15 October: AGM and Butchery Skills

It’s time for the AGM, new committee members are sworn in and we have a review of the past year.

We also have a talk and demo from our local female butcher, Amy from Dave Giles on Gloucester Road.

17 Sep: Bangra Drumming

A Bangra Drumming workshop this month and back at our usual venue, St Andrew’s Bowling Club on Derby Road.

Please be aware this is going to be a noisy session as we’ll be hearing a demo and having a go with the drums.

20 Aug: Macramé

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. 

16 July: PC Motors

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.

18 June: Cheese Tasting Quiz

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.

21 May: Unseen UK

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.

16 Apr: Embroidery with Jemima Lumley

Time for some craft and with former member and local jewellery designer, Jemima Lumley, who’ll be showing us how to create a beautiful embroidered appliqué piece that can be framed. We’ll have all the materials you’ll need but if you can bring along a basic sewing kit (with a needle suitable for embroidery) that will be helpful.

19 Mar: Music Therapy

Come along to find out how music and music therapy can support mental health and wellbeing, we’ll have a talk and an interactive session – no musical ability required!
