Wivey celebrates International Women’s Day on 21st March 2010 from 10.30 to 23.00
International Women’s Day will be celebrated in Wiveliscombe Community Centre on Sunday with a variety of free taster workshops.
These will include stone carving, street dancing, singing, Indian bread making, reflexology, belly dancing, Pilates, make up, Sushi, radio skills, crafts and a new idea for Wivey –‘bra bunting’.
Organiser Jenny Carey-Wood said: “This Women’s Day is a chance for us to have a fun day, to try out a new activity and meet other women.
“About 20 women have voluntarily given their time and ideas to make this happen after the great day last year which raised over £700 from very generous donations for food and workshops.”
The event is open to women and girls over the age of 12 and will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
Women can drop in when it suits them, but booking for workshops is advised through Wiveliscombe House on 01984-624777.
The café area will be open all day providing refreshments, lunches and a wide range of donated cakes.
Curry, drinks and dancing follow the day’s events at 7pm but by ticket entry only, also available from Wivey House or from Fyfes News.
International Women’s Day was set up in 1911 to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women.
This event will raise funds through donations for the United Nations Development Fund for Women and for the Women’s Refuge in Taunton.
