Without wishing to make this sound like an awful Oscar acceptance speech we’ve got a lot of people to thank and a lot of celebrating to do as The Bath WI rather grandly celebrates our 1 first birthday!

Bottle of champage to celebrate 1 year of Bath WI

It’s amazing to think back to January of last year and to an enthusiastic but rather ramshackle meeting where we decided to try and make a new wave WI group work in the city to support the women of Bath, help us all learn some new skills and importantly to reach out to the community around us.

Our first meeting kicked off with a wine tasting and since then we’ve been lucky enough to sample a range of activities from chocolate making to self defence and facial yoga.  Our craft workshops have been a huge success and are frequently over subscribed and we’ve organised some epic social events including a launch party at the newly opened Holburne Museum and a private tour of the American Museum.

A very big thank you has to go to all of our Exec Committee who all work so hard to make the group a success and to keep us all in some semblance of  order!  An equally big thank you goes to you, our members. Your commitment, good humour and enthusiasm makes us who we are.

We’ll be celebrating at our March meeting this Wednesday (March 7th at 7.30pm) with cake, champagne and of course a visit from the delectable Richard Bertinet. For details of the meeting click here

As always the meeting is free to members.  Non-members and visitors are very welcome to this special event at a cost of £4.
