20160914_191350-2Who doesn’t love a good summer fete? We had a great time exploring all of the bits and bobs of the different booths set up for our fete in September. We had lots on offer from cakes  and wine tombola to lace and books with so many things in between. We were able to share our pocket park garden plans with the some of the local WIs who attended and attracted several new members to the group.

A special thanks to all those who contributed to the booths and stood  by to help make our fete a success!

 

city-wi-beer-fest-for-online-jpgThere is a lot to look forward to this fall, our upcoming Beer Fest for one!  We have teamed up with lovely folk at the Crafty Crow and Magpie Brewery for our Beer Festival! this coming Saturday, October 8th at the Crafty Crow Pub.  It is a part of the Festival Fringe Fortnight of the Robin Hood Beer Festival. They’ve worked hard to source many of ales from Brewsters (female brewers!) from near and far and will have lots of tasty beers as well as their usual range of beverages available. We will have cake and craft booths running from 12-6pm, although the fest lasts all day.

We will also be holding a raffle with some great prizes from the local community including vouchers for Knit Nottingham, Stick & Ribbon, Carluccio’s, Georges Tradition, plus a basket from the Body Shop and many other items. The drawing will be at 6pm don’t miss it!

You don’t have to be a member of the WI to come, we’d love to see you whoever you are, but we’ll have lots on information on the WI and what we do, so come and see us!

If you have any items you would like to sell at the beer festival please contact one of the committee members to make arrangements.

Our October meeting also promises to be a tantalizing event, Tales of the Night with a Sex and The City theme. We will have lots of mocktails and cosmos available during an evening of risque talks. We have invited the Great British Sexpert , Rebecca Dakin, to talk us through her best dating stories and advice. Bring a friend or two as it promises to be a fascinating event! October 12th , 7:30pm – 9:30pm, YMCA International Community Center.

See you all soon!
