Back to crafts this month as we take on the classic 1970s trend of macramé. Ali will be taking us through the steps to make a hanging indoor plant holder.
We’ve revamped our competition to win a Denman Bursary. We want you to celebrate women in any way you like. So it could be about yourself or any woman – family, colleague, famous woman – who inspires you.
So get your creative hats on. You could write a poem, or a short story, or perhaps create a painting or photograph. There are no fixed categories so feel free to use any other imaginative craft you can think of. Let’s see how creative our WI can be!
We have three prizes: First prize is £200 and two follow up prizes of £100 for you to spend on a course at Denman. The deadline is the October meeting for judging, with the winners being announced at the quiz in November.
This month is a bit different as we go off site and take a visit to PC Motors to learn all things car maintenance.
The meeting takes place at:
PC Motors in Horfield at Unit 1a Elm Road, Horfield, Bristol, BS7 8RJ.
But we will convene beforehand nearby at the Tinto Lounge on Glos Rd from 7.15pm, then head over to PC Motors. Once we are done we’ll head back to Tinto for our WI business.
Do you know your Gouda from your Gorgonzola, your Stinking Bishop from your Yarg? It’s time to test your taste buds with our cheese tasting quiz (and quite frankly this is the meeting a lot of us cheese lovers have been waiting for!).
Please bring along any homemade chutneys too to try with the cheese.
Not all of our cheeses will be vegetarian and obviously if you have a severe dairy allergy, or are pregnant (and avoiding soft and blue cheeses) then you might want to give this one a miss.
This month we have a talk from Unseen UK, who are a charity working towards a world without slavery, through working in partnership with communities, business, governments and other organisations to help stamp out slavery for good. They also provide victims of trafficking, with the safety, hope and choice they deserve.
We are looking forward to hearing all about the work they do to eradicate slavery in UK.
