Next Meeting


Our next meeting is Thursday 14 November: Bedpans and false teeth


In a change to our advertised programme, we will be joined by Denise Adlard, an award-winning local speaker, to hear about ‘Bedpans and false teeth’, the story of her 40 years and 1 week as a nurse in the NHS.

Join us for an evening of amusing, entertaining and embarrassing stories, supported by photos, badges and certificates that Denise has accumulated over the years. Denise comes highly recommended so we are looking forward to an excellent talk!

As usual there is no charge for members. Guests are welcome, for a £4 fee.

Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank and red box project
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). We are also collecting sanitary wear for the red box project.


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 hear from Denise. 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, and at this meeting we will also ask you to pay for the workshop costs.  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 and the Red Box Project, so do bring along any food or sanitary products you wish to contribute.
