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

December 2019

Christmas Party! 

Merry Christmas everyone and we look forward to seeing you all for the bring a dish Christmas party this week on 10 December.

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 cut out the ingredients list and place it next to it.

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, 1625 Independent People. Plus they'll be some games, a glass of something alcoholic (or non-alcoholic), and the traditional announcement of next year's programme.

To any members who can't make the party we hope to see you in January for membership renewals!
