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

Store Cupboard Spa Night

This month we'll be getting creative and concocting our own beauty products with everyday ingredients that you will likely have in your kitchen cupboards.
Your very own store cupboard spa!

Ingredients and bowls will be provided but please bring a hand towel with you.

Clubs & Events

Our WI is very fortunate to have several clubs for members to get together between our monthly meetings and there is the beginnings of a new one - Film Club!

The Videodrome at 20th Century Flicks has been booked from 7pm-9pm on 11th May and you will need to let Judy Gowenlock know if you'd like to go, either at the meeting or by commenting on her Facebook post.
Reserve your place by paying in advance (approx. £6).

The next dinner club will take place at Poco in Stokes Croft on 26th April at 8:15 pm. They will be enjoying a vegetarian tapas selection of around 11 different dishes for £18 per head plus service charge. Gluten free options are available.

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.

Looking Ahead


Skill Share

Our May meeting will be a skill share. Do you have something that you would be prepared to demonstrate or share with your fellow members? Perhaps you have a skilful friend? Drop us a line on - we'd love to hear from you!
