August WI Meeting - The WI's campaigning history

Tuesday 18th August @ 6.30pm at Upper Vestry Hall, St George's Church Bloomsbury, Little Russell St (between Bury St & Museum St). Very close to the British Museum

Come along to this presentation from our friends at the National Federation of Women's Institutes and find out more about the Womens Institute's rich history of campaigns - more than 90 years worth. We think you will be amazed at the influencing power of the WI and just how it has improved women's rights and day to day life.

Visitors are welcome (women only... sorry gents!) at the monthly meetings and we don't make a charge the first time you come along though donations are welcomed.
Vistors - please email or phone before you come to let us know. Email at least 24hrs before the event.

Email:londonwestendwi@googlemail.com or phone Carrie 07789954972.

Finding the meeting place: Use the Little Russell St entrance only. Its the rear entrance to the Church so look for iron railings, go through the gate and up the steps on the RHS into the Upper Vestry Hall.
Nearest Tube: Tottenham Court Road/ Holborn then 5 mins walk.

Tuesday 21 July - Garden Party

The London West End WI are holding their annual Garden Party at 6.30pm on 21st July, this year we hope to be outdoors. In our first year 06 we managed an outdoor Garden Party since then we've been indoors every year so we hope this year it will be different. The Garden Party is an opportunity to relax, unwind and talk with fellow members. Dress... come as you are ( we know many women are coming straight from work) & bring warm layers in case of a cool evening!

Members are asked to bring food & drink to share (modest amounts... as there is always plenty). We meet at The Upper Vestry Hall, St Georges' Bloomsbury and hope to be outdoors in the courtyard weather & clergy permitting.

Many of our members live or work locally to Holborn/Tottenham Court Road/Covent Garden areas. If you would like to come along to meet us on any of the monthly meetings then please email londonwestendwi@googlemail.com or phone Carrie on 07789954972 for a chat.
