Goodbye...and hello!

So, that's it then.  After twenty years, last night saw the final meeting of wgwg at Willesden Green Library which is shutting for good in May.  So, thanks to Mary, Jarred and Lily who all read out high quality work as usual and to SJ for her high quality feedback. You should have been there, there was wine, bakewell tarts and acai juice, we know how to party at wgwg.  And I guess that's all folks...

 Except it's not, of course. On May 2nd at 7pm the new phase Willesden Green Writers' Workshop will open for business at its new address:-

130 Mortimer Road,
Kensal Rise,
NW10 5SN

Our new home is one minute from Kensal Green tube (Bakerloo line)  in a terraced house which is next door but one to St Martin's Church (you can't miss it unless you try really, really hard.)  It's a nursery during the day and we are looking forward to sitting in teeny weeny little chairs (well, some of us are, others are opting for the normal size ones)

 We are eternally grateful to Margaret Bailey of the 'Save Kensal Rise Library' campaign for basically saving wgwg as well - what a woman!

So, with a new Chair (Naa) a new Secretary (SJ)  the same old treasurer (sorry) and a new home, wgwg is new in all sorts of ways, so hold on to your hats I think it's going to get exciting...

See you on May 2nd  just ring the bell on number 130 - and don't be late.
