Meadow Wood Elementary
Front Door Volunteers

The new safety and security processes introduced this year have stretched the MWE front office staff a little thin! We don't have a buzzer yet, so it would be incredibly helpful to have volunteers help by being an extra set of hands. 

Each volunteer window is one hour around lunchtime (10:30-11:30 and/or 11:30-12:30), the busiest times of the day. Feel free to sign up for both slots in a day if your schedule allows!

Nottingham Forest Women's Club Started as a Garden Club

The Nottingham Forest Women's Club meets once a month and also offers its members special interest groups such as: Book Clubs with both day and night-time meetings, Fun With Games, Pickle Ball, Garden Club, Gourmet  Dining, Cooking and more. Groups are added whenever there's interest for a particular topic or activity. There are also special field trips taken throughout the year and a festive holiday home tour and market at Christmas time. We always donate to our community and have helped local schools, teachers, The Houston Food Bank, etc.

For more of our history please click here: History to go to the History portion of our website. While there, if you're hungry for more nostalgia, there are summaries of 2 cookbooks Nottingham Forest Women's Club published a few decades ago.

Please consider joining our fun group. We always welcome new members and sign-up/payment is located below.

Happy New Year! 

We are so appreciative of this wonderful group of ladies – you consistently and generously give of your time, talents, and treasures. 

Our next opportunity is coming up in February. Thornwood Elementary is having their annual Book Fair from February 8 – February 15th. We would like to be able to purchase at least one book for each teacher for their classroom libraries. Please consider donating to this cause. Each donated book has a label inside indicating it was donated by the Nottingham Forest Women’s Club. What a wonderful way to have our group remembered for years to come. If you would like to donate, please Venmo Debbie @Deborah-Sohmer or you can donate a cash or check to Debbie. Each teacher will have a Wish List of books and we will purchase from those lists. Questions? Text Debbie at 832-434-3916 

Stay tuned for a donation drive and volunteer outing to CAP (Citizens for Animal Protection) in March. CAP’s mission is caring for pets in need through sheltering, adoption, humane education, spay/neuter services, low-cost wellness, and community outreach.
