Here's what's happening this month at Gloucester Rd WI.

A Social, Savoury Recipe Share & Re-Gifting Auction

Our February meeting with be a social evening to welcome members new and old. We’ll be donning some name badges, sharing savoury dishes and kicking off the fundraising for 2018 with a re-gifting auction.

We need you to get involved! Please bring along:

  • A savoury dish, together with the recipe if you’re happy to share that too. There will be a Gloucester Road WI rosette up for grabs for the favourite dish as voted for by everyone on the night.
  • Any unwanted items you’ve received as gifts to enter into the auction as well as a bit of money if you would like to bid on other lots.

WI Resolutions 2017/2018

The timing of our meetings meant that we needed to vote on this year’s resolutions at January's meeting.
Five choices were shortlisted nationally and Stop FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) got the most votes from our members and has been put forward as the vote from Gloucester Road WI.
