Learn the art of burlesque with the lovely Lady Wildflower
Don’t forget to bring a pair of gloves! We can’t wait to welcome Lady Wildflower and get in touch with our inner Dita Von Teese for a little bit.
Inside HMP Styal, the only female prison in the North West
We’ll get an insight into the realities of inmate life from Eddie Tarry, Community Engagement Manager at this women’s prison.
The presentation will be about the daily life inside the prison, the regime and what activities are delivered that will benefit women whilst in custody. More importantly upon release, which ultimately will reduce the possibility of reoffending.
Curry & Culture in the 18th Century
Dr Ben Wilcock from the National Trust, talking to us about the influence of Asia on taste in the 18th century. He’s planning on telling us a bit about the work the National Trust does in the North West in collaboration with the region’s universities and he’s also said he’s got a quiz for us (yay!).
In addition, we are having a curry tasting. Lots of people have been in touch to say they are bringing something along to try.
Bee Moor members Lisa Williams and Vicky Jackson will talk to us about their work within the mental health sector. If you would like to ask any questions or raise an issue privately on anything mental health related for discussion, you can send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t forget to bring an object with you to Thursday’s meeting – something that makes you smile, brings you joy or lifts you up with a happy memory. We would like to share some of these stories together.
Craft Night & WI Resolution debate
We wouldn’t be a true WI if we didn’t have a craft night! We’ll also be debating the WI resolutions at this meeting. More details to come
Running, health & well-being with David Wyeth
In 2017, after running almost 26 miles, David Wyeth’s legs literally collapsed under him just metres from the finishing line of the London Marathon.
Matt Rees was running in the same race and stopped to help him along. The image of Matt helping David went global.
Dave will talk about taking up running, his motivation for this, the physical & mental wellbeing benefits he gains from it & also about his experience of the London Marathon. With the media spotlight on him after not finishing the race & being helped by another runner, David will tell us about the aftermath of the media circus that ensued, getting back to normality & falling back in love with running. Sounds a meeting not to be missed.
Line Dancing with Heather Freeman
Get your dancing feet on for a night of line dancing. No previous experience required – it is all about having fun together!
Summer break, no meeting.
Bee Moor Social & Cyril Flint Fundraiser
An evening to raise all important funds for our Charity of the Year, Cyril Flint.
Calligraphy with Alejandra Gonaldi
A chance to learn about “the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner”. Or if you want, fancy, swirly writing!
Annual General Meeting & Fizz
Join us for our AGM and celebrate our third year with fizz and food. We will vote in the committee and reflect on what we have been up to over the year.
Time for festive fun with WI friends.
Parking: We would encourage people to walk or car share where possible. There is no on-site car parking. However there is unrestricted car parking on the nearby streets with car parks located in Sale Moor Village (James Street & Warrener Street car parks).
The school is located at the bottom of Nursery Close which is a very small cul-de-sac. Please do not attempt to park on this street. We really like our venue and want to keep it. It allows us to bring wine (many other venues do not)! Parking on this street causes congestion problems, blocks access to the school for emergency vehicles and upsets the neighbours.
For those with access difficulties please contact us directly. We can arrange for you to have parking at the school.
Refreshments: Tea, coffee and sweet treats will be provided. If you want to enjoy a glass of wine please feel free to bring your own.
