Next Meeting


Our next meeting is on Thursday 14 June: DIY

We all have different levels of DIY skills – some of us have renovated houses, while others would struggle to hold a screwdriver the right way around. Join us for an evening of DIY-based craft: we will be using nails, hammers, drills and saws to create something amazing…

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.

Ruth will be leading the main part of the meeting. We will learn how to use drills and saws safely, and use hammers and nails to create something exciting… no experience is needed, you will be shown how to handle all the tools and help will be on hand whenever you need it.

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.

This month we are also collecting for the Red Box project, a new local project aiming to ensure no young woman misses out on education because of her period. Please bring along donations of sanitary products.
