Now entering its ninth year, Willow Brook Townswomen’s Guild is a group for women of all ages in and around Bradley Stoke who are interested in making new friends, discovering their local area, getting involved with a variety of local and national issues and, above all, having fun!

Meetings take place monthly on a Tuesday evening and 2017’s fun-filled evening programme has included a Valentine’s quiz (complete with chocolates and red roses), a fashion show, guest speakers (including a local artist and radio presenter) and a summer Hawaiian Luau (with tropical punch, nibbles, hula hooping and grass skirts!).

The Guild also organises regular social events including day trips, coffee mornings and afternoon teas, lunches, guided walks and a book club. Members can also join in events with other local Guilds organised by the Bristol North West Federation, such as flower and craft shows, quizzes and carol concerts.

Committee member Linda Allebon said:

“Since the Guild was established in 2009, it has gone from strength to strength with many friendships being formed, worthy causes supported and numerous social events enjoyed during this time! In addition to our ninth birthday celebratory meal in September, a fundraising evening for our charity of 2017 (Lifeskills Bristol) and our annual Christmas party, we’re looking forward to lots more exciting activities in 2018. We’re 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

Local Townswomen’s Guild proves popular

Posted on Monday 9th November 2015 at 8:00 pm by SH (Editor)

Members of the Willow Brook Townswomen's Guild, based in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

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.
