  1. Hi, I’m a new member. I now know that the Saturday meetings are a.m., and the Thursday meetings are p.m., but I’m not seeing the exact times here on the website. Could you please tell me? Also, I tried to attend one meeting in November, and as it was dark I had problems identifying the building and couldn’t find anywhere to park. Many thanks, Holly

    1. Hi Holly! Sorry you had problems parking. There is a parking lot to the left of the building – it’s a brown apartment building on the east side of the street – but as it’s shared with a hairdressing salon, sometimes it can fill up quickly. Parking is also available on the street – but you might have to walk a bit. Just make sure you don’t park on the street directly opposite the building.
      As for times, Thursday meetings start at 7pm. The Saturday workshops start at 10.30 am – bring your own lunch/we have a microwave – and end usually somewhere between 2-3pm. We also have a board meeting every Saturday starting at 9am before the workshop and it’s open for all ARWA members to attend if they wish. It’s a great way to find out how the organisation works and we’re always keen to hear new ideas from members.
      If you’re going to be at the workshop on Saturday, please make yourself known to me – Diana. We might be able to find someone else in the group who lives close to you, so perhaps you could car share and reduce (both) your parking problems.
      Looking forward to meeting you!
