WI wants to bring more local women together

They have a packed programme arranged up to March 2023 including Ian Beavis talking about The Amelia Scott and its collections; Jan Parsons advising how not to be a victim of crime, scams and theft; Chris McCooey relating the scandals of Kent and Sussex; Eithne Hudson talking about Christmas decorations and so much more.

They arrange theatre visits, coffee mornings, have a book group, lunch club, visit gardens and again, much more, including stand-up paddle boarding – see the attached photo! Look like your kind of fun? If not, there are many more gentle activities on offer.

The first ever WI was formed in 1897 in On­tario, Canada and the motto was For Home and Country. The first WI in Britain was formed in 1915 in Llanfair PG on Anglesey.

The WI, as the name suggests, is based on the idea of bringing women together and offering opportunities to make a difference in their com­munities. The constitution states that member­ship is only open to women.
