Willow Brook Townswomen’s Guild started in 2009 as a small group of ladies who wanted to make new friends, discover their local area and get involved in events and activities in Bradley Stoke. As it enters its seventh year, the Guild has over sixty members and continues to go from strength to strength.
This year’s programme of evening activities has included a summer musical soiree and cream tea, quizzes, speakers and an annual fundraising night for its charity of the year, where over £400 was raised for the Jessie May Trust. The Guild also organises regular trips and outings, this year’s most popular being visits to the Swindon Designer Outlet and to Gloucester.
In addition to its evening programme, the Guild lays on a range of informal activities every month including a book club, a ‘meet and chat’ coffee morning, guided walks around the local area (weather permitting!) and an opportunity to get together and socialise over a nice pub lunch. Members can also get involved with demonstrations and events organised by other Townswomen’s Guilds in the Bristol area.
Member Linda Allebon said:
“This is a great organisation and we get involved in lots of activities and events, support worthy causes and most of all have fun! We’re all looking forward to more exciting activities in 2016 and are always happy to welcome new members and guests – do come along and meet our friendly ladies who will be there to greet you.”
Willow Brook Townswomen’s Guild meets on the second Tuesday of each month, 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the Jubilee Centre, Bradley Stoke. For further information please contact Janine on 01454 617645 or visit the Guild’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WillowBrookTG.
