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


Benefits of yoga, membership, charity decisions

This month we'll be hearing from Diana Penny one of the yoga teachers from our local YogaWest. We'll hear about the basic principles of yoga with demonstrations of some of the techniques.

Membership 2017

If you'd like to sign-up for 2017 we still have a few spaces left on a first come first serve basis at the meeting. Membership costs £39.00 for the whole year, cash or cheques (no cards) please. All members (new and renewals) will need to fill out a membership form to ensure everyone’s details are up to date. If you can please print and fill this out in advance it will be a big help!

Charity for 2017

We will be voting for our charity at this meeting so if you have an organisation in mind that you'd like to put forward please be prepared to stand up for a couple of minutes to tell us all about them! Details of the criteria for charities can be 
found on the NFWI website (.pdf).

Cake and bakes at meetings

Cake is an integral part of the WI, and it's also a fantastic way to raise money for charity. To meet our fundraising target for the year we'll be bringing cakes back to the meeting (and tea and coffee!), but we need bakers! Please sign-up for cakes, savouries, and other bakes.
