Falcon Road Festival 2017

July 04, 2017 Balham WI 0 Comments

This year was the 2nd incarnation of the Falcon Road Festival in Battersea and after last year's great success, we returned on July 1st with another stall full of delicious cakes and bakes made by our members. The festival also saw the debut of our brand new Balham WI banner!

It was a gorgeous day and we were so glad to get to know more members of the community - many who had no idea the WI existed in London or that there was an institute so near. In addition to peddling our tasty creations, we also shared our new BWI informational flyers with lots of people - including the Mayor of Wandsworth - and had a lot of interest from local women in becoming members. We hope to see many new faces at upcoming meetings!

Our secretary, Laura, was interviewed twice during the day about Balham WI. Once on camera for Big Local SW11 (one of the festival's organising groups) and later by Wandsworth Radio. We're told the radio spot should be a part of the Wandsworth Tonight programme on Friday and we're keeping our ears open for it!

Thanks to all the members who baked and who helped out at the stall. We had a very successful fundraising day and will be able to put the proceeds to good use in 2018 programming and education.
