Finally summer has arrived and long may it continue!
Last months meeting was a lovely summery affair, resulting in approximately 70 gorgeous fabric flowers (and a few crocheted flowers) for Vicky at Paper Village to add to the dresses that will be made at her many workshops for the Dress a Girl Around The World project. Have you signed up for one of her free workshops yet? Take a look at the Paper Village Facebook page for the workshop date or just pop into the shop and sign up there.
At our May meeting you might recall it was the time of the wooden spoon once more. All members cast a vote to support (or not) the proposed Resolution of increasing organ donations. Our majority vote was in favour of supporting the resolution and the information was taken to the AGM held earlier this month. The resolution was passed with 5981 branches voting in favour and 133 against.
Next weeks meeting is all about boobs! We’ve got 2 speakers visiting us, firstly Lynn from Perfect Fit in Keynsham will share her considerable knowledge about lingerie and the importance of ensuring you get expert fitting and advice to make the most of your figure whatever your shape and size. Aside from running Perfect Fit Lynn is also a leading light in the Keynsham business community having chaired the Business Association, now the Chamber of Commerce, for many years championing the interests of traders and retailers and the future of Keynsham town centre.
Our second speaker is local community midwife, Tracey Dawn White, who will share her own experience of successfully coming through breast cancer and provide advice on how we should all be more breast aware.
We’ll also have a bra bin at our meeting, so bring along your old bras, because simply by binning them you can help raise money for breast cancer research.
Or alternatively, how about sponsoring your own Malago WI team? We’ve entered the Race for Life on Sunday 6th July, just click the link HERE and help support us and Cancer Research UK.
Finally, as mentioned last month, our July meeting will be a trip to Aldwick Court Farm for a vineyard tour and wine tasting (please let the sunshine continue!) Places are limited as we’ll be travelling by coach. It will cost £5 to help cover the cost of the coach hire (£10 for non-members).
So get you name on the list asap if you haven’t already and please bring the cash to the next meeting to secure your place, it’s going to be a fab evening and you don’t want to miss out!
Until Wednesday (don't forget your old bras!),
