11 Dec: Christmas party

Merry Christmas everyone and we look forward to seeing you all for the bring a dish Christmas party next week.

If you weren’t at last month’s meeting and are not sure what to bring please just bring something to share or just come along. Please can all food be labelled if they contain allergens (gluten, nuts etc) and if it’s a shop bought item please keep hold of the packaging.

In a bid to be environmentally friendly (and save on the washing up!) we will not be using disposable plates so can everyone please bring their own plate and cutlery.

We’ll be running our Christmas raffle, which this year goes to our charity, LinkAge. Plus they’ll be some games, a glass of bubbly (or non-alcoholic), and the traditional announcement of next year’s programme.

Expressions Art Festival

We were delighted to have a stand at the Expressions Arts Festival which took place at the Paintworks in September 2018. Thank you to our members who made cakes as well as those that came along to help on the stand. All the money raised is going to our 2018 charity – Linkage Bristol.

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.
