Great events during Dorset Women’s Week

WAND is excited to launch the 2017 Dorset Women’s Week programme, which runs from 4-11 March and culminates in Dorset Women’s Day.

There are some fantastic events and opportunities including a Guided Tour of Arne Nature Reserve, Feminine and Fabulous confidence building workshop, Well Women Yoga and free swimming and exercise classes at Oxley Leisure Centre.

Don’t miss Dorset Women’s Day

On Saturday 11 March, at the Dorford Centre. The day will include a range of exciting workshops such as bike maintenance, flower arranging, assertiveness, African drumming, a ukulele crash course, ballet, and permaculture principles.

The fabulous WAND catering team will be on hand selling drinks, delicious sandwiches and cakes. There will be some lovely performances in the main hall throughout the day, along with stalls selling a range of products and information stands, plus the Rummage Room. If you have anything you’d like to donate for the Rummage Room please bring it along to the Dorford Centre on the day.

Tracey West one of the WAND patrons says: “It’s Dorset Women’s Day again, how fabulous! We meet once more ladies, in the wake of the most powerful women’s marches on the planet too. Women are incredible humans and I look forward to seeing you all today and celebrating the very best of West Dorset’s women.”

Second patron, Harriet Waters says: “Congratulations and thanks to WAND for using today to bring focus and attention to women locally and across the world. It has seldom been more important to preserve our gains and continue to champion women in all walks of life and connect with women of other cultures, and not just on International Women’s Day but on each of the remaining 364 days of the year, every year. But for now, enjoy the day.”
