Our next meeting is Thursday 12 March: a blossoming spring
Our March meeting has a gardening theme!
We will be joined by two local gardening gurus, who will give plenty of hints and tips on getting the most from your outdoor space – whether you own an estate or a couple of pots.
You’ll also be able to get hands-on and create your own surprise masterpiece to take home.
FREE for Saltaire WI members.
VISITORS WELCOME: fee this month is £10 to cover guest fee and cost of making floral arrangement.
Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank
We are continuing to collect items for the Foodbank. Bring along any non-perishable items you would like to donate (see their website for suggested items).
What will happen at the meeting?
The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the hall at St Peter’s Church, Moorhead Lane. There’s always time to grab some refreshments (tea, coffee, wine and cake) and catch up with friends or meet new people, and the meeting itself will start at around 7:45 p.m.
Fiz (our president) will give us an update on plans, meetings and any other news: it’s worth having your diary to hand to note down any dates, and keep an eye out for the sign up sheets and information at the back of the hall.
After that, we’ll listen to our guest speakers and then try out our “green fingers” as we get hands-on making our own plant arrangements.
If you want to join in the hands-on gardening activity, please bring:
– gardening gloves (if possible) and an apron, to keep you clean!
– a bag, to carry your finished masterpiece home
The meeting will end at around 9:15 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 £4. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you 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 items for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank, so do bring along any food you wish to contribute.
This month please bring along gardening gloves (if possible) and an apron, to keep you clean, plus a bag, to carry your finished masterpiece home
