Well… what an exciting week City WI are having – radio interviews, launch events, fete’s. You name it – we’re doing it!
On Tuesday, City WI members Emma and Hollie-Anne went along to BBC Radio Nottingham to have a chat on-air with the lovely Mark Dennison about our group, what we get up to and our upcoming fete. We had a great time and Hollie-Anne took some great pictures. If you want to have a listen, the show is available for a few days more on iPlayer. Skip to1:55 and keep listening after the news.
Straight after our radio appearance, we ran across town to the Market Square to meet WI member Leanne and help out with the launch of the fabulous Nottingham Food Festival. We handed out delicious cake made by committee members (including sponge cake, madeleines, chocolate fridge cake, blueberry crumble bar and more!) and local companies, danced along to some classic songs performed by Frankie Martin and watched the very talented dance company QMX perform. We had a great time and we’ve even been featured in the Nottingham Post! Big thanks to the wonderful people at Tank PR and We Are Nottingham for inviting us along.
But all the fun doesn’t stop there as this Saturday 2 July City WI are hosting A Twist of Fete at Cape bar in Hockley. We’re just putting the finishing touches to the plans for the day and choice of cakes to make!
Join us from 11am – 3pm and help us to raise money for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. You’ll be able to browse a wide variety of stalls including homemade cake, a tombola, craft stalls including greeting cards, homeware and knitting, jewellery stalls and you’ll even be able to treat yourself to a manicure! It’ll be a great day – don’t miss it.
