Upcoming events

Tuesday 11 September – main meeting – Radiating Beauty, Shoreditch Sister turn 11, and a celebratory bake off!

This month we have Lucy Jane Santos, an expert in the history of twentieth-century leisure, health, and beauty with a particular interest – some might say obsession – in the cultural history of radioactivity. The topic is even the subject of Lucy’s PhD, which she is currently undertaking part time! Lucy has appeared as an occasional contributor on TV and radio, and her historical research has been featured in a range of publications. See more at www.lucyjanesantos.com

For the second part of the meeting we will be celebrating our 11th birthday with a bake-off! With bake-off back on the box and keeping with WI tradition, we felt it was high time for a spot of cake. Dust off your oven gloves to battle it out to be SSWI baking Queen 2018 – will it be ten out of ten for your cherry buns or will a soggy bottom rule you out of the running? Bring along your bakes with a clear label to the meeting.

As usual, we always welcome any raffle prizes for the meeting, the proceeds of which will go to the newly selected charity, which will be announced at the meeting.
