NEXT MEETING

:: Wednesday 20 June: Sort Your Sh*t Out! (Katherine Blackler): 7.30pm ::

This month Belle Katherine is sharing her rather unusual job as a professional organiser and declutterer. She will have practical tips and tricks to organise your home, your work or your life as well as an insight on what it’s like to be a professional organiser.

Reviewing and mastering your physical environment can gain you freedom, extra time or peace of mind you might feel is currently missing. Almost everyone can feel overwhelmed at points with stuff, chores and diary commitments so Katherine wants to help you work out what’s weighing you down to prioritise and… Let the rest go!

To get you started on your decluttering we’ll have a collection bag for the Alzheimer’s Society‘s old jewellery campaign – any broken, odd or unwanted jewellery can be contributed.

We will also have a raffle – our new raffle charity chosen at last month’s AGM is Bloody Good Period which provides sanitary products to girls and women facing period poverty.

NB If you’d like to join on the night please bring cash or cheque (£30.75). If you’d like to pay by bank transfer please make your payment by the Tuesday before the meeting at the latest.

OUR LOCATION
We meet at Better Bankside, 18 Great Guildford St, London SE1 0FD.
Guests are always very welcome if you want to try us out – guests pay £5.

 

Snacks

All creations warmly welcomed for our snacks table, sweet/savoury/homemade/not. NB. We have a couple of Belles with serious allergies. If bringing homemade treats please write a full list of ingredients – thank you!

Check out our Pinterest page for ideas. If you are making something yourself, take pictures as you cook and get your recipe posted with our partner, Borough Market.

WATERLOO FOODBANK Don’t forget we’ll be collecting goods for the Waterloo Food Bank at each meeting. Please see this list for items they need and pop a few in your basket next time you’re at the shops. Here are a few of the most needed items: tinned fruit (400gms), tea bags (80s), UHT milk (1 litre)

  3. Hi, I had an idea for a potential speaker, or type of speaker…

    I’ve recently got myself a bicycle and have become aware that many women and gender-variant people (myself included), aren’t taught mechanics by our Dads (or Grannies or whatever!), and don’t grow up fixing our bikes. So it would be brilliant if we had a bike mechanic, female if possible to come and talk to us. I believe Lock7 near london Fields is run by female mechanics but not sure….

    Just a thought I had & decided to share 🙂

    Looking forward to tomorrow meeting.
    Cheers,
    Emma

    • That sounds like a great idea.

      I myself and an amateur cyclist and I know I would probably cycle more if I knew how to fix common problems.

      I’ll let the committee know and hopefully it will be appear in one of our emails soon!

  4. Are those of us in our late 40’s welcome? Not sure if this for those who are much younger!! Would love to come in Nov if I am welcome. Christine

    • Hi Christine,

      of course over 40s are welcome! Our members range in ages from 20s-80s, in fact a visiting WI member said we were one of the few WIs she had seen she would describe as cross generational! 🙂 Hope to see you at Novembers meeting! Cathryn
