Women’s Institute


We are a friendly group from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.  Our programme covers a broad variety of topics and allows plenty of time for catching up with old friends and making new ones.

If you are new to the area and would like to meet your neighbours or just fancy coming along to see what the WI is all about, we would be pleased to welcome you.
