Dear members (& supporters),

It is with great pleasure that we can announce a few changes to the Frome WI which were agreed by the members present at last nights Summer meeting (after being proposed by the committee who have been working hard behind the scenes).

Our move to the YMCA on Vallis Rd back last year was a temporary one when we were evicted at short notice from the URC when it was suddenly sold for redevelopers. It was very useful to have been able to meet at the YMCA but there were a few flaws with it (parking issues and loud disturbances from other venue users to name a couple) so we have been looking at alternatives & have now found one...

We will be meeting at The Hub Nub (the new name for the URC where we used to meet)  Whittox Lane, Frome, BA11 3BY a new community venue in the centre of town. It is still being redeveloped but we feel this will be much better in the long run!

However, due to other bookings this means we have to meet on the third MONDAY of the month instead of a Thursday (still 7.30-9.30pm). We hope that this will suit our current and attract more future members. 

To mark this 'fresh start' we will be holding a 'relaunch' evening next month on 21st September which will include a variety of 'taster' activities for people to try throughout the evening. We will be giving out goodie bags to everyone who attends and will have a 'special' raffle.  This will also be to celebrate the WI Centenary!

It would be really appreciated if you could help spread the word about our relaunch and we challenge everyone to being at least one friend/relative/colleague/neighbour if possible.

We have made some flyers, posters & leaflets which you are very welcome to share with your friends however you like. Maybe you could pop one through a neighbours door (especially if they are new to the area), share it via social media or display a poster at work?  

We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting evening and look forward to seeing Frome WI fly again now that we have a permanent home!

Best wishes,

The Committee x
