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

Celebrating International Women's Day

8th March was International Women’s Day so we shall celebrate this when we get together for our meeting on the 20th.

In what might be a first for Gloucester Road WI, we will have two speakers.
The first is lawyer Bethan Evans. She studied law at Bristol University and has built up 35 years of experience, specialising in local government.
The second is journalist and author Jane Duffus. Her book The Women Who Built Bristol was recently published with all profits going to Bristol Women's Voice.
