February Meeting: Cambria Choir Sing-a-long – Tuesday 12th Feb 8pm

Join us on Tuesday 12th Feb (a week earlier than usual!), for a fun evening of singing with the Cambria Choir – suitable for ALL abilities!

The Cambria Choir are south London’s leading, non-auditioning community choir. Based in Herne HIll, they meet regularly and perform all over London. We are excited to have Lucy, their co-director, joining us on Tuesday 12th Feb.

Lucy says ‘Hi, I’ve been teaching adults and children to sing for 8 years, all genres of music. I’ll be leading a fun, relaxed session of singing upstairs in the pub. If you’re someone who only sings after a drink, that’s not a problem! Just bring one up with you. I’ll be teaching some fun warm-ups, we’ll try singing a few rounds, and then get our teeth into a pop song. Words will be provided on the night and there’s no need to read music. Hope you can join us!’

This event is free for members and £5 for non-members (cash on the door please).

Limited memberships available for £42 for the year – you can join on the night.

January – knit-in for King’s

This month we embodied what many see as the spirit of the WI – we knitted our little hearts out!
With wool sourced from lovely local charity shops and donated from our local haberdashery, we set to work to knit twiddle mitts, muffs, whatever you wish to call them, in aid of King’s College Hospital’s initiative for patients with dementia. https://www.kch.nhs.uk/news/public/news/view/21593
A great cause and an excellent contribution from the ladies of Brockwell Park WI. Some people couldn’t stop knitting!

November = Wreath making magic

Getting ahead of the silly season, we got started early by making our own winter wreaths.

In advance of this crafty session, the Committee made several early morning trips to Covent Garden flower market to stock up on eucalyptus and air-dried oranges (really! lots!).

The room was filled with foliage and following a quick demonstration of ‘a few we made earlier’, Brockwell Park WI’s crafty crew set about wreath making magic.

October = wine tasting = fun!

This month we were joined by David Round, Master of Wine, for an informative and enlightening evening of wine tasting.

David gave us some practical tips for wine tasting such as how to assess it’s appearance, smell, taste and finish. We then tasted a range of five wines including two white wines, two red wines and a sweet wine.

A thoroughly enjoyable wine-filled evening, with the added benefit of learning!
