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


Let's have some 'me' time

This month, we're being pampered and getting some valuable style tips.

We're trying a different format and we have three practitioners coming in this month. In the red corner, we have Elise from Stella & Dot offering style advice on key wardrobe pieces and looking at spring trends. In the blue corner, we have Grace Kingsley demonstrating various hair and make-up techniques. Both will be offering two sessions of 20 minutes each. And finally, we've got Nikk Whyman offering clothed shoulder massage tasters which can be booked in as you arrive. There'll be a break in the middle of the evening, giving you a chance to mill about, chat to our practitioners and peruse their wares.

We'll have all the usual business: an update on the cookbook, plans for the year ahead, clubs and federation updates as well as some exciting news about a new venue from March!

We meet at St Michael's on Gloucester Road. Doors open at 8.15pm (through the gate on the right to the little link room) with the aim of starting at 8.30pm. We're going to be in the front hall this time, following pilates which finishes at 8pm so don't turn up before 8pm. However, if you're one of the first, you can help us set up. :)

Charities for 2014

We've had a few suggestions of charities to work with or donate cookbook proceeds to. If you'd like to suggest anyone else, please email back. Once we've sold all the cookbooks we will open an application to those charities to apply for funds.

Still a few spaces for 2014 membership!

As the title suggests, if you'd like to join us (or renew still), please bring in cash or a cheque for £34.70 (with your completed membership form if you're joining). Cheques should be made payable to Gloucester Rd WI. Renewals only need to hand in a form if your details have changed. If you haven't yet renewed, you will no longer be on the system as we're deleting this week.

For a membership form, you can download one here.

And finally...

Did you spot our member, Claire in this month's issue of WI Life? She's the cover girl and will be teaching us how to sing at October's meeting!
