Last call: Denman Day with the PDSA, ballot closes Tuesday 8 September

Sotonettes members have been invited to apply for tickets for the forthcoming Denman Day, Oxfordshire, in conjunction with the PDSA. A ballot to allocate tickets will be held on Tuesday 8 September, so you’ve still got time to apply if you like the sound of a wonderfully informative and deliciously entertaining trip out to Denman on 29 October 2015…

In a very special event, the WI welcomes PDSA and two of its celebrity supporters to Denman to share in a day of knowledge, nostalgia and baking!

TV vet Steve Leonard and PDSA Director General Jan McLoughlin will talk more about the work of PDSA, and TV chef and PDSA supporter Colin McGurran will share how he became involved with the charity following his success on the BBC’s Great British Menu. Colin will also be giving a very special baking demonstration during the afternoon and will take questions from the audience.

Good luck!

Centenary of Portswood Library

Portswood Library, part of Southampton City Libraries @sotonlibraries, will be celebrating its
centenary on Thursday 22 October, and Sotonettes members have been invited to join the festivities.

There will be an exciting programme of activities and events for children and adults, with special guests, stories, crafts and lots more to be announced.
To help with the celebrations there will be a display featuring the memories and stories of library users. Do you have an amusing story/anecdote you would like to share about the library? Or did you achieve something special or discover a new skill with the help of the library? It can be anything. Whatever it is, Portswood Library would love to hear from you!
