September Meeting

Hello Ladies,
Our meeting is this Wednesday 18th September, 7.30pm at Fillongley Village Hall. Our scheduled demonstrator, the Francesco Group, is unable to attend and sends apologies along with
an offer of 20% discount at either the Knowle or Birmingham Salons (terms and conditions apply).
However, we are pleased to tell you that The Venue, a beauty and consulting salon are joining us for an evening of demonstrations which range from hair styling, nail care and spray tanning.
This, together with the opportunity to consult with trained personnel will provide something for everyone. Where else do you get the opportunity to get a free spray tan?!
If you would like to contribute towards our WI Produce Sale Table at the meeting, please bring along your items to help boost funds.
Kindly remember to bring mugs for tea/coffee and any cake donations would be most gratefully received.

The Christmas Meal at the Cottage Inn, 11th December, 7.30pm - cost £13 - we are now collecting payment.

The Book Club is reading Lady Chatterley’s Lover and meets on Thursday 26th September, at 8pm, at the Manor Pub to review.

The Walking Group has its next walk on Tuesday 8th October at 11am, meeting at the Social Club, Ousterne Lane, Fillongley.
Kind Regards,

Fillongley Lite WI Committee.

Saltisford Canal Fun Weekend

The Saltisford Canal Trust

Budbrooke Road


CV34 5RJ

Meet an Alpaca at the Canal Fun Weekend in Warwick!

The Saltisford Canal Trust is again taking part in the Heritage Open Days weekend in September.

This year we are planning a weekend of free, fun packed, special canal heritage events

on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September, from 10-00 am to 5 pm , at our canal side gardens in the centre of Warwick.

Inside our craft marquee, over the weekend, will be handmade gifts and a cake stall. Outside will be short boat trips

aboard Saltie 2, a historic steam narrowboat, model boat displays, children's activities, folk music, and a chance to meet

a friendly baby Alpaca or some Pygmy Goats!

Visitors can explore the Saltisford waterside gardens trail, experience our new sensory garden, learn more about the

history of our local canals in our Visitor Centre, and soak up some waterway heritage. In smaller marquees will be a beer

tent, live folk music, children’s activities, tombola, information on the Trust and displays by other local canal societies.

Come and join us this September for a celebration of our wonderful local canal heritage.

Most activities are FREE– some by donation.
The Saltisford Canal Centre is a short walk from Warwick Town Centre; the G1 bus stops outside on the Birmingham

Road. There is very limited car parking, but you may be able to park on adjacent Budbrooke Industrial Estate.

The Saltisford Canal Trust- a registered charity- was set up to restore the canal arm and to promote the use of the canal in

Warwick. It does this by having a day hire boat, waterside gardens open free to the public, provides moorings for both

visitor boats- over 800 in 2012- and long term moored Narrowboats, and provides a wide range of services including a

canal Visitor Centre, laundrette, gift shop, drinking water, electrical hook up, sewage pump-out, rubbish disposal; and

promotes knowledge of the historic significance of the canal on Warwick’s development.
