21 Jul: Antiques with Lisa Lloyd

Do you have a masterpiece hanging on your walls? A family heirloom you’ve always wondered about?

For July’s meeting we welcome Lisa Lloyd, Antiques Expert

Lisa will talk to us about all things antiques and select five member treasures to assess and discuss — just like on the Antiques Roadshow!

Review June: Bingo


Approx 300 g of thawed frozen spinach

White onion

1 tbs spoon butter

250 g grated cheddar cheese

200g cream cheese

150ml soured cream

Approx 150g mozzarella ball

Tin of artichokes



Drain artichokes and chop roughly

Squeeze water from spinach, then chop roughly.  Put to one side with chopped artichokes

Dice onion and gently fry in butter on low-medium heat until tender

Add the cheddar, cream cheese and soured cream to the onions.  Stir on low-medium heat until melted.

Add chopped mozzarella and melt, then add spinach and artichokes.

Add quite a bit of Tabasco – it can take a lot.  Keep adding to taste and season if necessary

Transfer mixture to oven proof dish

Sprinkle more cheddar if you wish – you can never have too much – and top with bread crumbs

Cook in oven – approx. 170 degrees centigrade for 15-20 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

Serve with pitta – get cheesy and enjoy!


Always use frozen spinach.  Fresh just isn’t as good.

You can make the mix in advance and store in an oven proof dish in the fridge until guests arrive.  Then simply pop in the oven.

DDG Summer Event – All Aboard! – Tuesday 15th August 2017

Ahoy there matey! Brislington WI are hosting the DDG summer event and we are aiming for it to be ship-shape and Bristol fashion all the way!

We will meet at the harbourside for a 1 hour guided boat trip around the historic, world famous Bristol harbour. We will follow this up with a meal on the harbourside at The Stable.

You can come for both the tour and the meal, or just the tour, or just the meal. You will need to pay a deposit, the amount depends on which option you go for. See the ticket details for more information.

Details of meeting points and timings for all options will be confirmed nearer the time, but we will not start earlier than 6pm and the meeting point will be on the harbourside near the Centre.

Please note this is also the same night as our monthly meeting in August.
