10th January 2019                          

We embraced the New Year with a really healthy start, in the company of Bristol School of Tai Chi instructor Derry Smart. She encouraged us all to get our bodies moving and taught us Tai Chi moves; what she made seem so easy, wasn’t easy at all, and by the end of the evening all our legs felt the burn. Some of us were better than others at our yin and yang!

We also voted on national resolutions and an overwhelming vote to support the Call against the Decline in Local Bus Services was counted.

In other news, our skittle team have made it through to the third round – well done ladies!

Our first book and supper club (for members only) will start on Thursday 24th January at the Bull Hinton- please contact Anne Brennan if you wish to attend.

8th November 2018

November was our AGM and we took time to reflect on the year. The committee and president Sharon will all be continuing on and our new programme was well received. 

After these more formal parts we moved into a fascinating talk by Nick Papuca. Nick brought along his two sons, and retold the story his father relayed to him at the end of his remarkable life titled “The Winter of the Wolf (Wolodmyr Papuca); about his father as a WW2 Ukrainian teenager growing up under Stalin and Hitler and his harrowing survival against all odds. It was a humbling reminder at this time of remembrance. This enthralling evening ended with members chatting to Nick and family over cheese and wine wanting to know about Nick and sons’ next step, to travel back to the Ukraine to uncover their family history. 

11th October 2018

October’s meeting was held in Doynton Village hall  (due to building work at Dyrham). We were entertained by Pete Chaplin (a police dog handler and now author) ,with stories of his work ,with a dog named Major and many tales of his escapades whilst working on the force!

13th September 2018

As Autumn arrived we settled in to an enthralling historical evening celebrating 100 years of votes for women in 2018.

Lucienne Boyce, the esteemed author of “The Bristol Suffragettes” and speaker, shared her local knowledge of the history of the suffrage campaign in Bristol and the West Country.
