September news

Change of venue alert!

Happy autumn equinox, Malago WI. Are you enjoying the fairest of the seasons?

Seems we're set for some heat this week, and Malago WI is no exception. On Wednesday we'll be feeling hot with a spot of salsa at the Southbank Centre. Wear clothes and shoes you can dance in, and we'll provide the tunes, refreshments and sparkling company. Same time, different place - don't miss it. There's one free drink in it for you and every member (September and October are members-only meetings, we're open to all for our November Ways with Wool though).

October's meeting is our 3rd birthday and we're celebrating in style with a swish. Bring along old favourites from your wardrobe for our swap-a-thon - clothes, shoes and accessories in tip-top condition are all you need to bring to swap with your ever-stylish Malago pals. Free clothes! Woo hoo!

Best of Bedminster - Saturday 1 October
Malago WI will provide drinks, cakes, and kids activities once again at the Best of Bedminster show. For the third year running we're heading to North Street Green from 11am on Saturday 1 October - come and support your local community, and if you can donate a cake or two then drop us a line.

Other news
Earlier this year, we talked campaigns with Selina from InterCre8. The Women's Institute has now adopted Love your Libraries as the new campaign - lend your support by visiting the website. And, indeed, your library.

Malago WI committee and programme for 2012 is shaping up nicely. We'll be voting in the new committee at October's meeting, and there's still room for more. If you'd like to lend your support - in any capacity - then please collar a committee member on Wednesday, or send us an email. We'd love to have you.

Brunel group
Malago WI is part of the Brunel group (a wider collection of 6 local WI branches) and the next Brunel group meeting takes place on Tuesday 25 October at 7.30. Anyone who'd like to attend from MWI is welcome, tickets are £3.50, the meeting takes place in Stockwood. There will be a vintage feel, with a guest speaker who will reflect on one exciting 20th century year, and Malago WI will judge the photography competition. If you fancy going back in time with the Brunel group then bring your ticket money, put your name down at our September meeting and we'll give you all the details.

That's all for now, we're watching Calendar Girls.
