August news from Malago WI

Malago mesdames, bonjour!

As summer putters to a rather pathetic close and thoughts turn to golden leaves, roaring fires and hearty stews, what better way to celebrate the last day of August than a good old Malago knees-up? And August's meeting sees us examining the tricky subject of sleep.

Many things - such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly - are done worst when we try hardest to do them

Good old Clive Staples knew a thing or two. As does Dr Sue Jackson, sleep expert, who will be laying down the basics for us. Why do we sleep? What does it do for us? How can we improve the quality of our sleep? What with tips for getting at least 40 winks, and our famous Malago tea and cakes, August's meeting will score high on the refresh-o-meter. 

Coming up later this year:
You dancing? I'm asking!
September's meeting will welcome the Strictly season with a session of dance basics.  This meeting is MEMBERS ONLY and requires a change of venue. Not the Blackpool Tower Ballroom, I'm afraid, but next best thing - the Southbank Centre

Malago WI will once again be serving refreshments at the Best of Bedminster show, which takes place on Saturday 1 October. Jacqui and Hannah, committee fundraisers extraordinaires, have been plotting and planning, drawing up a rota for the day. If you'd like to help, collar them at the next meeting. Or just come along on the day to support our cause, have fun in the sun (hopefully), and enjoy everything North Street Green has to offer.

And October's meeting is our 3rd birthday party! Join us for fun, food and a swish. For the uninitiated, swishing is clothes-swapping - bring along clothes, shoes and accessories that you don't wear anymore and swap them for a new-to-you outfit or two. Previous swishing evenings have kitted our members out in some fantastic new clothes and we've been very impressed with the standard of swish items. 

November is our last meeting of the year, and sees the return of our ever-popular Ways with Wool night. Plans are top secret at the moment, but you are sure to take home a beautiful (and possibly festive?) woolly treat. Watch this space.

We're off for a kip. See you Wednesday!
