Coffee Mornings ~
and Third Wednesdays of Every Month from 10:30am-12:00pm
Changes ~ Times May Vary
Coffee mornings are often hosted in members
homes and provide a friendly and informal atmosphere for both existing
members and newcomers to catch-up with each other and to welcome new arrivals.
It is also an excellent opportunity to keep abreast of what’s happening
Occasionally a coffee morning might include
any of the following: a cultural session featuring a special guest speaker;
a craftsperson exhibiting their products; we may visit a new or interesting
shop or be invited by a hotel to experience their hospitality. Every effort
is made to alternate our coffee mornings between south, north and the
middle of Mumbai. A nominal charge of Rs100 is made and goes to one
of the charities supported by Mumbai Connexions.
Every fifth Wednesday sees a joint coffee
morning with our sister club - The American Women’s Club of Bombay (AWC).
A diary of dates is available in the Chalo newsletter.

The Craft Group meets on a weekly basis

charities. In recent years we have bought audio visual equipment for a
school for underprivileged children and funded many cataract eye operations.
