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

AGM & Linkage Bristol

October can only mean one thing: it's time for the our Annual General Meeting!
We will also be joined by a speaker from this year's charity, Linkage Bristol.


Looking Ahead

2018/19 Committee

October will see some changes to the GRWI committee. Each WI needs to have committee members in the key roles of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer and two of these roles are up for grabs this autumn.

Secretary - handles correspondence and emails, keeps in contact with the local federation, assists with agenda and minutes of committee meetings.

Treasurer - Maintains the accounts, advises on financial planning, pays bills and issues receipts.

There is one further role to fill:

Online Manager - Manages the GRWI website and Twitter/Facebook/Pinterest pages. Writes and sends the monthly newsletter.

The committee meet once a month and have already begun planning the program for next year's meetings which is the biggest job. If you are ready to take up one of the roles, please come along to the October meeting to be nominated.



The Quiz is Cancelled

Unfortunately the quiz will not be going ahead on Friday 12th October as there were not enough tickets sold to make it viable.
It will hopefully return in 2019.

Expressions Arts Festival

We were delighted to have a stand at the Expressions Arts Festival which took place at the Paintworks in September 2018.

Thank you to our members who made cakes as well as those that came along to help on the stand. All the money raised is going to our 2018 charity - Linkage Bristol.
