By Janet Hunt, secretary, Bradley Stoke Women’s Institute (WI).
Bradley Stoke Women’s Institute is back to holding monthly meetings at the Jubilee Centre after many, many months’ absence. Our first ‘face-to-face’ get together was on Wednesday 11th August with an indoor and outdoor picnic. It was lovely to see so many friendly faces back again and we all enjoyed catching up with each other as well as eating delicious cupcakes.
Our next WI meeting followed on Wednesday 8th September, when Sally Hare gave a really interesting talk about ‘Solution focused hypnotherapy’ an enjoyable, relaxing way to focus on solutions and build on your own resources to help you enjoy life to fullest – perhaps something we all could do with after the last eighteen months!
We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 2pm in the Oak Room at the Jubilee Centre on Savages Wood Road in Bradley Stoke and our next meeting is on 13th October. We always have time at our meetings for a cup of tea or coffee and catch up on any news from our members and the wider WI movement, including details of trips out and interesting talks arranged by the Avon Federation WI and our own Bradley Stoke WI.
Our WI is a great place to make new friends and to enjoy social activities. Besides our monthly meeting we also have a table tennis club that meets every Monday at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre (expertise not required, just enthusiasm!), a monthly craft club where you can spending a couple of hours doing your favourite craft in the company of WI friends, a book club and a monthly coffee morning at a local café. We are also organising trips out for meals and ten-pin bowling and are always open to good ideas for other interesting and fun things to do.
We would love to see new members, so if you are interested in joining us, why not pop into the Jubilee Centre at 2pm on Wednesday 13th October? You will be made very welcome.
If you would like more information please contact me, Janet, on 07845 744351.
