The last month has been a month of “firsts” for Yate WI – our first AGM, our first Gin Tasting Evening and our first Quiz night – nothing big I am sure you will agree but all firsts never the less! The Gin Tasting evening was well attended with 32 ladies from various local WI’s beside Yate WI attending to try a variety of gins, tonics and cocktails. A wonderful time was had by all who attended and the committee would like to say a huge thank you to members Sue Walker, Anne Weaver, Jude Griffin and Karen Witwicki who planned and organised the evening. Thank you also to Waitrose, Aldi, 6oClock Gin, Masons, Morrisons, The Perfume Shop, Bloccs, Jimmy Dean and Poole Court for all their support and donations towards the evening. Our latest meeting was on November 11th with 31 people attending for an evening of brain puzzling and cakes, an entertaining evening was had by all and we all went home having learned something new! (What word sounds the same even if you remove 4 of its letters?)
Why not join us at our next meeting on December 9th at 7.30pm at Poole Court for an evening of chat, Christmas puzzles and puddings! Or come and join us at our monthly coffee afternoon on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 1.30pm at The Cupcake Fashion Tearoom, Ridgewood Centre, Yate. There is always a warm welcome for visitors and prospective new members!
