Morris Dancing, August 2015

So at our August meeting (19th August) we learned how to perform a Morris dance with hankies. As you can see, we were full of grace and elegance! Many thanks to Tish and Mick for leading the evening, and a huge welcome to our new members who came along for the first time, and have agreed to come back!

August Meeting

Wednesday 19th August, 6.30pm

Morris Dancing

Following our successful attempt at hitting each other with sticks last year, Tish and Mick are coming back to lead us in another merry dance. This time, to minimise risk of injuries, we'll be having a go at a hanky dance.

If you've never Morris danced before, don't worry - those of us who had a go last year were not exactly experts in our field, as you can see from the video above! 
Come along from 6.30pm for what should be a fun evening. We'll be having a bit of a chat about  upcoming table sales, then get on with the dancing from 7pm. Bring along snacks to share with the group if you can.

Phoenix Gardens, 5th September


Please, please help out with this if you can - it's our biggest fundraiser of the year. Come along to our meeting on Wednesday to find out more (before indulging in a spot of Morris Dancing!)

Brownie Heaven!

At our meeting on Wednesday, Helena led us in a brownie tasting session with additional baking assistance from Ruth and Alix. 

We all went away safe in the knowledge that there are many, many types of chocolate brownie in the world, but avocados should probably never be used in the icing of them! Perhaps in the WI we're sticklers for tradition, but the pecan brownies and the raspberry brownies were the successes of the evening, and some of the more 'healthy' options (as well as avocado, we had date & sweet potato, among others) were not such hits!

Next month, in a bid to burn off the extra calories consumed this month, we're having another go at Morris Dancing.

July Monthly Meeting, Wed 15th July

Wednesday 15th July, 6.30pm

Chocolate Brownies

How Weird is my Brownie? (now there's a question for you!)

Not content with large amounts of butter, chocolate and sugar in your brownies? How about adding beetroot? Or sweet potato? Or even black beans? They're all veggies, so it must make the brownies healthy, right? Come along and try some weird, but wonderfully tasty, brownies, and learn the recipes. Got your own favourite/strange brownie recipe? Bring some along, and we'll have a taste-off!

Brownie eaters as well as bakers are needed for this chocoholic's delight of a meeting. Please note, LWEWI is not responsible for any weight gain caused by this event (although as we all know, cakes baked by someone else are calorie free!)
Come along from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, Upper Vestry Hall, St George's Bloomsbury (entrance on Little Russell Street), free for members and first time visitors, £4 for everyone else. Never been before? Email us on londonwestendwi@gmail.com for more information.
