International Women’s Day will be celebrated once again in Knowle West this March with a free event at Filwood Community Centre.


It will be run by Community in Partnership Knowle West (CIPKW) on Wednesday 6 March – with a host of activities ranging from yoga, beauty therapies and taster massage sessions to information stalls with details about local groups and courses.


There will also be the chance to try your hand at dance, speak to health experts and get involved in some creative making activities with KWMC The Factory.

Centre Manager June McNeill who is organising the event says: “This will be the second year it is back at the community centre. It is just to celebrate women and our achievements and let them know what is available in the area they can take part in…”

 The event for women only will run from 10am – 3pm in Filwood Community Centre’s main hall. Anyone wanting a stall can call June McNeill on 0117 914 9216.
