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

June 2019

Cheese Tasting Quiz

Do you know your Gouda from your Gorgonzola, your Stinking Bishop from your Yarg?

It’s time to test your taste buds with our cheese tasting quiz (and quite frankly this is the meeting a lot of us cheese lovers have been waiting for!).

Please also bring along any homemade chutneys to try with the cheese.

Not all our cheeses will be vegetarian, plus some will have mould, rind and be unpasteurised so please consider this before arriving.

We’ll have our usual WI business and updates then we'll move onto the eating!

Start thinking about your Denman competition entry

Get Creative – Celebrate Women!

This is our exciting new competition to win a Denman Bursary! What does being a woman today mean to you? To enter you need to produce a creative piece. You could write a poem, or a short story, or perhaps create a painting or photograph. There's no fixed categories so you can just get creative and produce any other imaginative craft you can think of! Let's see how creative our WI can be!

We have three prizes: First prize is £200 and two follow up prizes of £100 for you to spend on a course at Denman. The deadline is the October meeting for judging, with the winners being announced at the quiz in November.

Good luck!

Cakes and Bakes at Meetings

This is a great fundraiser for us but we haven't had many bakers recently. Please bring along a bake, cake or shop bought treat to share with members and raise money for our charity. We are setting ourselves a target of raising £200 this year just from meeting cake sales, so please help out.
