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

Pimms & Bowling

July's meeting will be our summer celebration where we'll be breaking out the Pimms and enjoying a few games of bowls on home ground at St Andrews Bowling Club.

As we will be taking to the bowling green please wear flat shoes so we don't leave any marks!

Guest are welcome (£5 per guest), however we are expanding this to include male guests! If you have a partner or friend who is curious about where we meet and what we get up to then bring them along to this popular social meeting.

Bag yourself a GRWI tote

We have some tote-ally brilliant Gloucester Road WI bags available to buy this summer. They are perfect to help cut down on those pesky plastic bag and can be yours for £6.
Also a fan of the enamel badges? Get the badge/bag combo for £10.


Calling all Quizzy Rascals!

Friday 12th October is the date for this year's fundraising quiz. More details to follow but save the date and start expanding your quiz knowledge!

Cakes & Bakes at Meetings

We've been enjoying some delicious cakes at meetings so far this year. If you'd like to get baking then please don't forget to sign up to say what you're bringing along, or if you'd rather sample a slice then bring your money along to buy on the night.
