Another fantastic Dorset Women’s Day

On 9 March 2019 we held our 14th Dorset Women’s Day and it was another amazing event. We had workshops on: Burlesque, sugarcraft, cross stitch, belly dancing, Free Fuzion, 50:50 campaign, singing, healthy eating, the benefits of using rosemary and lavender to name just a few.

A huge thank you to everyone who was involved in the day – from the Core Group members who plan the day, our fabulous volunteers who helped on the day (inc our brilliant catering team), all the workshop leaders who gave their time for free and the stallholders.

Thank you for all the feedback on the day – congratulations to Janine Miller who won the prize draw, picked at random from all the feedback forms.

Dorset Women’s Day

Dorset Women’s Day is on on Saturday 9 March (at the Dorford Centre, Dorchester) and has a wide range of exciting workshops including an Interview with Minette Walters, cross stitch, laughter workshop, and a singing workshop to name just a few!  Following the success of last year we have the Borough Garden’s House as an additional location again which will host workshops including burlesque, belly dancing and yoga. You’ll need to book at the Dorford Centre for workshops at both locations. 

We have some brilliant performances in the main hall throughout the day, along with stalls selling a range of products and information stands. See the Programme for more details.

Our amazing catering team will be selling drinks and delicious sandwiches and cakes. We also have our Rummage Room so come and have rummage and pick up some new to you.  If you have anything you’d like to donate please bring it along on the day. And our brilliant (qualified) creche team will be offering free places to look after younger children.

A huge thank you to everyone who is giving up their time to run a workshop, perform, have a stall as well as the brilliant team behind the scenes making this a fabulous day.

Our Patron Tracey West says:

“Hey there, all you wonder- filled women of Dorset!

I run an environmental charity and over the past 12 months, I’ve become acutely aware that the issues that frequently bite women here in the UK, do the same to women in Africa: period poverty, social isolation, depression, oppression, domestic violence and more.  By uniting to share our joys, passions, creative abilities, coping mechanisms and woes, I know we can build supportive frameworks within our communities, that give us better tools to cope with the challenges we’re frequently faced with.

Please use this wonderful opportunity to come together with others to put some positive energy in the pot and take some inspirational energy out too!”
