October news....

Thanks to Delia, Erika and Sabina from Flo-Jo Fabrics for showing us how to make some very glamorous eye-masks at last months meeting.

We are very excited that our October meeting will be a celebration of Malago WI’s 10th birthday and would love it if you could join us in the festivities! To avoid Halloween and half term we have moved the meeting to Wednesday 24th October and we will not be in the hall.

We will be holding our party and meeting in the Benjamin Perry Boathouse which is on the harbourside near the Ostrich Pub (see directions below). We will be sprucing up the boathouse and there will be prosecco on arrival to help the party atmosphere.

For our meeting John and Annie from Glastonbury Ferments will share their passion and knowledge of one of the hottest trends in food – fermentation. This is a natural way to preserve food which happily also creates complex flavours and also provides health benefits such as aiding digestion, promoting a healthy gut and cleansing the blood.

They will give an insight into the background and science of fermentation, talk about haw you can have a go at fermenting at home and give a quick demo of how to make sauerkraut.  Last but not least they will be bringing along some samples of their various products to taste and there will be the chance to buy some of their lovely range.  You may have spotted them at the Tobacco factory Sunday market and other food events in the area.

Venue: Benjamin Perry Boathouse is on Phoenix Wharf, off Guinea Street, BS1 6LT. There is on street parking nearby but you can also park on the wharf alongside the Benjamin Perry Scout hut by driving from Redcliff Hill, down Guinea Street (behind the Old General Hospital) and then turning right at the bottom by the green/blue pedestrian footbridge, drive along the cobbles in front of the Ostrich Pub to the waterfront. You will see the black timber Boathouse ahead of you.

Please join us to celebrate this special occasion on 24th October.
