We’re back!

Sorry for the lack of post’s recently. City WI have had a rather busy and exciting month with preparations for A Twist of Fete and our winter meetings but we’re back with a bang.

It’s been a very good month for City WI with a successful fête and November meeting.

Our first fête- A Twist of Fete at Cape on 16 October- was a huge success as we met lots of new people interested in finding out more (and buying cake) plus visitors from other WIs. The day was great fun starting with an appearance on BBC Radio Nottingham! We were delighted to be joined by Knit Nottingham, Stoneybridge City Farm, FROCK and Pink & Lilly. Our cake stand was incredibly popular raising almost £200 for City WI. We even took cake out to the local hairdressers!

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came along on the day and especially to those who helped out with decorations, cakes and everything else!

This week was our November meeting for which we had a taster evening. Members made their favourite recipe and then brought the dish and recipe in for others to try. There were a wide variety of dishes for people to try including brownies, banana bread, flapjack, quiche and more!

We were also ecstatic to welcome almost 40 people at the meeting, including visitors from Hickling WI and a whole host of newbies. It was our largest and best meeting yet. It was wonderful to meet so many new people and hope they will join us again soon.

For our December meeting we will be having a Christmas meal on Wed 8 Dec rather than a normal meeting. We will be contacting all those who have expressed an interest. In January we’ll be back to normal with ‘make do & mend’ on Wed 12 Jan.
