Monday 17 September: Bunting Making

We’re always super prepared for any eventuality and so when Duncan Barrett unfortunately had to cancel at the last-minute the Committee jumped to attention and decided we’d do an activitiy we’ve been meaning to do for sometime – bunting making!  So we bought all the necessary equipment and fabrics and pulled together a craft evening for our members.  After all it’s what the WI is all about – bunting and of course CAKE!   We’re hoping Duncan will come to visit us early in the New Year.

Monday 19 November:  Baker on Board

Time to don your aprons ladies and join us for a session with John Holland who has been baking for a few years, building up a strong repertoire of go-to cakes and treats that people have enjoyed quite a lot for birthdays, weddings and all sorts of other occasions. He currently works full-time, so this is a hobby (at the moment) but he’s getting more commissions for bespoke bakes.  John said to get ready Nunhead WI for Festive Fondant Fun session, running through some super quick but effective decorating tips for cakes and biscuits in the run up to Christmas, achievable with what you have in the home kitchen, not necessarily one equipped with a ton of sugarcraft kit…

Monday 17 December: Christmas Party Time

We love Christmas at Nunhead WI and we also love a good party.  We’ll be having our Christmas party at the Old Nun’s Head and all our members are invited to join us.  Our Christmas Quiz is always popular and our Christmas raffle is stuffed full of great prizes.  We will keep you posted on our plans for our party much nearer the time.


If you’re a Nunhead local and you’d like to tell us about your business or charity venture, or share your skills in a workshop, email and tell us all about yourself!
