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

New Memberships & Renewals plus parkrun

We start the year with membership renewals and the chance for new members to sign-up to join.
Membership costs £41.00 for the whole year, payable by cash or cheque (no cards).

We will open the doors at 7:30pm, and we'll have tables set up taking renewals and any brand new members. Whether you're renewing of signing up for the first time, everyone will need to fill out a membership form to ensure we have your latest information. If you can please print and fill this out in advance it will be a big help! 

If you are renewing:

  • you can pre-prepare your cheque and membership form and just hand it to us in a sealed envelope and we can give you a receipt at a later date;
  • but can't make the meeting, you can ask a friend to bring the cheque and membership form along for you in January



We’ll also welcome Geoff Keogh, parkrun Ambassador for the South West, to tell us about the phenomenon that is parkrun which sees people of all ages walk, jog, run and volunteer in their local parks every weekend.

Charity for 2018

LinkAge Bristol was voted our charity for the coming year back in November's meeting. Their mission is to enrich the lives of people aged 55 and over to reduce isolation and loneliness by holding activities to bring people together. Their motto is ‘Involve, Inspire, Enjoy’ and we look forward to finding out more about them during the coming year.

Re-Gifting Auction at February's Meeting

Christmas is behind us now and chances are you may have received a few unwanted gifts. If that's the case, bring them along to February's meeting where we're holding a re-gifting auction in aid of LinkAge Bristol. 

Cakes & Bakes at Meetings

We will continue to raise some funds with cakes and bakes this year. Please don't forget to sign up to bring some along to meetings as well as buying a slice (or two!) on the night.

Community News


One of our members has kindly volunteered to start collecting items for foodbanks at our meetings. Please bring along your donations of non-perishable items and toiletries.
