Our 2016 Programme

Bake, Natter and Roll - Farnham WI meets

When: every third Thursday of the month
At: 8:15pm
Where: the United Reform Church, Farnham

Here is our programme of monthly meetings for 2016:

18th Feb - An introduction to mindfulness
Simple meditation techniques to help us focus on the present are believed to promote well-being and improve mental health. We're going to hear from our guest speaker Suzette Jones MSc RNLD, Health and Wellbeing Adviser for the Diocese of Guildford.

17th March - Let it Grow, Let it Grow
This month we are being joined by a grower from Farnham Local Food, who will give us more information about this exciting local community project, as well as giving us tips on growing fruit and veg at home.

21st April - General Natter
A night to cement new friendships we've made over cake and a drink (or two) - members can bring a craft project they are working on or maybe a board game. Be prepared for lots of nattering!

19th May - Tea-riffic
Advice on managing your online presence from author of the afternoon tea blog "Tea With Me and Friends". Find Twitter and Facebook confusing....not sure what Instagram is...this is the night for you! We'll also be enjoying a spot of afternoon tea!

16th June - WI-NEY Night!
Who doesn't enjoy a tipple every now and then?? Come along and try a selection of wines that we will have available. We'll have a wine expert on hand who will tell us a bit more about grape varieties and the areas they come from. Please drink responsibly!

21st July - Make Do and Mend ....Or Swap
Advice on how to make our wardrobes more eco-friendly by mending, upcycling and re-using clothes rather than discarding them. We'll also be having a clothes swap....bring along two items of good-conditioned clothing that you no longer want and swap them for two other items!

August - TBC
Event or trip to be confirmed

15th September - Jam, but not Jerusalem
As autumn draws in and fruit is ready to be harvested it feels like a good time to get traditional with demonstrations (and hopefully samples!) of jam making, chutneys and maybe even home-grown champagne. Bring along the fruits of your labour if you've tried any of the grow-your-own tips from March's meeting, and enter your produce in our very own Freakiest Vegetable competition!

20th October - Think Pink
It's breast cancer awareness month and it's all about boobs! Wear something pink, eat pink cakes and drink pink fizz and make sure to bring along your loose change for a raffle in aid of Frimley Park Hospital's Breast Care Appeal.

17th November - Annual Meeting & Christmas Craft
Traditionally every WI holds their annual meeting in November. We'll have reports from the Commitee and other business to take care of, and then we will turn our attention to some Christmas crafting.

15th December - Mistletoe and Wine Cocktails
Let's round off 2016 with a Bake, Natter and Roll Christmas Party!
