Pamper Evening Report

Our lovely Fran did a most excellent job organising a Pamper Evening at Weston College in their Essential Image Beauty Salon

We had a fabulous turnout (despite the threat of snow) and over 40 ladies were lucky enough to be treated to either a facial, manicure or pedicure. I opted for a Pedicure with Julie which was excellent; Julie gave me a top quality pedicure (equal to any that I have had in professional salons) which left me feeling relaxed and my feet soft and presentable (albeit to be shoved back into my furry boots!). 
Happy feet

The commercial standard salons at the college offer students 'industry standard' facilities in which to train and on a Wednesday evening and Thursday they are open to the public where you can have any of the usual beauty salon treatments (including Dermologica facials), various massage therapies and also some more advanced salon treatments such as micro-dermabrasion.

All treatments are carried out by students who are supervised by experienced, qualified practitioners and the price list is very competitive (and incredibly affordable) because you're helping a student to develop their skills. 

Hopefully this won't be the last time we have a group outing to the college (I'm trying to work out if I can go back every week!) and I would encourage anyone that couldn't make it along to our pamper evening to head down to the salons at the college on their commercial days.

Craft Club

We had an overwhelming response for Craft Club and it looks like this is going to be a tremendous success!! 
The first meeting is going to be held on Saturday 17th March at 11.15am at the WSM Museum.
The first meeting is to agree how the craft club will work, how it will be funded and what members want to get out of it; whether that's a space to bring your own projects, share your skills with others or perhaps a programme of tutorials and targetted project days with professional craftspeople offering demonstrations. Or even, a combination of all of these things… 

See our brand new Craft Club page for more details!

First meeting of the WOW-WI Book Club

Sixteen avid readers attended the first WOW-WI book group meeting on Monday 13th March in Loves Café.  Fortified by coffee, tea and yummy cakes we had a good chat about books we have loved ....and hated!.....and agreed that listening to audio books on tape or CD counts as reading too, especially for very busy people! 

Our first book to be read and discussed at our next meeting is Before I go to Sleep by S J Watson.
The next meeting will be on TUESDAY 13th March at 7.30 pm in Loves Café, West Street,  Weston-super-Mare. 
To join the Book Group or get further details WI members should email
