Plus the team at St Luke’s Community Centre including Keren, Pat and the welcoming reception team. And ¬†thank you to everyone who has sent encouragement and support over the past three years.

The next monthly circle is on Tuesday 6th December, 6.30-8.30pm. New singers always warmly welcome!
