Our next meeting is on Thursday 12 April: an evening with the Suffragettes
2018 marks 100 years since women first got the right to vote in the UK. We will be joined by Cat Crossley for a lively and entertaining talk on the history of the suffragettes.
What will happen at the meeting?
The meeting starts at 7:30 – refreshments of tea, coffee, wine and cake are available when you arrive with some time to catch up with friends or get to know us if it is your first visit.
We always have a quick business meeting, led by Fiz, our president – mainly information about upcoming events so it can be useful to have your diary to hand. This will be followed by the main event of the evening – Cat’s talk.
The meeting will finish at about 9 p.m.
I’m not a member – can I come?
Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.
Our usual guest fee is £3. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you on the door and say hello!
What should I bring with me?
It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events!
We are continuing to collect non-perishable food items for Bradford Metropolitan food bank – a reminder of the items needed can be found on their website.
